White Chocolate and Raspberry Traybake🍰

I was looking forward to trying this recipe as raspberries and white chocolate are a great combination. This traybake goes well with some freshly whipped cream and a nice cup of tea☺️

ingredients

  • 200g Butter softened
  • 200g Caster sugar
  • 200g Self-Raising Flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 50g Ground Almonds
  • 1 portion icing sugar for dusting
  • 150g Raspberries
  • 1tsp Vanilla extract
  • 100g White chocolate

method

  • Preheat the oven to 180° C/gas mark 4. Grease a 28cm x 18cm rectangular tray with butter and line with non-stick baking paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until well combined and pale in colour, then mix in the eggs and vanilla extract. It will look a bit scrambled, but the flour will sort that out.
  • Sift the flour and salt into the bowl and mix to combine, then stir in the ground almonds.
  • Chop the white chocolate into chunks.
  • Mix in the fruit and chocolate chunks, then pour the batter into the tray.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, until golden and a skewer comes out clean.
  • Cool in the tin.
  • Dust with icing sugar, then cut into squares.
