The day of love is upon us once again! While Valentine’s Day spells a romantic evening out (or in) for many, for my kids it meant “mommy should make us a red cake.” I couldn’t refuse, especially after I woke up to specially customized ‘Mom is My Valentine’ cards that they had made at school last week. So, I rummaged through my old cookbooks in search for a recipe that could satisfy my kids’ sweet tooth and still display the ‘redness’ of Valentine’s day, as they had eloquently put it. I struck gold with the White Chocolate Raspberry Cake. Here is what you need to make it happen:
1 cup chocolate cookie crumbs
3 tablespoons white sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 (10 ounce) package frozen raspberries
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
2 cups white chocolate chips
1/2 cup half-and-half cream
3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
I hadn’t made this cake in a long time, and my direction seemed to skip some essential points. I visited some of my favorite recipe sites, and luckily found some easy-to-follow directions that were very helpful. Check them out here.
Try this tasty treat with your kids and let us know how it goes! We love to hear about it!
