White Chocolate Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

Dense, yet tender, pound cake flavored with white chocolate in the batter and then studded with white chocolate chips, finished off with a drizzle of semi sweet chocolate.

Welcome to this month's edition of Bundt Bakers.......

This month's edition of Bundt Bakers is being hosted by Nichole of Cookaholic Wife.  Nichole chose the theme "White" bundts.

I had originally thought I would try an Angel Food Cake in a bundt pan.  Some have tried this with success and others have had miserable failures.  The good thing about cake failures is that you can always make trifle.

But we are in the middle of Pumpkin Week here followed immediately by Apple Week and I didn't have any extra time to play in the kitchen.  I almost didn't participate at all this month because of being in the midst of these events.  I hate missing Bundt Bakers though.  It is one of my favorite groups each month, filled with friendly, supportive members.

Then, as luck would have it, Frank scheduled a CPL class last Saturday.  When Frank gives classes, I provide breakfast and lunch for the students.  I hadn't made a dessert yet and then I remembered about this event.

I decided, instead of Angel Cake, to go with a Pound Cake.  Pound Cakes are perfect in Bundt Form.  Technically, Pound Cakes are yellow and not white.  The difference between yellow cakes and white cakes?  Egg yolks.  That's it....the yolks lend the cake it's yellow color.

In an effort to stay true to the theme, I flavored my batter with melted white chocolate chips and then sprinkled more white chocolate in the middle of the batter.

I baked this on Friday afternoon before we had to leave to watch Marissa cheer at the High School football game.

It baked up beautiful and high....I left it to cool while we went to the game.  The following morning, Marissa needed to be to a cheer fundraiser at 8 am and the class was beginning at 8:30 am.  Instead of making a frosting or glaze for this cake I simply melted some semisweet chocolate chips and poured it on as I was running out the door.

Before I share my recipe, that I adapted from Taste of Home, let's see what White Bundts the others created for us today.

White Chocolate Bundt Cake

prep time: 20 minscook time: 1 hourtotal time: 1 hours and 20 mins
Dense, yet tender, pound cake flavored with white chocolate in the batter and then studded with white chocolate chips, finished off with a drizzle of semi sweet chocolate.


1 c. white chocolate chips, divided
2 sticks butter, room temperature
2 c. sugar
5 eggs
2 t. vanilla
1/2 t. almond extract
3 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
pinch of salt
1 c. sour cream
3/4 c. semisweet chocolate chips, melted


Melt 1/2 cup of the white chocolate chips and set aside.

In large bowl of stand mixer, fitted with paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in the eggs one at a time.   Stir in the melted white chocolate, vanilla and almond extract.

Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add the dry ingredients, alternately with the sour cream, in three additions on low speed.  When incorporated adjust speed and mix until combined.

Pour about a third of the batter into a bundt pan that has been treated with baking spray.  Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips over the batter and then pour remaining batter into the pan.

Bake in a preheated 350* oven for about an hour, until a skewer inserted removes cleanly.

Let cool, in pan, on a wire rack for 15 minutes before turning the cake onto the rack to cool completely.

When cake is completely cool, drizzle with melted semisweet chocolate and serve.
