White Chocolate and Raspberry Sponge Cake

4.3 stars from 3 ratings of White Chocolate and Raspberry Sponge Cake

This is a twist on a classic sponge cake. When cooked slowly the white chocolate melts into the mixture and provides a delicately flavoured sponge. The raspberry flakes add a lovely combination making this sponge very truly delicious.

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 50 min
Ready in: 1 hour 20 min
Yields: 1 x 23cm Sponge Cake

Ingredients

  • 225g Unsalted Butter
  • 225g Caster Sugar
  • 4 Large Free Range Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 20g Dried Raspberry Flakes
  • 75g White Chocolate, Finely Chopped
  1. Preheat the oven to 180oC/350oF/Gas Mark 4
  2. Ensure the butter is soft and beat with a wooden spoon or electric whisk in a large mixing bowl until smooth and creamy
  3. Gradually add the sugar beating all the time. Continue until the mixture becomes white and fluffy in texture
  4. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl with the vanilla extract. Add this slowly to the creamed butter and sugar stirring continuously
  5. Sift in the flour into the mixture beating continuously. Try to do this as lightly as possible as to not knock the air out of the mixture
  6. Add the chopped white chocolate and raspberry flakes until thoroughly combined
  7. Add the mixture to a large greased cake tin (approximately 23 cm) and spread the mixture evenly around the tin
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes or until the sponge is well risen and golden
  9. Remove from the oven and cool
  10. When slightly cooled remove from the cake tin and leave to fully cool on a wire rack
  11. This can either be eaten straight away or decorated appropriately. A good dusting of icing sugar is also acceptable
