For some reason, Valentines Day always seems to creep up on me, food-wise. We get to that evening, have a special picnic dinner in front of the fireplace, and I have fun food for everyone else but not much for me! Each year I vow to come up with something SCD-friendly to enjoy. . .
Well, this year I finally did it! It helped that I had spotted a 12-cup heart baking pan at World Market earlier in the year.
I took my favorite carrot cake recipe, and spooned batter into heart baking pan (you could also make these into cupcakes. Use some colorful cupcake liners!).
While that was cooking I made buttercream frosting and added the cooled juice of some heated up frozen cherries for a nice pink color. The shade of pink can be adjusted with more or less cherry juice. I used 1 Tablespoon.
The result was delicious and fun! How novel to enjoy some colored, creamy frosting on my muffins! It really made the muffins so much more festive and special.
My family also liked them, and I think you will too!
Here's the recipe.
Beat until fluffy:
Have a great Valentines Day!
