Double Chocolate Heart Cake

Valentines Heart Cake

This cake is a chocolate sponge baked in a heart shape, with a white chocolate fudgy topping and completed with swirls of pink marshmallow fluff. It’s a chocolately, gooey, heavenly cake just perfect for Valentine’s Day!

Chocolate Cake:-

175g light muscovado sugar

175g butter, softened

175g egg – approx. 3 large or 4 medium, beaten

25g plain yoghurt

175g self-raising flour

25g cocoa powder

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Oven 175c – I used a heart-shaped baking tin (equivalent to 7”/20cm round)

Beat the sugar and butter together well then add all the other ingredients and beat for a minute until just combined. Pour into the prepared tin. Bake for approximately one hour or until the sponge starts to shrink away from the side of the tin and a skewer comes out clean.

White Chocolate fudge Topping:-

50g butter

1 tablespoon cornflour

1 tablespoon golden syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

200g white chocolate

Put the butter, cornflour, golden syrup and vanilla extract in a pan over a medium heat. Stir continuously while heating gently until all the ingredients are combined and thicken. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate, stirring well until melted. Allow to cool a little (but not fully as it will go quite stiff) and then spread onto the top of the cake. Alternatively you could bake two sponges and use this as a filling.

I then made a Marshmallow Fluff topping to finish this decadent cake! The recipe is in ‘Bake Me I’m Yours – Sweet Bitesize Bakes’ by Sarah Trunvic. Find out more about her book at www.maisoncupcake.com I love this book as not only does she give some ideas for lovely projects, the recipes are simple and easy to follow and turn out perfectly.
