How have I not done this cake before? Please tell me how? White chocolate and macadamia nuts are a perfect combination! They are sweethearts. You should bake this cake on Valentine's Day and share a piece with your sweetheart. It's a match made in heaven.
1 box of white cake mix
2 small boxes of instant vanilla pudding
1/2 cup of veggie oil
1 1/4 cups water
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups macadamia nuts, toasted and divided (see below)
1 jar store bought cream cheese frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease (I use Pam) a 10 inch bundt pan
In mixing bowl, combine cake mix, puddings, oil, water and eggs with electric mixer. Stir in 3/4 cup toasted macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pan and bake 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let cake rest on counter in pan 10 minutes. Then, invert the cake onto a serving plate to finish cooling.
Frost cooled cake with your cream cheese frosting and garnish with your remaining macadamia nuts.
To toast my macadamia nuts, I just put them in a clean, dry pan over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes (stirring often). They'll brown up quickly, so don't look away. Delicious and simple!
