Beautiful and delicious, this raspberry, rose and white chocolate cake is perfect as a tea time treat but also, more importantly, makes the perfect base for a celebration cake. A perfect substitute for the standard Madeira, lasts for a week, covered, in the fridge and is wonderfully moist, with a hint of the white chocolate and raspberry!

I’ve decorated this in a variety of ways, with:

– pure white chocolate with rose geranium pure essential oil, which is naturally hard when it hardens, so can be a bit tricky to cut ( a hot knife does the trick). This is what’s given in the recipe.

– white chocolate ganache with a teaspoon or two of rose water or as above, too rich for my taste

– white chocolate buttercream

– vanilla buttercream

– raspberry buttercream

So far! They’ve all been gorgeous, my favourite is perhaps, white chocolate & raspberry buttercream.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 250 g caster sugar
  • 200 g butter
  • 200 g white chocolate
  • 100 ml single cream
  • 3 tbsp raspberry coulis
  • 300 g self raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste or extract
  • 1 tsp rose water
  • Raspberry jam for filling

White Chocolate Buttercream

  • 120 g butter
  • 150 g white chocolate good quality, with no vanilla specks
  • 400 g icing powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp raspberry coulis

Pure White Chocolate Covering

  • 300 g good quality white chocolate
  • 1 drop rose geranium pure essential

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 160˚C/320F˚ and line & grease an 8″ baking tin as required.
  • Sift the flour & baking powder together & set aside.
  • Place chocolate and cream in a roomy  bowl and microwave on medium heat in 30 second bursts until the chocolate is almost melted, then stir until it’s all melted.
  • Beat the butter & sugar until light and creamy.
  • Add egg, one at a time, beating well between additions. If you’re worried about curdling, at a tbsp of flour with each egg.
  • Add the vanilla, rose water & chocolate mix & fold in gently, if using a tabletop mixer, at its lowest speed.
  • Add the flour, again, fold in gently.
  • Finally, add the raspberry coulis, again, fold in gently, don’t worry about tiny streaks.
  • Pour into prepared tin & bake for about 45-60 minutes. I know that’s a huge range, really does depend on your oven.
  • When done, leave it to cool completely before icing. Removing it from its tin will speed this up.
  • Halve the cake and fill with raspberry jam.

White Chocolate Buttercream

  • Melt the chocolate in a bowl in the microwave in 30 second spurts, stirring each time. Leave to cool for a few minutes.
  • While waiting for the chocolate to cool, beat the butter and sugar as above.
  • Add the melted chocolate.
  • Add raspberry coulis and stir gently to mix. Don’t worry about streaks.

Pure White Chocolate Covering

  • Melt chocolate on medium power in a microwave at 30 second burst until melted.
  • Add the drop of oil, stir.
  • Cool slightly before using
