Red Velvet Cheesecake Tea Cakes

Teresa Ambra

A few months ago, I got the inspiration to make assorted Tea Cakes for Christmas baskets and giving rather than our usual cookies. I knew Red Velvet Cheesecake Tea Cakes had to be one of those goodies I ended up baking up. These delicious Tea Cakes start with a Red Velvet cake mix and I ended up icing them with canned Cream Cheese frosting. They were mouthwatering.

I baked up about 15 different varieties of Tea Cakes and baked each one in the miniature Bundt tins in a 20-tin pan. The hardest part about this recipe is greasing and flouring the pans, followed up by hand washing afterwards! But the cakes turned out perfectly and were so scrumptious that it was hard to stay out of them.

I blocked off three sets of two day intervals where my husband and I did nothing but bake, wrap, label and clean up. Because of the volume I did for each recipe, I usually was never able to make more than three different kinds on a single day, although one day I baked four different kinds. But I only have eight of the miniature Bundt pans so you have to stop and rewash a lot when you’re doing the volume I was doing.

After each interval we would try to fill about 40-50 gift bags with about 6-8 assorted Tea Cakes each. My husband would then take the gift bags out to neighbors and friends for delivery. That part is finally done and we are starting to get a chance to rest after two weeks of a lot of work!

Red Velvet Cheesecake Tea Cakes are a delightful dessert to bring to any Christmas, holiday or Valentine’s party! They’re festive, beautiful, elegant and did I mention, delicious? Yes they are. You’ll love ’em too.

I used canned cream cheese frosting by microwaving it a few seconds to soften the texture. Then I sprinkled red sprinkles over top.

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients for the cake. I used two cans of Cream Cheese Icing and red sprinkles for the icing.

Grease and flour miniature bundt pans. Spoon cake batter into muffin tins about two-thirds full.

Bake in 350 degree oven about 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Because I was baking two large 20-tin Bundt pans at a time, I rotated the Bundt pans on racks after ten minutes of baking time to ensure even baking. Remove miniature Tea Cakes from pans and place on cooling racks.

For icing: Soften the cream cheese icing in microwave about 15-20 seconds. Then pipe the icing over top of individual Bundt cakes as desired. Sprinkle with red sprinkles. Allow the icing to set 30-60 minutes before wrapping individually in plastic wrap.

Canned icing is great to use as a glaze as long as you soften it in the microwave a few seconds. It makes the recipe that much easier, too.

Here’s the recipe.

Red Velvet Cheesecake Tea Cakes

Red Velvet Cheesecake Tea Cakes are utterly delightful. This festive, elegant and beautiful dessert is perfect to bake around Christmas time for holiday parties or even Valentine's Day. The Tea Cakes are easier to make since they start with a cake mix and include chocolate chips and a cheesecake pudding mix. They're glazed with a canned cream cheese icing and sprinkled with red sprinkles for the finishing touch. Wonderful holiday dessert.

Equipment

  • 1 or 2 20-tin miniature Bundt cake pan
  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • 1 heavy duty mixing spoon
  • 1 microwave
  • 2 cooling racks
  • measuring cups

Ingredients
  

  • 1 box Red Velvet cake mix
  • 1 pkg. cheesecake Jell-O pudding mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 12 oz. bag chocolate chips
  • 1 can cream cheese frosting
  • red sprinkles if desired

Instructions
 

  • Mix all but chocolate chips together well.
  • Fold in chips.
  • Spoon into miniature well-greased and floured miniature Bundt pans.
  • Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Cool completely before adding icing.
  • Microwave canned frosting (removing foil and lid) about 15-20 seconds until it softens.
  • Drizzle frosting over top of individual Tea cakes.
  • Sprinkle the icing immediately with sprinkles.

Notes

NOTE: Rotate Bundt pans on racks half-way through baking time if baking more than one 20-tin Bundt pan rack at a time.
 
NOTE: The Bundt pans need to be very generously greased and floured before using.
 
NOTE: Be careful not to overfill the tins since the batter expands while baking. Otherwise it will make it  harder to remove the cakes from the pan.
 
NOTE: I purchased the miniature 20-tin Bundt pans at Jo-Ann’s Fabric and Crafts.
