I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. We were busy and all over the place, we had plans for the weekend but nothing went according to plan, hubby had to work Saturday and we had to fit all our weekend tasks in one day. Every time, I wanted to finish a project, something would come up! But yesterday morning, I had time to prepare red velvet mini loaf cakes, instead of using a round or square pan, I decided to use a mini loaf pan, so they could be easier to eat and to store for the next two days!
Let me share with you how I made these:
I started by gathering the ingredients I needed; red velvet cake mix from President’s Choice, oil, 2 eggs (I suggest you follow the directions on the package) then grease and lightly flour the pan and don’t forget to preheat the oven at 350 degrees:
Here is how the batter looks once mixed on an electric mixer, very red as you can see:
Once the batter is ready, start pouring it to the pan and divide batter evenly, I love how the red velvet cake mix smells:
In the middle of the process, I remembered eating mini loafs cakes at my parent’s house with fruits inside of the bread, so I decided to mix things up a bit by adding raspberry jam before baking them:
It’s looking great and delicious, except the raspberry jam sank to the bottom on it’s own. I should’ve known this would happen but I didn’t think about it. I would’ve preferred if the raspberry jam would’ve remained on top or in the middle of the cakes, so next time, I will add the jam only after the cakes are baked:
This is how the red velvet mini loaf cakes looks like, fluffy, moist and red. Let them cool for about 15 minutes before serving:
Now, this is how they look inside, they were very moist, I am very glad I tried this:
This is another close-up picture I wanted to share with you: if you look closely, you can see the raspberry jam is at the bottom of the red velvet mini loaf cake, it’s not was I was going for but they did just fine:
Overall, the red velvet mini loaf cakes tasted great, we loved and ate them. You can see here our son, trying to get a bite while I was taking pictures for the post. We didn’t give him any cake because he was having breakfast and we didn’t want to spoil it for him. He cried a bit but calmed down when daddy distracted him.
Note to myself: Next time, I will make sure to add the jam only once the cakes are baked and take pictures for the post when the cake is out of baby’s reach:
Hope everyone will have a great week!
Thanks again for stopping by!
