My Easy Valentine's Day Cake
I'd like to share an easy Valentine cake I made.
My sweetheart has a sweet tooth, so last year I decided to bake a Valentine's Day cake for him as my official gift. This may seem like a simple thing to all the ladies out there who can actually bake, but to me it was a mammoth task.
I found a super easy pound cake recipe online and my second attempt paid off (with a little help from my teenage daughter, who couldn't stop laughing at me!). This is it:
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
2 Cups Sugar
2 Sticks Butter
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp lemon or vanilla extract
Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs and vanilla. Add in flour and beat for about 5 minutes. Pour into heart shaped pan. Start in cold oven. Bake for 70 minutes at 350 F.
I decorated the cake with icing sugar, chunks of yummy chocolate, and fresh strawberries, and presented it to him on Valentine's day morning.
Needless to say, I was queen for a day. He loved it... and so did I!
I hope you enjoy this easy Valentine cake too.
