So… White Chocolate and Raspberry… it’s been a while. The last time I posted a White Chocolate and Raspberry related recipe was 10 months ago, and quite frankly… that’s far too long. It’s one of the best marriages of flavours in the world. 

The sweetness of White Chocolate with the freshness and sharpness of Raspberry makes such a wonderful combination that I just can’t avoid.

I’ve done several recipes with it already, including my White Chocolate & Raspberry Rolls, my White Chocolate & Raspberry Cheesecake and also my White Chocolate & Raspberry Blondies just to name a few!

Either way, it was time to post another recipe. I thought I would go all out, and do a recipe that has been requested over and over for the longest time… this beauty. My White Chocolate Raspberry Loaf Cake. Oh heyyyyy huns, it’s heaven time. 

This beauty is a marriage of various different ideas. I always think loaf tin cakes are similar to bundt tins in a way, as they take an age to bake, but are so easy to decorate! This beauty takes an hour to bake in the oven, and it’s not even that big in size! 

I used the Tala 2lb loaf tin for this, as I just love it. It’s the perfect tin for loaf cakes, for bread, and even for ice creams! I utterly love it. It’s heavenly. And.. bonus.. it can go in the dishwasher which is always good in my eyes!

For reference, the Loaf Tin I have used is 24.4 x 14.4 x 6.9 cm in size. I’ve noticed when shopping that some ‘2lb loaf tins’ are TINY and I have no idea how they’re all meant to the same size. 

For this cake, I used fresh raspberries, as I just love to bake with them. Also, it’s summer, so they’re in peak season which means they taste amazing! You can try frozen raspberries, but they can often make the cake take a little longer to bake! 

The cake mix itself is just a regular basic cake sponge. It’s the best kinda sponge to use, and why mess with what isn’t broken?! Add in the raspberries, and white chocolate and boom you’re done. It’s so easy and so delicious! 

For decoration, you can do pretty much anything you want. I went for a white chocolate buttercream because I wanted a swirling/ribbon effect on the top with the buttercream. I used a medium leaf tip to get the effect, and I am obsessed! 

For the decoration, I just used some fresh raspberries, some freeze-dried raspberries, and some mini white chocolate chips. I just adore how the freeze-dried raspberries look on all my bakes, which is why I use them so often! They’re pretttyyyyy. 

You can buy the freeze-dried raspberries online, or in stores such as Waitrose, Lakeland, or Sainsburys! 

Anyway, this recipe has been very sought after for a very long time, so I hope it’s a hit for you guys. The latest recipe that I posted that was SO unbelievably requested was my Bakewell Blondies, and they went a little crazy, so ENJOYYYY! x

Recipe Notes
  • I recommend using this 2lb Loaf Tin
  • I use these Freeze-Dried Raspberries!
  • Use a cake skewer to see if it's done - it should come out clean. 
  • You can store this in the fridge due to the fresh fruit in the sponge and on top, but if its a really cold day I would keep it outside the fridge as it could dry out. 
  • If you struggle with chocolate in buttercream, add 1-2tbsp of whole milk to smooth it out, but only do this IF it has split.
  • Sometimes the raspberries can sink... and it's not the end of the world. It happens. You can try coating them in a couple tablespoons of flour, if you wish. 
  • Loaf cakes can sometimes take slightly longer to bake in some ovens (if the oven temp is off) as they act similarly to bundt cakes!
  • If you find your cake is a little greasy, it's most like the chocolate that's melted and started to react during baking - don't worry, you can just pat it off - it won't affect the cake at all, just the outside of it can feel a little greasy.

  1. Hey,

    If preparing this the evening before to take into work the following day, would you propose to do the decoration in the morning to ensure it is still fresh and not solid from the night before?

    Cheers.

  2. Hi Jane,

    This cake is lovely I made it yesterday and it tasted great! However, the cake sponge itself I found was a bit dry/clumped together and wasn’t that wet/moist, as I’ve only ever baked 2 cakes in my life. How do I counter this problem, assuming I’m doing something wrong during mixing all the ingredients together? Or cooking it for too long perhaps? Love to hear back from you.

    Thanks.

    1. Hiya! If it’s dry, it is just over baked! Best thing to do is to get an oven thermometer to make sure your oven is the correct temp, make sure you have your oven on the correct setting, and keep an eye on the bake a little earlier on! x

    Made this last week as dessert for a lunch bbq. Some leftovers went into my husband’s work. I’m now making another one tomorrow for one of his colleague’s birthdays! They loved it!! I don’t eat cake so I can’t comment, but I always get compliments whenever I do one of your recipes!
    I used frozen raspberries as I live in Dubai and they are soooooo expensive to buy fresh…. obviously I use fresh on the top!

  4. Hi Jane,
    Could I make this into a layered cake (8”)? Also if I wanted to make it gluten free would I just change the flour?
    Thanks, Nadia

  5. Hi Jane,

    I am wondering if this would work with the stork block (I need to make the recipe dairy free). Could I use this for the icing too? I can get dairy free white chocolate too.

    Thanks,

    Sarah

    1. Hiya! The sponge should work the same with the stork block, just probably make sure to coat your raspberries in flour just in case – and the frosting should work too, but it will be softer so harder to pipe! x

    Made this lovely cake a few weeks ago, please don’t let the negative comments put you off making this as it is such a yummy and easy cake to bake! I will be making it again tomorrow for my mums birthday 🍰 x

    Hi Jane, this looks amazing!
    I only have a 1lb loaf tin so assume I would just halve the ingredients, but do you know roughly how long I should cook it for? Many thanks 😊

    1. I’m not 100% sure on the time I’m afraid! I would say try and have a look at 30 minutes or so?! And one of my readers made this into two 1lb tins so yes I would assume halving is correct!

    1. That means it probably wasn’t finished baking – next time give it more time in the oven! A good tip – when you think the cake is done, make sure to carefully ‘listen’ to the cake, if it’s making lots of bubbly sounds, it’s not finished baking.

    Hi,
    I made this cake tonight & I found it came out really greasy from the tin & lining paper. I used the correct amount of ingredients & it was cooked through. I’ll have to see what it’s like once cooled down, decorated and sliced.

    1. How small was your chocolate? Sometimes if it’s too small and depending on brand it can melt into the cake and make it a little greasy on the outer, but it won’t affect the taste of the cake!

  9. Hi Jane, I think your creations are always beautiful and inspirational. I wanted to ask, could I use strawberries in this recipe instead? I accidentally picked up the freeze dried strawberries instead so I thought I’d ask? Thank you! Cannot wait to attempt this! Lots of love

    1. The freeze dried strawberries will still be perfectly okay to use with the raspberries in the sponge, I often use freeze dried strawberries on top – I personally find things with strawberries in can take a little longer to bake, but definitely give it a go! (I have not tried it in a loaf cake though!)

  10. The recipe looks good, but I have never seen so many pictures of the baked product.
    Way too many, especially since you only used a couple of different shots over and over again.

  11. your recipes are so interesting, but the amount of each item in recipe is hard for me to translate to cups, teaspoons, tablespoons, etc.
    I think I will stop reading your recipes. I did try to figure amounts and think I did a pretty good job, but a challenge. Thanks

  12. Thank you for posting this Can’t wait to bake it. Jane do I chop the white chocolate to go in the cake mix, Or use chocolate chips?

  13. This White Chocolate and Raspberry Loaf cake looks delicious. I have a number of cakes to make for next weekend this has just been added to the list. Do you think I could make this weekend and freeze Undecorated ?
