Happy Valentine’s Day guys!!
I am sure it’s been a hectic week for all the couples :P. So many days to celebrate and so many gifts to buy :D.
Some of you might have thought of baking something for that someone special in your lives.
Remember last year we made the “Chocolate Brownie with white chocolate frosting”. It had turned out delicious. This time I made a Chocolate Bundt Cake with a Strawberry Surprise. For me, Chocolate resonates with love <3.
And nothing better than a moist chocolate bundt cake with strawberry flavoured hearts in each slice. Strawberries and chocolate is a perfect combination for Valentines.
If you remember how we made the “Peek-a-boo Cake” , this will not seem difficult to you at all.
First, you make a strawberry pound cake and cut out hearts from it using a sharp cookie cutter. Then you place these hearts within a chocolate batter and bake in a bundt pan.
For a Peek-a-boo or surprise inside cake-
Use only a pound cake recipe.
Cool the cake before using a cookie cutter.
Use a cookie cutter that is small enough to allow the cut shapes to be covered with the batter.
Use a thick batter to hold the cut-shapes together.
The Chocolate Bundt Cake with a Strawberry Surprise was both delicious and stunning.
Also, this was the first time, that my brother ate a fruit cake :P. All because, the strawberry pound cake was hidden within a sinfully moist chocolate cake.
I know, this is clearly not a fruit cake, but the strawberry pound cake uses fresh strawberries so there is definitely some fruit involved in the Chocolate Bundt Cake with a Strawberry Surprise :D.
Let me know how you guys celebrate the day with your loved ones. And I hope some Chocolate is involved !
