Red Velvet Chess Cake

Red Velvet Chess Cake

My grandmother used to make chess cake when I was a child. It's was such a buttery and delicious cake. My grandmother made hers with yellow cake, but I decided try something a little different tonight, since we're red velvet junkies here.

It only uses 5 ingredients that you may even have on hand already. Here's what you'll need.

  • 1 box of red cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 4 cups of powdered sugar

And that's it. Pretty easy list.

Preheat your oven to 325°.

First you'll needed to dump cake mix into a mixing bowl with 1 egg and the melted stick of butter.

It will be more like a dough than a cake mix. I used a wooden spoon to mix mine.

Grease a 9x13 inch pan. Press the dough firmly into the bottom of the pan. 

In a mixing bowl added the softened cream cheese and remaining 2 eggs.

Mix on medium to high speed for 3 to 4 minutes.

Add in the powdered sugar a half of a cup at a time until it's all incorporated.

Once all of the sugar is mixed in pour it over the cake mix.

Spread it evenly over the top with a spatula.

Bake at 325° for 45 minutes. It will be browned around the edges when it's ready. Don't over bake it, you want the cake be soft and gooey.
