Chocolate Cake Hearts with Raspberry Frosting
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Confectioners Powdered Sugar
Prep time :
Bake/Cook time :
0:18 to 0:20
Yield :
8 individual hearts


*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 310°F.
  2. Line an 11 x 17-inch cake pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and sugar. Set aside.
  4. In a bowl large enough to hold all ingredients, whisk together egg and buttermilk until well combined.  Add oil, vanilla and salt and whisk until smooth.
  5. Meanwhile, heat water in microwave-safe bowl until hot.
  6. Add dry ingredients to buttermilk-egg mixture and whisk smooth. Add hot water in 3 increments, while whisking the batter smooth in between additions.
  7. Scrape batter into pan evenly and bake for 18-20 minutes until center of cake bounces back when lightly pressed with a finger or until an inserted toothpick comes clean. Let cake cool in pan. Set aside.
  8. Meanwhile, prepare frosting using a stand mixer with paddle attachment. Mix butter until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar a cup at a time, scraping sides of bowl between additions.
  9. Mix in raspberry puree one teaspoon at a time, waiting for previous amount to be fully incorporated. Scrape sides of bowl often.
  10. Place frosting in a piping bag fitted with a small star tip.
  11. When cake has cooled, flip cake pan upside down on a plastic wrap lined surface. Cut into heart shapes as close as possible.
  12. Pipe frosting on half of the cut outs and top with another half of cake.
  13. Decorate top and finish with a few raspberries and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
