Christmas Dream Cake

Maybe it’s the two Christmas tree lighting ceremonies I’ve attended, or maybe it’s all the snow on the ground but boy oh boy is it beginning to look a lot like Christmas. And you know what that means – time to get some Holiday baking done!

This moist cake was so delicious that I decided to share it up.  A real White Christmas Dream Cake!

This cake serves 12-15 persons!

You need:

Cake

  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 6 ounces (200 g) white chocolate, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup walnuts

Filling

  • ½ cup quince or apricot jelly/jam
  • ¼ cup rum

Frosting

  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons rum
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 ounces (120 g) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 ounces (60 g) white chocolate flakes for topping, quantity to taste

Procedure:

  1. Place walnuts in a baking dish and roast them at 180°C for about 10 minutes, remove before they begin to turn dark! Remove from the oven and don’t switch off the oven.
  2. Combine in a pot butter and water. Bring to boil and add the chopped white chocolate.
  3. Remove from heat and stir until combined.
  4. Add yogurt, egg and vanilla. Stir until combined.
  5. In another bowl combine flour, sugar and sifted baking powder.
  6. Add dry mixture to the wet mixture and combine using the hand blender.
  7. Chop roughly the walnuts and fold under the batter.
  8. Grease and dust with flour a baking mold of 10 inch (26-28 cm works well).
  9. Pour the batter and bake in the preheated oven for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  10. Cool down completely on a grid before removing from the mold.
  11. In a small bowl combine jelly/jam with the rum. I used a fork. Set aside.
  12. For the frosting combine the powdered sugar in a bowl, add rum and vanilla. Stir. Gradually add cream cheese until the desired consistence is reached. Set aside.
  13. Cut the cake into two layers.
  14. Spread the jam mixture over the bottom layer. Top with the second layer.
  15. Spread the frosting over the top of the cake and the walls.
  16. Drop chocolate flakes over the frosting.
