Red Velvet Cake with Nutella Frosting

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.

How to Make This Easy Cake

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 🙂

Give her a nice even spread.

Like so 🙂

Baked! Now hurry, time to make the icing!

How to Make Nutella Frosting

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.


Now dig in!

  • Oven


  • 1 box red velvet cake mix
  • 1 box vanilla instant pudding mix 3.4 oz
  • 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


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a half sheet 13x18 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 over entire cake. Let cool for 20 minutes then cut into squares with a plastic knife.

    YUM!! That looks like nothing but pure heaven. And here I was looking all forward to treating myself to a Skinny Cow ice cream … now methinks I need to run to the store for supplies!

    This looks so delicious! Funny, cause I just made a chocolate texas sheet cake for my daughters birthday last night. This red velvet one looks wonderful!

    I don’t even particularly like boxed cake mixes, but time after time you tempt me to try out your concoctions (oops, creations) and, you know, they’re not half bad!

  4. Krissy's Creations

    Red Velvet really is so much fun! I need to make more sheet cake. So much more fun and homey than layer cakes ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Living The Sweet Life

    So simple. SO delicious – – totally my kind of cake!! And the contrast of colours between the cake and icing … gorgeous!! Also, let’s not even start with ting icing … nutella … fudge – – YUM

  6. Taylor

    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!

    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!

  8. The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh

    Aww, what a shame, I’ve got a vat of Nutella and sweetened condensed milk on hand. Would it be wrong to dip my hand in it and eat it that way?

  9. Heather (Heather's Dish)

    oooooh, the colors are so gorgeous! i’ve never had red velvet with anything but cream cheese frosting…maybe it’s time to branch out ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Liz (Little Bitty Bakes)

    Yum!! I think this is one of the best red velvet’s I’ve seen ever, because of that Nutella icing. Looks so good!

  12. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

    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!
