Topping:

  • Fresh raspberries
  • Drizzle of white chocolate ganache

Instructions
 

Prepare the Vanilla Sponge:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Grease and line an 8-inch round cake pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In another bowl, mix the applesauce, plant-based milk, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Prepare the Raspberry Ripple Mousse:

  • Melt the dairy-free white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth. Let it cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, whip the dairy-free whipping cream until soft peaks form.
  • Gently fold the melted white chocolate into the whipped cream until combined.
  • Swirl the mashed raspberries into the mousse mixture, creating a ripple effect.

Assemble the Cake:

  • Place the cooled vanilla sponge layer on a serving plate or cake stand.
  • Spread the raspberry ripple mousse evenly over the sponge layer.
  • Refrigerate the cake for 2-4 hours to allow the mousse to set.

Prepare the White Chocolate Ganache:

  • Place the dairy-free white chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl.
  • In a small saucepan, heat the coconut milk until it just begins to simmer.
  • Pour the hot coconut milk over the white chocolate chips and let it sit for 2-3 minutes.
  • Stir until the chocolate is melted and the ganache is smooth. Allow it to cool slightly until it thickens but is still pourable.

Decorate the Cake:

  • Drizzle the white chocolate ganache over the top of the mousse.
  • Decorate with fresh raspberries.

Serve:

  • Slice and enjoy this beautiful and refreshing dessert!

Notes

  • Dairy-Free Whipping Cream: Brands like coconut cream or soy whipping cream work well for the mousse.
  • Raspberries: Fresh raspberries provide the best texture and flavor for the ripple.
  • White Chocolate Chips: Ensure the white chocolate chips are dairy-free.
