As I am on a bread kick this week and everyone knows how much I like Red Velvet.
I didn’t tell my family this was weight watchers.
I didn’t even tell them it was made with beets.
They couldn’t believe the truth when I told them.
My family agreed this Red Velvet Beet Banana Bread was a keeper. They even asked me to make it again.
After I saw how well received the bread was I decided to put it on my list next time I have brown bananas.
I was afraid of how the color would turn.I was happily surprised to see the bread was a deep red.
Next time I think I will use a regular loaf pan to make the proportions more equal.
I personally don’t like round loaves. But that is just me.
They are hard to keep the pieces strong enough to butter or add jam.
And they don’t fit in the toaster.
I ended up cutting the longest pieces in half and it worked out fine.
I believe my family would have devoured the bread no matter what shape it was in!
Red velvet cake is so pretty and perfect for the holiday season.
We all know my heart belongs to cookies, not cake.
So I decided it was time for me to find a red velvet cookie recipe.
This cookie is the cookie of all cookies.
The Red Velvet makes it perfect for not only Christmas. It is perfect for Valentines Day, Sweetest Day and Birthdays.
The cheesecake filling gives this cookie an advantage over the more common sugar cookie.
Better than a Whoopie Pie this Red Velvet Cheesecake cookie is lighter and easier to eat while you are entertaining.
If you think your holiday baking list is set, think again.
You have to make these cookies!
They will wow everyone who takes a bite!
Look for the cookie platters to have a Red Velvet Cheesecake Cookie front and center.
I had a red velvet cake mix hiding in the back of my cupboard. It was getting close to the expiration date so I decided to make it for dinner the next.
My sister was coming over for dinner and I needed a beautiful dessert to have for after dinner.
As I was baking I noticed the cake wasn’t rising as high as I liked. So I improvised.
The cheesecake was going to have to become the top of the cake.
The other cake would be the garnish on top.
This cake came together easier and prettier than I expected.
The ratio between the cake layer and the cheesecake was close to 1 to 1. And that was fine with me.
The texture and taste of the dessert was fresh and moist.
I would definitely make this cake again. For ease of preparation I would consider using a cheesecake pudding box. I may even try the tub of cheesecake from the dairy isle.
I am all about easy without sacrificing flavor!
I hope you like this recipe.
If you try it let me know what modifications you made.
Good Luck and Enjoy!
