Another day, another request...this time for a white chocolate bundt cake. And believe it or not, this is something quite difficult to find a recipe for...most recipes I did find had white chocolate mixed with milk chocolate. However my request was for a pure white chocolate cake. So I found one recipe and did some tinkering with it. The result was a very delicious moist cake. It tasted like old-fashioned goodness. Reminded me of sara lee type pound cakes. However, I did have a moment of panic when I inserted my cake tester because it seemed like a part of it was hollow. When I eventually for it out of the tin, there was indeed a small section of the cake that had a hollow section at the bottom. I'm not entirely sure why this happened. I must admit that I do find baking with white chocolate quite unpredictable. It's definitely a very different substance to milk or dark chocolate. This is also why I didn't ice it, I was worried that it was a cake disaster and hollow all round. Thankfully though it was incredibly delicious, an I think it might have been the white chocolate chips put in layers in the cake that somehow caused the hollowness. I definitely will try this again and aim to get it right visually. Taste-wise though it was really perfect!
