White chocolate and orange mini cakes

These small delectable mini cakes are  highly addictive!  My colleague brought a box of these babies at work and it was devoured by the team in no time. Beautiful things ought to be shared after all and that's exactly what she did. Sharing recipes became a nice habit at work and I intend to pass it forward.


300 g white baking chocolate, chopped
100 g butter
100 g white sugar
120 g al purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp- salt
5 eggs
Orange aroma or rind of one orange

Baking Instructions:

 1. Melt butter and white chocolate together. I pop a bowl of chopped white chocolate in the microwave for less than a minute at 400 watts. Stir in butter and heat it up again for another half a minute until smooth.  You can heat it using a water bath instead.
 2. Using an electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar until thick and pale.
 3. Beat in orange aroma or  rind, if using.
 4. Pour butter and chocolate mixer into the bowl. Stir until well incorporated.
 5. Mix together flour , salt and baking powder. Sieve and add into the bowl. Carefully fold everything until smooth and lumps dissolve.
 6.  Grease or butter baking pan. I used silicon moulder . A muffin pan is an alternative. Leave ample space between the mini pan as cake rises and grows as it cooks. Bake in a preheated oven ( 160°C) for 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Perfect with morning coffee or during afternoon tea..


  1. This looks yummy! I wanted to try this but you did not mention
    how much sugar you put in your batter?

    Thanks & God bless!

    1. Thank you for dropping by and for the reminder, I will edit the post immediately. I just used half a cup / 100 g of white sugar since white chocolate is sweet enough. Have a good day!
