  • White Chocolate Filling:
  • Melt white chocolate chips with condensed milk in saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Cool slightly. Fold in yogurt until well blended. Chill while preparing cake. This can be made ahead and refrigerated for 2 days.
  • Cake:
  • Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9" (23 cm) pan and line with parchment paper overlapping two sides for easy removal.
  • Combine first six dry ingredients in large mixer bowl. Add egg, shortening, molasses and 1/4 cup (50 mL) boiling water. Mix on low speed to blend then 2 minutes on medium speed. Carefully add remaining 3/4 cup (175 mL) boiling water; beat 2 minutes longer. Spread batter in pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Remove from oven, let cool in pan 10 minutes, then remove to cooling rack. Cut cooled cake into 1” (2.5 cm) cubes.
  • Toffee Sauce:
  • Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar, corn syrup and milk. Stir over medium heat until hot but not boiling. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.
  • Assembly:
  • Place 1/3 of cake cubes in bottom of 12 cup (3 L) trifle or glass bowl. Drizzle with toffee sauce until moistened. Cover with 1/3 of chocolate mixture. Continue layering, ending with chocolate filling. Refrigerate 2-3 hours to let flavours mingle. Garnish if desired.
  • Tip:
  • Make cake ahead of time – wrap well and freeze for up to 3 months or refrigerate for 3 days. Filling and toffee sauce can be made 2-3 days ahead. Assemble day of serving.
