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


  • 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


  • 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.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine yogurt and confectioners' sugar; fold in whipped topping. Cut each cake horizontally into two layers. 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.

"I haven't tried this recipe yet but for the simple fact it got 5 stars from other reviewers and 2 stars from one only because they don't sell red velvet cake mix in her grocers and would like the recipe, bringing the overall rating down I felt the need to offset the rating with annoying peoples ratings. To lindabrandon: DO NOT rate a recipe based on what's not available in your market or your lack of googling red velvet cake recipe and rating a recipe based on your laziness. That's not what the rating system is for. You make a recipe per the submitters instructions and rate it based on your experience. What's so hard about that?????"

"I modified it a little bit. I used fat free frozen whipped topping. Otherwise I left everything the same. It was very delicious. I would definitly make it again. The only problem is there is no nutritional value and calories there. I figured out, that my version has 269 calories, and 11.4g of fat."

"I made this cake for a church bake sale. Local stores did not carry raspberry pie filling. I changed everything raspberry to strawberry. Not hard to make. Beautiful on the table. Filling is quite tasty."

"This recipe sounds good but I have never seen a red velvet cake mix in my stores here in WA. I would love a recipe for red velvet cake."
