I am not normally a fan of white chocolate cakes but this recipe converted me. Decorate with your favourite chocolate icing.
Omg , this cake was amazing , really easy to bake and the taste well what can I say ..... Go and bake it to find out . I left out the pecans and the coconut and filled it with fresh cream and strawberries ... New family favorite .. - 09 Aug 2014
Flavor this gets a 5 star, recipe it's a three star, so I will give it a four. There were two major recipe problems - one is that the ingredient list calls for chopped chocoloate, then the recipe calls for melted chocolate with no step for melting. The second problem was with the sifting instructions. It calls for 2.5 C of sifted cake flour, but then the directions tell you to sift the flour with the baking soda and salt. For recipe semantics this was hard - do I sift once, measure and then sift again with other ingredients or did it really intend for 2.5 C flour, sifted. For the wet ingredients I decided that 2.5 C flour was appropropriate, so I sifted after measuring, but after eating I decided that I should have done a double sift, which would have resulted in a lighter cake with more rise to it. The comma was truly important here and I wonder if many of the complaints about the denseness could have alleviated with some clearer sifting direction. Anyway - the tast was wonderful - I ended up with little slivers of the white chocolate (since I didn't pre-melt). I will make again. - 11 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is well worth the effort. I got lots of compliments, and loved how light it was. It's a great alternative to a heavier dark chocolate version. I used cream cheese frosting in the middle, and frosted the rest with a traditional german chocolate frosting. - 06 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
