    and food colouring. Whisk in the eggs, then mix in the flour until just combined.

    4. Set aside 1/3 cup of batter. Pour remaining batter into the baking pan.

    6. Pour the cheesecake mixture on top of the red velvet batter in the baking pan.

    7. Combine the remaining red velvet batter with the milk. Drop dollops of the mixture on top of the cheesecake layer, then swirl the batters together using the tip of a knife.
