  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. Sift together the flour and baking soda; set aside.
  2. Chop the white chocolate and place it in a medium bowl. Pour the hot water over it and stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolks one at a time, then stir in the melted white chocolate and vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk, mixing just until incorporated.
  4. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain.
  5. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

I was disappointed when it didnt taste like white chocolate at all. It was a very moist and light cake, but the name is decieving. It was also time consuming.

The 35 minutes baking time seems to be too short. I would suggest ten minutes more.

This was made for our Christmas cake. The yellow coloring is from the egg yolks. The taste is excellent although perhaps baking powder instead of baking soda would have made it rise more. ...

Tasted great! I use Nestle Milky Bar white chocolate, and it tastes just superb. I do agree with other members, it does need to be cooked longer than stated in recipe. For icing I use more Mi...

The taste of the cake was delicious. However, the cake is not light and fluffy. It came out rather heavy. I used whipped cream frosting and placed strawberries on the frosting, which help bal...
