Red Velvet Sheet Cake Recipe


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 generous cup buttermilk
  • 1 7/8 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 2½ cups powdered sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line a 9x13-inch baking pan with foil and lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray..
  2. In a saucepan, combine the butter and the buttermilk and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour and cocoa. Stir in the sugar. Add in the eggs, sour cream, red food coloring, vanilla, baking soda and salt. Mix to combine.
  3. Pour the boiling butter/buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture, a little at a time, stirring constantly. The batter will be very thin. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake the cake for 25-28 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. To make the frosting, beat together the cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Add in the powdered sugar a little at a time. Beat for 2-3 minutes. Frost the cake. Cut into slices to serve.
