I was perusing the local Target the other day and came across a pretty red bundt cake pan.
I’ve never made bundt cakes before, but they always look so pretty and I figured I’d take it home with me and try to figure out something fun to make with it. THEN I stumbled across some Valentine’s Day cookie cutters in my favorite aisle–the dollar aisle at Target (even though they were really $2.50, but whatever).
Given that the upcoming “holiday” is Valentine’s Day. I thought I’d try to come up with a fun Valentine’s Day cake idea and here the birth of the Strawberry Brownie Valentine’s Day Bundt cake was born. Sheesh that’s a long name. I’ll just call it my Valentine’s Day Bundt cake from here on out.
One package of Strawberry Cake Mix
One package of brownie mix

Heart Cookie Cutter
Bundt Cake Pan
6. When the whole thing is done baking, it will look like this. Let it cool for 30 minutes or so, then flip it out of the pan and onto your platter or cake plate.
Aren’t bundt cakes pretty???
YAY! You can see my brownie hearts! I think next time I’d use a cookie cutter that was a little longer rather than wider though because my hearts are definitely very wide.
What a nice little surprise when you cut the cake, huh!? And no, the brownies weren’t dry, overcooked, or anything. They were nice and moist and tastilicious!!
The last thing to do on your list? Cut a piece and do a a little taste test. And yes, it does taste JUST as good as it looks. Not too sweet, not too chocolatey or strawberry-y. Just perfect. I’m SO glad I took a risk and decided to try this beauty out. Let me know what you think or what recipes you make for Valentine’s Day!
