Cake Note: With a single tablespoon of red food coloring, my cake turned out reddish-brown. For a more intense red color, use 2 tbsp. (1 fl. oz. or 28 mL). Although some cooks use even more red food coloring than that, I’m not comfortable putting that much red dye into my body.
Sugar hearts or sprinkles, as garnish (optional)
|Beat well: Chocolate batter should be thick, creamy, and red!|
|Want the chocolate batter redder? Use more food coloring!|
|The true test ... Is it tasty? YES!|
|A sample is ample: This is a very rich cake!|
I can see this cake being served at the end of a splendid meal ... in one of the world’s most romantic restaurants ... with ... with ... with ... Robert De Niro! Just as in the video, below. Alas! I have to start planning tonight’s dinner. We’re having left over meat loaf.
