I was looking for a white chocolate mud cake recipe but there was always something not quite right with each recipe so I'v come up with this little gem. It was the most AMAZING cake! It is best eaten on the day of making it and does not refrigerate very well as it goes quite solid but in saying this I did refrigerate mine for a couple of hours after it was finished and turned out fine as it was still warm in the middle. The Raspberry sauce Is optional but compliments the cake REALLY REALLY well.
