  • Chop four squares of the white chocolate and melted 4 of the others. Set aside.

  • In a mixing bowl, cream butter and 2 cups of the sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in extracts and the melted white chocolate.

  • Combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; add to the creamed mixture alternately with the sour cream. Beat just until combined.

  • Pour 1/3 of the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle with 1/2 of the chopped white chocolate. Repeat. Pour remaining batter on top.

  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 to 60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Melt chocolate in the top of two double boilers or in bowls in the microwave. Stir until smooth. Set aside to cool.

  • Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes then remove from pan and let cool on a wire rack completely. Once cool place cake on a serving dish and drizzle with melted white and semisweet chocolate. Garnish with strawberries, if desired.

I wanted to make a pound cake that was different. This seemed to be the perfect one white chocolate in a cake? Mmmmmm! The recipe was easy to follow and the cake tasted good. There are a few things that I didn't like about the cake. The crust of the cake was too hard. I think the sugar that is added in the pan before baking may have had something to do with it. Also the chocolate in the middle didn't melt well for me it left a ring around the cake and some came out on the sides of the cake which made a mess of the pan. I didn't drizzle the chocolate on the top as suggested I just skipped it. I think the next time I make it I will mix all of the chocolate in with the mix and not sprinkle some in the middle as suggested. Otherwise it was fantastic! I would definately make it again with a few modifications. Read More

I don't see what all the rave reviews are about. I made this cake for my mother in law's birthday as she is a white chocolate lover. But no one finished their slice--not even the kids--who would generally eat any kind of cake. We all found it to be a little dry and not very tasty even though I followed the recipe exactly. Needs something. Read More

WE all loved this cake! It was very delish! Instead of drizzling the top with white choc. I served the cake with a simple raspberry sauce (1/2c seedless raspberry preserves 1 tsp butter 1/8 tsp almond extract microwave till warm and liquidy) and over the course of 4 days we polished it off!:) Read More

Made this for my mother's 95th birthday celebration and it was a hit. I love the crust it makes the flavor is just delicious with that hint of almond and the white chocolate gives it an elegant touch. Instead of chopping I melted the white chocolate to mix in with the other ingredients and I only used white chocolate on top. It was simple but perfect. Read More

I've made this recipe several times (often for teacher luncheons at my sons' schools) and it's terrific. You could use white chocolate chips in place of the chopped white chocolate to sprinkle in the middle of the cake. Read More

I tried this recipe for Thanksgiving and it was WONDERFUL! One suggestion is that you chop the white chocolate that is to be sprinkled in the cake into really thin pieces...almost like shavings. It makes it easier for the chocolate to melt. This cake was very moist and everyone loved it! Read More

This is a very easy recipe to make. I have made it several times as is without changing with one exception the last time I made it. I did not have a enough white chocolate on hand so I searched through the pantry and all I had was white chocolate truffle candy so I melted that in the microwave and drizzled over the top with the milk chocolate and WOW it was an even bigger hit. This cake does not last very long anywhere I take it. Read More

Hey!!! This recipe is awesome!!! I took it to shcool for a contest and won!!! Then i went to other contest and won with this cake!!! It is awesome!!! The only thing thats wierd is that the cake does not turn out to be chocolate like it shows in the pic. It turns out yellow but my whole class loved it so much they did not care if it wasn't chocolate because there was so much white chocolate and dark chocolate drizzled on top that it was still good!!! SO GOOD!!!I also changed the recipe a little...(See you dont have to put in almond extract even tho the recipe calls for it. I made one cake with it and one without and they tasted the same. It dosn't really make a difference.) Anyway this recipe is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
