With Christmas around the corner, there are so many cake and cookie recipes in the newspapers. I decided to test out one yesterday.
* 185g white chocolate
* 150g chopped unsalted butter
* 1 cup caster sugar
* 1-1/4 cups plain flour
* 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
* 3 lightly beaten eggs
* 100g roughly chopped glace cherries
Preheat oven to 170C. Line a 20cm (base measurement) square cake pan with non-stick baking paper.
Place white chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water (make sure the bowl does not touch the water). Use a metal spoon to stir occasionally until the chocolate melts and is smooth, then set aside to cool.
Place flour, sugar and baking powder in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and add eggs and the chocolate mixture. Fold in the cherries until just combined. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out slightly sticky. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
It turned out quite yummy! :D
