Gooey Red Velvet Pudding Cake

This Gooey Red Velvet Pudding Cake is deliciously decadent and irresistible! This moist cake creates its own sauce to spoon overtop!

If you’ve never had pudding cake before, you’ve been missing out!  A pudding cake is not a cake that is made with pudding, it’s so much better!  Once baked, a pudding cake creates a wonderfully delicious sauce on the bottom.  As the cake is served, the sauce is spooned overtop resulting in a ridiculously rich and deliciously moist cake!

I make Chocolate Pudding cake all the time and I’ve even made an awesome Banana Pudding cake… but this decadent treat is my favorite yet!

Red Velvet is typically a cake that is neither chocolate or vanilla, it’s somewhere in between.  It’s usually made with buttermilk and red food dye (in the past it was often colored with beet juice!), the acidity of the buttermilk is said to bring out the reddish color of the cocoa powder.  Either way, this is a delicious combination of pudding cake and red velvet!  It is moist and so richly delicious!

  1. Something seems off on this recipe. Cooked ten minutes longer than shown and water is still swimming on top. Double checked all ingredients and quantities and made according to recipe. Any ideas?

    1. I make pudding cakes all of the time and that’s never happened to me so I’m not sure why yours has water on top. Mine comes out looking like a cake on top and gooey underneath when I spoon into it. Was the water you added boiling?

        1. Hmm, the only thing I can possibly think is that the water wasn’t hot enough?? Unfortunately I can’t say for sure what happened because I wasn’t there but hopefully that helps.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing your awesome post with Full Plate Thursday and hope you are having a great day!
    Come Back Soon!
