White Chocolate Raspberry Cake
White Chocolate Raspberry Cake featuring sweet raspberry filling and delicious white chocolate cake. This pretty cake is awesome for any occasion, but especially perfect for a valentines date. Just try to stop at once slice. These are the perfect flavor combination cause they pair it with white chocolate cream cheese frosting and fresh raspberry garnishes for a full raspberry and white chocolate effect. The combination of sweet and creamy with the tartness of the raspberries make this cake one remember.
It’s totally swoon-worthy obviously, for taking that first bite of your gorgeously filled and frosted cake. I’m thinking this would be a pretty great valentine’s day cake because of the bright pop of red.
Tips for making this White Chocolate Cake with Raspberries
- The ratio of sugar in this recipe is high due to the addition of white chocolate. You can reduce the sugar to 11/2 cups instead.
- Try to use the best quality white chocolate you can find. White chocolate chips will do, but the flavor will be better with good quality white chocolate.
- If you don’t like raspberries, this white chocolate cake would be just as delicious with blueberries, blackberries, or strawberries.
- Ensure your cake layers bake up nicely and flat.
This truly is a delicious flavor combination, and the fresh berries make it so perfect for valentines.
