First lets make the rainbow heart cake:

Preheat oven to 180 degree C. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan with oil and dust it with flour. Coat on all sides and set aside.

Now take butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl and whisk well. Now add in eggs one at a time and whip till creamy.

Divide the batter between 6 bowls and add one food colouring in each one and mix well. Now spoon this into the loaf pan and use a skewer to make swirls on it.

Now bake this in oven for 45 mins to 1 hour till the cake is done. Remove it and cool down completely. Now slice this into pieces and cut out heart shape using this. Put this in fridge for 30 mins to 1 hour or so.

  3. Dear Aarthi,

    I have a question on a recipe but not related to the cake recipe above. When we make rice flour at home after grinding, it will be slightly wet. This you can roast lightly if you want to keep it for several weeks. My question is can we use this lightly roasted rice flour to make dosas or should it always be freshly milled rice flour. Will it affect the end result of the dosa? I really want to try your dosa recipes but I don't always have time to keep making fresh rice flour (and I can't buy it in the shops here either).

    Thank you for your answer!! (Btw I love all your recipes- first thing I do in the morning is check your blog!!!)

  4. I tried the rainbow cake today and it turned out just fine. However, I did not go ahead and bake the second cake. I am doubtful how the inside rainbow cake that is done / baked already would turn out to be if it is baked one more time alongwith the outside cake... Won't it turn hard?

  5. Hi, wanted to know if the rainbow hearts have to be kept in the freezer section of the refrigerator or the other part.
