Red Velvet Heart Torte Recipe

Red Velvet Heart Torte Recipe

I bake this scrumptious, fruit-topped layer cake every February 14 for my husband's birthday. The heart shape is really pretty for Valentine's Day. —Amy Freitag, Stanford, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:14 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package red velvet cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 carton (6 ounces) raspberry yogurt
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 cup raspberry pie filling

Directions

  • 1. Prepare cake batter according to package directions. Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. heart-shaped baking pans. Bake at 350° for 30-33 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

Place bottom layer on a serving plate; top with a fourth of the yogurt mixture. Repeat layers three times. Spread pie filling over the top to within 1 in. of edges. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Yield: 14 servings.
