My mom has requested a white chocolate cake for her birthday in a few weeks. Does anyone have a recipe they've made and like? Somewhere I have a recipe for white chocolate cake with nutella frosting I made in pregan days, but I think it would be tricky to veganize. Any recommendations would be most welcome. :)
What country are you in? In the US, Vegan Essentials sells a high quality vegan white chocolate bar, much better than white chocolate chips but also more expensive since it's imported from Europe. Vegan Chocolate
by Fran Costigan contains a recipe for substituting Nutella that looks really good.
Thanks for the tip. I'm in the US and I've got access to some vegan white chocolate chips at a kosher grocery near me, but the bar sounds even better so I'll put in an order. My other concern is that most of the white chocolate cakes recipes I've seen (including the one I used to make with the nutella frosting) use a ton of eggs/egg yolks/egg whites - the old nutella cake I think had 5 egg whites whipped into meringue and folded into the batter. I don't know how (or if it's even possible) to veganize something like that so I'm hoping to find a cake recipe that's already vegan.
Xocolatl, your frosting recipe sounds delish! I may borrow it. Thanks!
