Take out the red cake from fridge and slice it up evenly.

Take a heart shape cookie cutter and cut out a heart shape in every slice of cake. Keep the heart aside. (you can make cake pops with leftover cake)

Now add 1/4 th of the greased pan with chocolate batter and gently tap on the counter to spread evenly.

Arrange the hearts next to each other in the center of the loaf pan. Make sure there is no gap in between 2 hearts. pack them closely.

Leave some space around the packed hearts, so that we can fill that space with chocolate batter and it hide the hearts.

Now add the remaining chocolate batter to the sides of the pan and gently tap it on counter, so that batter flow through all around the hearts. Don’t tap it hard, the hearts will get misplaced.

Bake it for 50 mins or Insert toothpick on the center of the cake, it should comes out clean.

Once it baked, cool in the pan for 15 minutes and then remove it to cooling rack.

Hidden cake is ready!
