Today is the first day of February, which means that there are still a good 2 full months of winter here left in Montreal, and good ‘ol Valentine’s Day is just 2 short weeks away. I like Valentine’s Day, especially the past few years since I’m lucky enough to be in love with a genuinely wonderful person, but I also like it for the holiday-themed baking opportunities it brings.
This year I received a neat gift package from Lucky Leaf, including a heart-shaped cake pan, really cute heart-shaped measuring spoons, delicious-looking cherry pie filling, and the recipe for a yummy-sounding Valentine’s Day delight – Sweetheart Cherry Cake!
The Lucky Leaf site has a lot of tempting recipes (Crunchy Amaretto Peach Cobler, Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie, & Apple Coconut Crisp to name a few). I’m planning to give the recipe a try a bit later this week, and will be sure to post lots of pictures (can’t wait to make a heart-shaped cake!), but in the meantime, Lucky Leaf have also volunteered to offer a similiar giveaway for some of my readers!
Here’s the deal – send me your favorite Valentine’s Day baking recipes, and the top 10 entries will win their own heart-shaped cake pan, along with a recipe for Sweetheart Cherry Cake! Your can submit as many entries as you like, however you’ll only be eligible to win one prize. To submit your entry, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m looking for anything Valentine’s Day related – cookies, pies, cakes, muffins, truffles, you name it!
Good luck to everyone and happy baking!
