Vegan Red Velvet Cheesecake

Since I made 7″ cheesecakes, the red velvet cake batter will also be baked into 2 – 7″ cake pans.
One layer will be for the base of the cheesecake (after cooling and unmolding) and the other will be for chunks to go into the batter- so be sure to prepare the red velvet cake recipe first.

Serves: serves 8
