Hi everyone

I am looking for a good white chocolate cake recipe. Preferably not a mud cake but something a bit lighter. Dont know if this is possible as white melted chocolate will have to be used as there is obviously no such thing as white cocoa powder :D

Thank you in advance

Lisa

ARLB's White Chocolate Whisper Cake. If you don't mind artificial flavorings, then I'd suggest taking your regular vanilla cake and washing it down with white chocolate syrup, like Torani. I've never thought about making a simple syrup and fortifying it with melted chocolate, but maybe? If you really want to go down the road further, look into the "gourmet cake flavor's" thread here on CC that's a million billion pages long, look for the google document. There's a box mix based one in there.

It's definitely called whisper cake for a reason.  White chocolate is such a delicate subtle flavor that it kind of gets lost in the cake.  I made this cake long before I first tried White Chocolate Ganache, and I think that would have been the best compliment to the cake. (rather than the strong vanilla buttercream)

there's also a White Chocolate pudding mix (Jello brand I can only find at Walmart) that you could add to your cake mix

thanks again

I believe that the closest thing to a US pudding mix, is what in the UK would be sold as Angel Delight (I remember that Butterscotch was a fave at our house growing up). What I don't know, is the weight of a pudding mix in the US or the weight of Angel Delight, in order to do a conversion. And I don't know if AD comes in white chocolate flavour. So yeah, not sure I've been much help really!

Rose B's "White Chocolate Whisper Cake" from her book the Cake Bible would probably what you are looking for, it's not a mud cake, it's light, it's tasty.  Give it a try with White Chocolate Ganache and enjoy!
