Here's a good Valentines Day recipe to make for
the ones you love!
1 stick of butter, cut into pieces
6 oz. white chocolate, finely chopped
1 plain white cake mix
1 cup whole milk
3 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
BERRY BUTTERCREAM FROSTING
3/4 cup fresh strawberries
1 stick butter at room temperature
3 3/4 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour one 9 inch square
cake pan and one 9 inch round cake pan. Place butter and white chocolate in saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring
until both are completely melted, about 3-4 minutes. Place the cake mix, milk, eggs, vanilla, and melted butter and
white chocolate in mixing bowl. Blend with electric mixer on low speed 1 minute. Increase speed to medium and
beat 2 minutes more. The batter should look well blended. Divide batter between the two pans. Bake at 350 for
Puree strawberries - you should have about 1/2 cup of puree.
Place butter in mixing bowl and blend on low speed until fluffy, about 30 seconds. Add the sifted confectioners sugar
and berry puree, blend on low speed until sugar is combined, about 1 minute. Increase mixer speed to medium and
beat until light and fluffy. If frosting seems too stiff, add milk a few drops at a time until desired consistency..
If frosting seems too thin, add confectioners sugar a tsp. at a time until desired consistency.
ASSEMBLY: Place the square cake on a platter with one
of the corners facing you at the bottom to form the "point" of the heart. Cut the round cake in half, placing each half
on adjoining sides of the square to form heart shape. Frost with berry buttercream frosting. Can decorate by scattering
shaved white chocolate curls on top and strawberries around cake on platter.
