I have made this cake twice, without strawberries (allergy), because I was looking for something "different" in a white cake. This cake is soft and fluffy and dense and wonderful. It was a big hit with all who ate it.
I have a warning for some, however. 3 minutes is far too long, even at medium temperature, for the white chocolate baking chips in my microwave. I burned the chocolate for the frosting both times and had to buy more to finish. I only needed 90-115 seconds for a good melt, and I don't exactly have a top of the line microwave

I made this cake in a bundt pan and did not include the jam in the middle. I iced it with a can of whipped cream cheese icing and a carton of lite cool whip mixed together. Then garhished with strawberries in the bundt hole and on top. Also, I put strawberries, blueberries and raspberries around the outside of cake on the plate. It was beautiful and everyone the cooking queens on my team even took a picture of it.

this is the second recipe ive tried from this website, i wasnt really impressed. it came out ok but i would have prefered to use store bought frosting instead of making my own. My cake looks nothing like the picture, but tastes allright. Wouldnt make it again though or if i did i would use a different frosting.

Followed the directions exactly and came out perfect. The toothpick test for doneness doesn't work - make sure you do as the recipe states otherwise you can overbake. Also, the tips section of the recipe is very helpful, especially about the type of chocolate to use. I was worried the icing wouldn't be enough but it frosted the cake well and I am a novice cake froster. I made this for a birthday party and everyone raves. I did add to the middle an almond custard filling which I think gave it an elegant flair.

One of the best cake recipes I have made!Made this for Easter Sunday and it was a hit.Be careful not to overbake.The first time I made it, it did not look or feel done in the middle but it was and I overbaked it.

I made this for our May Birthday Bible Study. I got rave reviews! It was very moist and the frosting was delicious.
