Funfetti Cheesecake Bundt Cake Recipe

Julianne Bayer Dell | Beyond Frosting

Funfetti cheesecake bundt cake is just plain fun! This cute cake is perfect for party time with plenty of sprinkles.

Funfetti is like the Disneyland of cakes for me. It's full of joy and color and I've yet to come across someone who will tell me any differently. Well, besides my fiancé who wants nothing to do with Funfetti. I've chosen to accept him anyway. 

There are a lot of words that I could use to describe this cake but the truth is, it's just straight up good. It's one of those cakes where you don't put the fork down between bites. This is a Funfetti Cheesecake Bundt Cake.

This cake is a vanilla bundt cake filled with a Funfetti Oreo cheesecake filling. It’s topped with a creamy cheesecake glaze and more sprinkles.

Part of what makes this cake that amazing is the combination of the ingredients used. Forget the fact that it starts with a cake mix and let's focus on the pudding. I used Jell-O brand Simply Good vanilla bean instant pudding. It just helps intensify that vanilla flavor. If you can't find it, just use a standard instant vanilla pudding.

In this cake, you'll also find some sour cream to help achieve the right consistency. What makes this cake extra special? It’s the Golden Oreo cheesecake filling. You won’t want to share.

The cheesecake layer is simple. It's just cream cheese, an egg, some cake mix, sprinkles and Golden Oreos. The Golden Oreos are kinda optional but I think they contribute to the texture of the cake. I chose not to garnish this cake with crushed Oreos, but you could certainly do that too!

Finally, you have a basic cheesecake frosting that goes on top of the baked cake. You can see the pattern I used to pipe the frosting is quite simple but it does leave quite a bit of leftover frosting, so feel free to be creative here and definitely pick your best sprinkles for this occasion.

I don't really need an excuse to make this cake because every occasion calls for Funfetti.

Funfetti Cheesecake Bundt Cake Recipe

    12 Servings

Ingredients

For the Cake:
  • 1 box Vanilla Cake Mix
  • 1 3.4 ounce box Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup Sprinkles
For the Cheesecake:
  • 1 8 ounce package Cream Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/3 cup Vanilla Cake Mix
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Crushed Golden Oreos
  • 1/4 cup Sprinkles
For the Topping:
  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 4-5 teaspoons Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Sprinkles, for garnish

Directions

  1. For the cake: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously grease a large bundt pan with Crisco and coat it with flour. Do not skip this step, it is important to help the cake release from the pan!
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, vanilla pudding mix, eggs, oil, water, sour cream and vanilla extract. Mix all of the ingredients until they are well combined then fold in the sprinkles. Set aside.
  3. For the cheesecake: Remove the wrapper and microwave the cream cheese for 20-25 seconds.
  4. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the softened cream cheese with the egg, vanilla cake mix and vanilla extract. Mix all of the ingredients until they are well combined and smooth. Stir in the crushed Oreos and sprinkles.
  5. Place at least 1/3 of the cake batter into the bottom of the greased and floured pan, be sure to cover at least the bottom nooks and crannies.
  6. Then spread the Oreo cheesecake over top of the cake batter and try to spread it evenly.
  7. Finally, cover the cheesecake layer with the remaining cake batter. Bake at 350°F for 45-55 minutes. Note that baking times will vary by oven and pan type. To test the cake for doneness, insert a knife into the cake, if the knife comes out clean, the cake is done.
  8. Allow the cake to cool for at least 15-20 minutes and gently run a knife around the sides of the pan to help release the cake from the sides of the pan. Turn the cake onto a pan by placing the pan on the top of the cake and use two hands to invert it. Allow the cake to cool completely.
  9. For the topping: Remove the wrapper and microwave the cream cheese for 20-25 seconds and then beat the cream cheese until it’s smooth.
  10. Then add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract and beat until the ingredients are well combined. Then slowly add the heavy cream, one teaspoon at a time until the cream cheese reaches your desired consistency. It should still be thick, not watery, but it should run off your spoon without too much effort.
  11. Place the cream cheese in a piping bag and cut off the edge of the piping bag about ¼-inch from the bottom. Pipe the cream cheese frosting along the top and sides of the cake and garnish with sprinkles. Keep this cake refrigerated in an airtight container.

Notes

  • You’ll need 2 boxes of vanilla cake mix for this recipe, one for the actual cake and one to use for the cheesecake filling. If you don’t want to buy a second box of cake mix for the filling, you can substitute the vanilla cake mix with granulated sugar (see step 4).
