This Weight Watchers white chocolate cake recipe is so good you don't need to be on a diet to enjoy it. Share it with the whole family.

To keep the calories down, this cake is made with a low-fat margarine spread and topped with frosting made from low fat cream cheese. It's still a treat, just one in moderation. It's also quick to make - ready in less than an hour, with no complex steps - it's very easy to do. The finished cake serves about 10 people. There is a lovely layer of raspberries in the middle, but to bulk up the dish and keep it as healthy as possible, serve with a big helping of fresh berries and a little dollop of fat-free Greek yoghurt.


  • 100g (3½oz) low fat polyunsaturated margarine
  • 100g (3½oz) caster sugar
  • 175g (6oz) self raising flour, sifted
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp skimmed milk
  • Pinch of salt

For the filling:

  • 50g (scant 2oz) white cooking chocolate
  • 150g (5½oz) low fat soft cheese
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 200g (7oz) raspberries




  1. Preheat the oven to 160ºC/Gas Mark 3. Lightly spray two 18cm (7 inch) cake tins with low fat cooking spray and line them with baking parchment.
  2. Place all the sponge ingredients together in a mixing bowl and beat for 2-3 minutes, using an electric whisk, until pale and fluffy. Divide between the prepared cake tins and spread out evenly. Bake for 18-20 mins until risen and springy to the touch. Turn out on to a wire rack to cool.
  3. Use a vegetable peeler to make 10g (¼oz) white chocolate shavings to top the cake, and set aside in the fridge.
  4. Break up the remaining chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl, set over a pan of gently simmering water until melted. Cool slightly, then beat in the soft cheese and icing sugar until smooth. Chill in the fridge until needed.
  5. To assemble the cake, spread half the white chocolate frosting over one layer of sponge and gently press in the raspberries. Top with the second sponge and spread the remaining frosting on top. Scatter the white chocolate shavings over the cake. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.

Top tip for making Weight Watchers white chocolate cake

Swap the layer of raspberries for blackberries, halved strawberries or pitted and halved fresh cherries if you prefer. Use fresh fruit if possible, though thawed frozen fruit will work too. Don't use glacé cherries as they are soaked in sugar.
