I expected this white chocolate cake to be extremely sweet but it wasn’t. It was however super moist and very moreish and I urge you to make it yourself.
Head straight on to the Recipe For White Chocolate Cake ♥
A couple of weeks ago Dave suggested I increase the pressure in my tyres. I do not check them regularly enough and the tyre wear indicated they were too low. As I was due to put petrol into my car in a few days time I left it until then. When I asked the petrol attendant to look at my tyre pressure he told me that the machine at the pump was not working. I could move my car to another air compressor and I nearly said no. But he convinced me it would take no time at all and so I did so. They have new machines and I could see the starting pressure and for three of my tyres it was only a little bit under what it should have been. But, the one tyre was flat.

Thinking I just had a slow puncture I was going to leave and worry about the tyre the following day. But the very convincing gentleman told me it would take no time at all to check if I had a puncture. And I am so glad he did, as I had two nails in my tyre. He and another young man changed the wheel for me and I went on my way. As I was going on a long road trip I was most grateful for his insistence as I would have been stuck on the side of the road having to do the hard work myself. I thought that an instant tip would be better for them, even if unexpected. It might have been better to have some of this white chocolate cake to give them. It was so good and I am sure would have been well received. Do you know how to change a wheel?

I wouldn’t know how to change a wheel – which frustrates me to be honest!
This looks amazing, Tandy. I love white chocolate! Delicious 🙂
It is a vital life skill in my opinion 🙂
Your White Chocolate Cake With Chocolate Chunks looks yumo. A perfect match for afternoon coffee. Having changed many flats in my day, technically I still know how but don’t wish to test my skill.
I would also rather not test the skill 🙂
The cake looks really yummy even though I’m not into cake these days. No, I would have no clue how to change a wheel. 😯
Hopefully you never have to find out the hard way 😉
Will definitely try this after lent.. Today I made an orange curd, your idea but just used my lemon curd recipe and used oranges instead.. It certainly is delicious.. 😉
I am so pleased to read that! Enjoy 🙂
This white cake looks fabulous Tandy! Moist, too. My cake is always so dry so I don’t attempt it often. I love this as an Easter cake. I wonder if I could put coconut on the top? And I do so love the way you spell “tyre” =)
I am sure it will be perfect with some coconut on top 🙂
Oooh, TAndy, you really must check things like tyres on your car. It is so dangerous to break down in South Africa. Fabulous cake recipe.
I was just lucky that I got the puncture between the office and the petrol station 🙂
This looks delicious! I’ve become a big white chocolate fan in recent years so I know I’d enjoy this cake a lot!
Hope you try it Amy 🙂
We recently found a nail in our tyre too! It’s annoying but like you, we are just glad we got it fixed. The texture of this cake looks lovely!
I am glad you were not stranded!
I ‘m ashamed to say that don’t know how to change a tyre, luckily I have road service for my car!
The texture looks great and I love the sound of the cake.
The best white chocolate cake I’ve tasted (so far) was my wedding cake…a white chocolate mud cake. I have tried to recreate but haven’t got close ….so looking forward to your white chocolate cake.
Your wedding cake sounds divine!
