For the Cake:
187 grams cake flour-sifted (it’s about 1 1/2 c plus 3 tbsp cake flour before sifting but you better measure it on kitchen scale because the cake could be dense or dry if you overdo it with the flour)
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 c cranberries (fresh or thawed)
140 grams (5 oz.) a white chocolate chunk
115 grams (1/2 c) unsalted butter-softened at room temperature
300 grams sugar (1 and 1/2 c)
1/2 c heavy cream
1/2 c mascarpone cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp browned butter
56 grams (1/4 c) unsalted butter-softened
112 grams (4 oz.) cream cheese-softened
1 and 1/2 c powdered sugar (or more to make it thick enough to spread on top of the cake)
1 tsp vanilla extract
handful dried cranberries
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 c white chocolate chips
Step 1: Prepare the oven and preheat to 325 degrees C.
