Today, I’m going to share my first attempt to make a Raspberry White Chocolate Naked Cake for a friend’s birthday. I was inspired by different recipes on the blog La Popotte de Manue
Raspberry White Chocolate Naked Cake : the recipe
For the sponge cake :
120g of sugar (I used muscovado sugar)
120g sifted flour with 1 teaspoon of baking powder
The pulp of a vanilla bean
For the whipped ganache :
200 g of white chocolate
40 cl of 30% fat liquid cream
For the raspberry purée :
250g raspberries (frozen)
50g of sugar
2 tablespoons water
Some fresh raspberries for decoration
Preparation of the whipped ganache
The day before, place the chopped white chocolate in a large bowl. Boil the liquid cream, pour half on the white chocolate, whisk and add the other half. Mix well, the mixture should be perfectly smooth. Reserve in the fridge until the next day.
Place your robot whip and a bowl in the freezer for the next day.
Preparation of raspberry purée
In a saucepan, put raspberries, sugar and water and bring to a boil. Crush the raspberries at the end of cooking. Reserve.
Preparation of the sponge cake
Preheat the oven to 160°C.
Put the vanilla pulp in the sugar, mix with your fingertips.
Separate the whites from the yolks, assemble the whites using your robot with the whisk. When they are well sparkling add the vanilla sugar spoon after spoon. Whisk in yolks and mix quickly. Finish with the flour, always with a whisk and without over-emphasizing the mixture. Separate the device in half and pour it into the buttered and floured molds.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, the sponge cake should be lightly browned.
Cool and cut the sponge cake in half.
Put the ganache in the salad bowl that was in the freezer. Whip the preparation for the ganache with the electric whisk, as for a whipped cream. When the ganache is frothy and firm, stop.
Place the first disc of sponge cake on the serving platter, cover with raspberry coulis, put on top of the ganache. Repeat for all the discs.
Pour remaining ganache onto cake and decorate with some raspberries.
Keep cool before serving.
