These one-bowl, no-mixer pink cakes are the perfect way to celebrate the month of February. They shout "I love you", "I care", and/or "I want to be your friend". Besides being ridiculously easy, they're also ridiculously delicious!
February... a month that can bring winter doldrums. The cold, dreary days sometimes seem endless. But there's a respite! I love that February 14th is a game-changer regarding all that. Valentine's Day brings cheer and a reason to celebrate family, friends and loved ones. We're sharing 5 delicious pink cakes that are perfect for surprising your sweetheart(s) with something beautiful and tantalizing.
Then again... you could also make all five... that's perfectly legal, but only in February!
All five of these cakes have a tender, moist crumb and come together quickly with just one bowl and no electric mixer needed. The icings offer the same ease of preparation. Choose one (or more!) - and see if "love" doesn't waft through your kitchen as they bake!
With each recipe, we've included pics of the inside as well as the pretty pink exterior. As you will see, no dry, boring cakes in this collection!
