How fun is red velvet cake?! It really is so stunning. This jazzed up cake mix sheet cake is so simple to prepare you will have it on your table in no time at all. Did I mention that I iced it with a Nutella Fudge like icing? Let’s just say you are in for a treat today!

I am loving my new red cake stand that I found from my friend Lindsey from high school. She makes them herself and they are adorable. Check out her blog Sweet Stax to pick some up for yourself!

Here’s your line-up folks. Nice and easy.

I love this recipe for so many reasons, but one is that you just dump it into the mixer. No particular order.

I add a small box of vanilla pudding mix.

Add it right to the mixer.

….milk, sour cream and some oil.

4 fabulous eggs.

Ready to mix!

How pretty is this?!

Pour your batter onto your prepared baking sheet. Please spray with cooking spray before ๐Ÿ™‚

Give her a nice even spread.

Like so ๐Ÿ™‚

Baked! Now hurry, time to make the icing!

Your icing consists of Nutella and sweetened condensed milk. I doubled what you see here.

Warm in the microwave and give a good mix.

Time to drizzle over your warm cake.

Ahhhh!

Now dig in!

Red Velvet Sheet Cake with Nutella Fudge Icing

1 box red velvet cake mix

1 3.4 ounce box vanilla instant pudding mix

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup sour cream

4 large eggs

1 cup sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup Nutella

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a half sheet 13×18 inch baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. I lined my baking sheet with a silpat liner, the cake can be done with or without it.

2. Place cake mix, pudding mix, milk, oil, sour cream and eggs into mixer and mix until well combined, about 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer batter to prepared baking sheet and spread evenly. Bake for 25-32 minutes, until baked through. Remove from oven and start icing.

3. Place sweetened condensed milk and nutella into a microwave safe dish and heat for 30 seconds, or until smooth when stirred. Drizzle icing over warm cake spreading oven entire cake. Let cool for 20 minutes then cut into squares with a plastic knife.

Makes 24 servings

    Hi there. If I wanted to use the cake mix for a 9×13 baking pan, do I stil use the same #/measurements of extra ingredients? 4 eggs, 1/2 cup of sour cream, vanilla pudding mix? I’d like to use this recipe to make cake balls.

    Thanks!

    I read the directions wrong where you mentioned that you doubled the icing ingredients, meaning you doubled what was actually in the picture. Thought you meant you doubled the actual ingredients. Yup. I have a huge measuring cup of icing. :-/ Haven’t tried them yet, but the icing is amazing! LOL

    This cake is amazing! I just made this last night but substituted applesauce for the oil and greek yogurt instead of sour cream. It only took 18 minutes to bake.

    I made this last weekend but didn’t have Nutella so I used Biscoff spread instead for the icing. It turned out great!

  5. Hi! I am looking to make these for Valentine’s day and was wondering if you think these would work as well if made into cupcakes or in a heart shaped silicon cake tray? I am not against using a baking sheet, but I need to be able to take them with me so any transport tips would also be appreciated! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I know red velvet seems to be getting some backlash lately but I don’t get it. This looks ridiculously good, Jenny! And the red colour is stunning! Now if only I saw this when it was posted I could have been there eating it by now. Love it.

    I made this to take to school and share with my coworkers, but my husband saw it and asked if he could have a piece. I said sure since it wasn’t for anything special at school. He then proceeded to have a second piece and say, “THIS IS DELICIOUS!!” My husband doesn’t like desserts! I was amazed. Then when I got up this morning, I saw that yet another piece was missing. Goodness…guess I’ll only take half of the cake to school. hehe

    Hey Jenny! I love your blog, and EVERYTHING I’ve ever made has turned out wonderfully – and I’ve made a ton! =) Quick question, I’ve never used a silpat liner – do you still have to grease/spray it? Thank you!

  12. Looks amazing. Who would have thought of nutella and sweetened condensed milk icing. Wow. When you pour the icing on it looks thin, but the frosting seems to have thickened up. Lovely!

  13. Did you know it was National Nutella Day on Sunday? Don’t quote me on that but I read it on 3 or 4 different blogs and I took their words for it so your timing is perfect ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love how you just warmed the Nutella in the microwave and poured. That’s my kind of frosting: EASY!

    And I love that it’s just dump in, in no particular order, and mix. Your recipes are always great for that!
