Dreamy White Chocolate & Raspberry Cupcake Recipe 5

These cupcakes have the colour of love filled inside from the fresh raspberry’s (with real chocolate chips running through the cakes too!) and the white chocolate ganache on top is just a taste sensation! I made these last weekend for my family and they were gone in two days πŸ˜‰ I got the ganache recipe from The Great British Bake Off Show Stoppers BookΒ and it tastes amazing! This recipe makes the ganache so it cools thick enough to pipe but it does advise that if you want runny ganache to pour over a cake use 100 ml cream and no butter πŸ™‚ Honestly, you have to try it! Let me know what you think of this bake by adding a comment at the bottom of the page πŸ™‚ p.s. if your looking for more treats for Valentines day check out these delicious ideas!

Dreamy White Chocolate & Raspberry Cupcakes Recipe
Author: Cook Bake Eat
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 11
  • 120g Butter
  • 120g Caster Sugar
  • 2 Medium Eggs
  • 120g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 100g Halved Raspberry's
  • 50g White Chocolate Chips

    For the Ganache

  • 80ml Double Cream
  • 20g Butter
  • 100g White Chocolate (chopped)
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180oc and line your bun tin with cake cases.
  2. Mix together the butter and sugar.
  3. Add one egg and a little flour and mix. Then add the next egg, a little flour and mix.
  4. Once both eggs are mixed in add the rest of the flour and give it all a good stir.
  5. Add the vanilla extract, halved raspberry's and white chocolate chips and give your mixture a final stir.
  6. Divide your mixture in to the bun cases and bake for around 25 mins πŸ™‚ (If your unsure if they are ready just prick with a fork and if the fork comes out clean then they are done!)
  7. Once your cakes are cooked, leave to cool and then lets start the gorgeous ganache!
  8. In a pan heat together the butter and cream until very warm but not boiling. Pour your melted mixture over the chopped white chocolate (chop the chocolate in to fairly small pieces so they melt) and leave for 2 mins then stir and make sure all chocolate has melted! (If your chocolate isn't melting - like mine as I didn't chop the chocolate - Just put the bowl over a pan of hot water and let it melt down)
  9. Leave your ganache to cool for a good hour then give it a good whip with a wooden spoon which should thicken it up nicely so you can pipe πŸ™‚ Pipe a little bit of ganache on top of your cakes, top with a raspberry and finely dust with icing sugar. There you have it, gorgeous elegant & romantic cakes πŸ™‚

    Would love trying this recipe! Need to know if you used any sugar in the ganache?

    • Emma Thompson March 2, 2014 at 11:04 am Reply

      Do πŸ™‚ and let me know how it knows! Nope, no sugar it was sweet enough!

    How much sugar is added for the ganache mixture? It only says double cream butter and chocolate.

    Hi, people are confused about the sugar in the ganache as you’ve said “butter and sugar” in step 8. I believe you mean “butter and cream.” πŸ™‚

    Recipe sounds lovely, I’m going to try it.

      Hi, Thank you so much for pointing that out, I was getting confused why people kept commenting about sugar. Haha I need to be triple checking my posts instead of only double checking. Thanks again, Em.

    My two daughters aged 9 & 10 just made these cupcakes with raspberries that they had picked and it was a really good use of them as the cupcakes were amaze balls! Definitely think they will be making these again! X

      That is so lovely to hear πŸ™‚ Thank you.

    Hi Emma. Just wondering if these cupcakes are suitable to freeze without the Ganache. Have you ever tried freezing them?

    • Emma Thompson September 29, 2014 at 7:33 pm Reply

      Hi there Sue, I haven’t froze them before. I wouldn’t recommend it either as I do think cakes are at there best fresh! πŸ™‚ And with the fresh raspberries in them I would equally be afraid of the juice/water on defrost making the cakes soggy!

    My ganache was very runny – any advice?

    • Emma Thompson October 24, 2014 at 9:04 am Reply

      Try giving it a whip with an electronic whisk! πŸ™‚

    Hi there! Someone in my Myspace group hared this site with us so I
    came to look it over. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers!
    Wonderful blog and amazing design and style.

    how long will they keep?

    • Emma Thompson July 5, 2015 at 8:02 pm Reply

      Hi. With them containing fresh raspberries, I would advise you eat them within 3 days.

  12. Sammy August 18, 2015 at 11:16 am Reply

    I’ve just picked some fresh raspberries so these are going to be lush!

    • Emma Thompson August 18, 2015 at 6:36 pm Reply

      Oooo, delicious! I must make these again soon….there just yummy!

  13. Etta September 24, 2017 at 5:09 pm Reply

    I’ll give it a try when the next potluck rolls around.

    Also, is it just me or do we hope there were more hours for the day just so we could spend more time cooking and baking for others? Hope I’m not the only one who thinks this way. πŸ˜€
