moist and fluffy vanilla cake filled with creamy white chocolate buttercream and topped with festive pomegranate seeds.
It is Monday so let's have cake! A slice of white chocolate pomegranate vanilla cake to be exact. This baby is simply festive and elegant.
This holiday season is my first year of baking and blogging and in the next two weeks, I will be sharing some of my favorite holiday recipes with you. I have some classic recipes I always make for our holiday gatherings. I think there might be trouble if I didn't make certain things, including my white cake with white chocolate frosting.
I make this vanilla white cake with white chocolate frosting every year and usually decorate it with blue and snowflakes (using chocolate molds) for a wintry cake. However this year, I deviated a little on my decor (not recipe) and decided to leave the cake naked and add some lovely pop of color to give it a different festive decoration.
Seriously, I am loving pomegranates these days. After these vanilla pomegranate oatmeal cookies, I wanted to enjoy these crunchies in some more baked goods. Oh don't get me wrong, I discovered they are amazing in Greek yogurt as well (Thanks Julie for that!) but my new favorite combination is with white chocolate.
This white chocolate pomegranate vanilla cake recipe is a classic that you should have in your repertoire. It's a moist and fluffy white vanilla cake. I used my favorite gourmet pure vanilla extract by Lagrima and it gave this cake a great flavor and aroma (you guys I cannot say how much I love using this extract). I filled the cake with a creamy white chocolate swiss meringue buttercream and topped with fresh pomegranate seeds. These two together are perfect and make this cake delicious. But don't take my word for it, you have to try it.
Whether you make this a winter wonderland cake or a festive galore, you will love the combination of white chocolate, vanilla and pomegranates.
