My True Love Cake

This looks like the most delish Valentines cake ever. I got it from the Taste of Home newsletter today and thought I would share it with you folks who don't get the newsletter.

My True Love Cake
Taste of Home
"Like my mother and grandmother, I have special recipe for every occasion," notes Beverly Coyde of Gasport, New York. "For Valentine's Day - one of my favorite holidays - this beautiful cake is an outstanding treat."

Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil

FILLING:
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling, divided

Directions:
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Beat in water and oil until smooth. Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. heart-shaped baking pans. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Beat in cream and extract. Place one cake on a serving plate; spread with half of cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate for 10 minutes. Top with 1 cup pie filling and second cake; spread with remaining cream cheese mixture. Make a heart-shaped indentation in center of cake; fill with remaining pie filling. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 12 servings.

  4. Tori, I was excited about this recipe until you posted the nutritional information. LOL But I do have a heart-shaped cake pan and I plan so I'll probably try it anyway!

  5. What a pretty cake! I like themed desserts, like that. But I agree...did you have to post the nutritional content? :)

    Thanks for your comment on my blog! I have been over here before, but I don't think I commented. Thanks for your work with the Croatian people! My dad was born and raised in Czechoslovakia (he escaped in the early 70's) so I have a special place in my heart for Eastern European folk. They need the Lord!

    Have a great day!
