“Entertaining Tales From Chestnut Cottage”: Red Velvet Cheesecake!

asheville north carolina interior designer kathryn crisp greeley presents recipe for layered red velvet cheescake

It is not secret that I make several red velvet cakes during the month of February for friends and family…including our UPS man at Kathryn Greeley Designs!  When I came across the image of this Red Velvet Cheesecake, I was most fascinated.  I decided to make my regular red velvet cake in three round pans, rather than my normal 9X13 pan.  I used two of the three  layers for the bottom and top layers, then did my old faithful NY cheesecake recipe in the center.  The third layer, I crumbled up and lined the springform  pan sides (this cake is so moist, it was a breeze to make stick up the sides of the springform pan). After the cheesecake was out of the oven and cooled, I added a top layer of the red velvet cake and topped with the red velvet cream cheese frosting and garnished with the remaining “red velvet crumbs”.  A bit of work and millions of calories, but most yummy!

Enjoy this  decadent treat!
