White Chocolate Cake

This is a super quick, (almost one bowl) type of cake.  You can swap the white chocolate for dark if you prefer.

But as is, with this divine white chocolate it creates a very light cake.  There is vegan white chocolate available (although hard to come by) but you can use cacao butter as a great substitute.  Absolutely divine!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use a different type of non-dairy milk instead of soy milk in this white chocolate cake recipe?

Yes, you can use other non-dairy milk options like almond milk, oat milk, coconut milk, or any milk alternative that suits your dietary preferences or allergies.
