White Chocolate Cake Recipe

This is a very dense, moist and delicious white chocolate cake – one of my favourites and perfect for Chocolate Week!


For the cake:
310g plain flour
5g baking soda
2g baking powder
3g salt
170g white chocolate, chopped
120ml hot water
225g butter, softened
300g caster sugar
3 eggs
235ml buttermilk

For the icing:
200g white chocolate, chopped
20g plain flour
235ml milk
225g butter, softened
200g caster sugar
5ml vanilla extract


1. Preheat the oven to 350F/175C/Gas Mark 4.
2. Grease two 9inch round cake tins.
3. In a bowl sieve together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and the salt.
4. In a small pan mix together the white chocolate and hot water over a low heat until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth, leave to cool to room temperature.
5. In a bowl mix together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
6. Add eggs one at a time beating well.
7. Stir in the flour mixture and buttermilk alternately.
8. Mix in the melted chocolate.
9. Put the cake batter into the cake tins and bake for approximately 30 minutes.
10. Use a fork to see if the cake is cooked, if it comes out clean then it’s ready, if it has some batter on it, cook it for a little longer.
11. When cooked take out of the tins and cool on a wire rack.
12. For the icing, in a pan, add the chocolate, flour and milk and melt over a medium heat, stirring constantly, until it is thick and creamy. Allow to cool completely.
13. In a bowl mix together the butter, sugar and vanilla extract until light and fluffy.
14. Mix in the white chocolate mixture and beat until it’s thick and creamy.
15. Spread between the two layers of cake and over the top and sides of the cake.
