Valentine's Day dessert: a romantic recipe to surprise your partner
This Valentine's Day, are you planning to amaze your loved one with a warm snack in your home, or with a romantic dinner made entirely by yourself? We have selected the perfect cake for such a special occasion: red cupcakes with a warm heart garnished with strawberries!
Red cupcakes with a warm heart: ingredients for 4 cupcakes
- 2 eggs
- 100 g granulated sugar
- 120 g white chocolate (bar)
- 80 g butter
- 50 g "00" flour
- 6 g cocoa powder
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 teaspoon red food colouring
- confectioner's sugar
- 8 strawberries to garnish
- mint leaves (optional)
Whisk the egg yolks and egg whites together in a bowl until they form a foamy mixture. Add the sugar, white chocolate and butter, which should be freshly melted in a pan.
Add the cocoa powder, flour, coloring and vanilla essence and stir until the mixture turns a beautiful red color with a homogeneous consistency. Then pour the mixture into 4 buttered and slightly floured molds.
Bake the cakes in a preheated oven at 190°C for about 13-15 minutes. When you see a slight crust appear on the edges but the mixture is still soft inside, it's time to take the molds out of the oven.
Leave the cakes to rest for about 2 minutes, then spread them on a plate by turning the mold upside-down. Sprinkle with icing sugar, add a couple of chopped strawberries and a couple of mint leaves to each cake, and serve the cake while still hot.
Now you're ready to let yourself be blown away by an exquisite pink apostrophe on this day that celebrates your love!
