Easy Red White and Blue Cake Recipe

Course: Dessert
Author: Jenn


  • 1 box white cake mix
  • ingredients required from cake mix oil, egg whites
  • red food coloring
  • blue food coloring
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-4 Tbsp. fat-free milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract


  • Heat oven to 325ºF. Generously spray a bundt cake pan with cooking spray.
  • Make cake mix according to the box directions, using water, oil and egg whites.
  • Pour 1 1/4 cup of the batter into a small bowl and color it red with food coloring.
  • Pour 1 cup of batter into another bowl and mix in blue coloring.
  • Pour red batter into the bottom of the prepared pan. Carefully pour white batter over red batter in pan.
  • Now, carefully pour blue batter over white - it doesn't need to cover the white all the way.
  • Bake as directed on box, or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool until warm and them flip over onto a serving platter or plate.
  • When cake is cool, combine powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in medium bowl and mix until fully incorporated. I like to add the milk one tablespoon at a time to make sure it doesn't get too runny. If glaze isn't runny enough, add more milk and if it's too runny, add more powdered sugar.
  • Drizzle over the top of the cake. Slice and serve.
