For the White Chocolate Cake
- Unsalted butter, softened – ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons
- Caster sugar – ¾ cup
- Egg yolks – 3
- Vanilla extract – 1 teaspoon
- Cake flour – 1.5 cups
- Baking powder – 1.5 teaspoons
- Salt – ¼ teaspoon
- Milk – ½ cup + 2 tablespoons
- White chocolate chips – ½ cup
Put the chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl. In a sauce pan bring the water to a simmer. Now place the bowl on top of the pan. Make sure the water is low enough so it doesn’t touch the bowl when you place on top of the pan. Gently and constantly stir the chocolate till the chocolate has completely melted. Set aside to cool completely.
Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease two 6 inches round cake tins and line the base with a baking sheet. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and set aside.
In a mixing bowl cream the butter, sugar and essence with electric mixer till light and fluffy. Reduce the speed to Medium low and add the egg yolks and melted white chocolate.
Gradually add the flour alternating with milk. Mix well till everything is well combined. Make sure not to over beat.
Spread the mixture into the prepared cake tins and bake for 20-25 minutes or till the toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the cake.

- Heavy whipping cream – 4 tablespoons
- Icing sugar – 4-5 cups
- Unsalted butter – 225 grams
- Salt – ¼ teaspoon

Hey I wanted to know if you have another recipe for this same cake but for a bigger size cake?
Hi Dezerae, sorry this is the size I have for this cake. You might want to double the recipe.
Beautiful. Love the strawberries on top. How do you keep them from bleeding on the cake after washing them?
