A few weeks ago, I was asked to create a show stopper cake for an event I was to attend. I needed a cake recipe that would give me a WOW factor result. Of all my experimental cake flavors, one of the most loved has got to be my mango drizzle cupcakes. Coming close in second place is my white chocolate mud cake. I decided to combine these flavors, and add a bit of coconut, and came up with the following recipe.
I cannot begin to tell you how delicious this cake tasted. Its just something you will have to try making and tasting yourself 🙂
Nazzy Bakers White Chocolate, Mango and Coconut Mud Cake:
300g White Chocolate buttons
200g salted butter
1 cup of milk
¾ cup caster sugar
2 large eggs lightly beaten
2/3 cup self-raising flour
1 cup plain flour
½ cup of desiccated coconut / 1tsp coconut essence
1 kg Frozen Mango cubes
½ cup sugar
½ cup water
675g white chocolate buttons
- Ganache: Heat the cream in the microwave for 1 minute, add the chocolate buttons and heat in short bursts until the chocolate and cream are well combined. Leave the ganache to cool.
- Filling: Add Mango, sugar and water to a saucepan, and cook until the water evaporates. Blitz the mango mixture to a smooth thick mixture.
- Cake: Pre-heat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius. Grease and line cake pan with cake release spray and baking paper. Place chocolate, butter, milk and sugar into a saucepan and stir on low heat continuously until well combined and smooth. Allow the mixture to cool. When cooled, add the coconut essence and eggs and stir until combined. Sift the flours into a large bowl, and then add the chocolate mixture in, one cup at a time, mixing well between additions. Once all the ingredients are combined and mixed well, pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake until cooked. Allow the cake to cool.
- Assembly: Slice the cake in half, and pipe a border around the edge of the cake with ganache. Fill the center with the mango filling. Stack the next layer of cake on top. Cover the sides and top of the cake with a layer of ganache, and smooth it with a palette knife if you wish to cover the cake with fondant.
