Martha Makes: Valentine Goodies

The February issue of Martha Stewart Magazine had a bunch of great recipes.  After weeding out the ones that used never-heard-of-you ingredients and the kitchen equipment made out of spun gold, I settled on two recipes that are super delicious and surprisingly simple!

First up: a yummy breakfast sandwich using frozen puff pastry.  All you do is roll out the puff pastry and cut it into squares, put some bacon on top, bake it in the oven, and top it with a fried egg.  Easy!  You can get the recipe on Martha’s website

I made this for breakfast on Valentine’s Day, so I decided to be cutesy and cut the pastry out as hearts.

The yellow goop is egg wash.

The flaky pastry made it taste like an egg Toaster Strudel, yum!  This was pretty easy to make, but not really for quick mornings since you need to thaw and roll out the pastry, then let it refreeze for 30 minutes.  I rolled it out the night before and stuck it back in the freezer.

Simple and yummy!  Perfect Martha!

Next up, I made a super yummy, super moist, super gooey coconut sheet cake!

You can also get this recipe on Martha's website.  This month there were like 5 chocolate cake recipes that all looked delicious, but this was the easiest to make so it won. 

Evolution of a cake.

This kind of tasted like a coffee-flavored German Chocolate Cake.  There is coffee in both the cake and the coconut topping, so the coffee flavor is pretty strong (although it mellowed out and the cake tasted even better the second day). 

This cake is veeerrrrry rich!  A small piece is all you need.  I will definitely be making this one again!

Topped with whipped cream and toasted coconut, perfect!  Two for two this month Martha!

Hope you try these out!  And have a lovely Valentine’s Day!

Thanks for reading!
