The cake is so good, in fact, that they don’t need to slather it with frosting. The frosting merely highlights and complements the insanely moist cake.

How to Make this White Chocolate Raspberry Swirl Bundt Cake
Make the Cake Batter
Simply combine the cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, eggs, milk and oil in a large mixing bowl.
Then, chop up the white chocolate and fold it into the cake batter.
Layer the Raspberry
Grab your bundt cake pan and pour 1/3 of the cake batter into it. Then, dot 1/3 of the raspberry preserves on to the cake batter. Use a knife to swirl it around.
Repeat this process two more times, until you have three layers of cake batter and raspberry.
Now, you’re ready to bake!
Make the Frosting
While the cake is baking, go ahead and whip up the delicious cream cheese frosting.
Beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter and vanilla together and it’s done!
Decorate the Cake
Fill a piping bag or Ziploc bag with the cream cheese frosting and snip off the tip of the bag. You’ll want a pretty big opening in the bag because the frosting will be thick.
If you want your cake to look like Nothing Bundt Cakes white chocolate raspberry, pipe the frosting in vertical lines going down the cake, leaving lots of unfrosted space.
I like to use the indents that are created by my bundt cake pan as guides for frosting the cake, but you can frost it however you’d like.
Make this cake extra pretty by garnishing it with fresh raspberries and more white chocolate chips.
Variations on this Nothing Bundt Cakes White Chocolate Raspberry Recipe
1. Vary the Fruit. The combination of white chocolate and raspberry gives a very distinctive holiday feel. If you’re looking to bake this cake for a different occasion or during a different time of year, try varying the fruit preserves that you use. Blueberry, blackberry or strawberry preserves would be delicious. Add a hint of lemon zest to the batter for a brightness reminiscent of springtime.
3. Make Bundlets Instead. My favorite thing to eat at Nothing Bundt Cakes are the little bundlets. They are so cute! Make this cake in a mini bundt pan for sweet little individual treats.
How to get a Bundt Cake to Release with no Drama
There is nothing more stressful than working hard on a beautiful bundt cake and then panicking when it won’t release! Here are some tips for a drama-free cake release:
- Thoroughly Grease the Pan: Before pouring the batter into the bundt pan, make sure to generously grease all the nooks and crannies. This creates a barrier between the cake and the pan, allowing for easier release.
- Let the Cake Cool Properly: Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan after removing it from the oven. This helps the structure of the cake set, making it less likely to stick to the pan.
- Tap and Shake: Gently tap the sides and bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon or a spatula. This helps to loosen any areas that might be sticking. If needed, run a knife along the side of the pan, between the cake and the pan, to help loosen it.
- Steam It: Place a dish towel in boiling water. Then, remove the hot dish towel and lay it flat in the sink. Place the bundt pan directly onto the hot dish towel. Let it steam for 10 minutes. Then, try inverting the cake.
- Freeze It: When all else fails, put the cake in the freezer. Freezing the cake will shrink it a little, which helps to pull it away from the sides of the bundt pan.
How to Store this White Chocolate Raspberry Cake
If you want to store this cake for a few days, simply cover the whole cake with plastic wrap and place it into the refrigerator. Let it sit out at room temperature for 30 minutes before you enjoy it again.
If you’d like to store it for longer, cut the cake into individual slices, wrap them in plastic wrap, and place them into a freezer safe storage bag. They’ll stay fresh in the freezer for several months, if stored properly.
