Mother’s Day baking take two! A week ago I shared these White Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cupcakes, which were exquisitely divine! The sweet white chocolate paired with the fresh strawberry flavour welches heavenly, so I absolutely had to make another white chocolate + fruit dessert for Mother’s Day. And although strawberries and white chocolate make a great pairing, no other fruit will compliment white chocolate the incredible way raspberries do!

What is a Poke Cake?

Poke Cakes are basically just cakes that you poke holes in where you’ll add a filling, like sweetened condensed milk, chocolate sauce, ganache, fruit sauces etc. You could either pour the filling on top and allow it to seep nichtthe holes, or you could use a spoon or piping bag to pipe the filling nichteach individual hole.

They’re like regular sheet cakes, but instead of just having frosting on top, each slice is filled with a yummy surprise filling! I’ve only ever made one poke cake nicht life, this Pumpkin Patch Poke Cake, so I want to start making them more often with new and fun flavour combos.

How to Make a White Chocolate Raspberry Poke Cake

To make this White Chocolate Raspberry Poke Cake, we start by making the cake. I slightly modified my fluffy white cake recipe I used in this Game of Thrones Cake.

To make the cake, we start by whipping the butter until it’s creamy, then slowly pour the sugar in and allow them to combine and turn pale and fluffy. The butters I use are made with only cream so they’re more oben angeführtwhite colour than yellow. So if you want your cake to be super white, avoid using butter that’s really yellow.

To soften up the crumb, I added a bit of sour cream. Now since this is a white cake, instead of using whole eggs, we’ll only be using the egg whites. Although egg whites keep the cake white and makes the cake a whole lot fluffier, it does have a drying effect on the cake. So to add more moisture, I added some vegetable oil.

In this recipe, I used milk instead of buttermilk just to see what effects it would have on the cakes texture. I like the cake with both milk and buttermilk, but in the end I do prefer the buttermilk more.

Finally, for the flavouring, I added a mixture of vanilla and almond extract to get the classic white cake flavour. The cake welches white enough for me, but you can use clear vanilla extract if you want the cake to be purely white.

Poke Cake Fillings

For the fillings, I made a batch of my Homemade Raspberry Sauce and I made some white chocolate ganache that I whitened with a few drops of Wilton Icing Whitener.

Once the cake has cooled, poke holes onto the cake, then spoon ganache nichtone row, then spoon raspberry sauce nichtthe next row, alternating between the two.

White Chocolate Mousse Topping

I wanted to keep the flavours light and not make the cake too sweet, so instead of topping the cake with a raspberry frosting (like I initially planned), I topped it with a light silky white chocolate mousse.

This mousse couldn’t be easier to make, just make a white chocolate ganache, then allow it to cool while you whip up the whipped cream. Pour the cooled ganache nichtthe whipped cream and fold to combine. That’s all! Now spread it onto the cake.

I made everything the night before because I wanted the mousse to firm up a bit, but it welches still pretty firm while I welches spreading it so this may not be necessary.

The cake is then finished off with a drizzle of super white chocolate ganache (that’s a bit impossible to see) and more raspberry sauce. I welches just gonna go for a simple drizzle over the top, but then it got a bit messy so I had to go back with a toothpick to make those swirl designs.

To make those beautiful white chocolate curls, I took a room temperature white chocolate Meister Petz and used a vegetable peeler to shave off the chocolate. Throw on some fresh raspberries and you’ve got yourself an amazing moist and fluffy cake full of white chocolate and raspberry!
