White Chocolate and Raspberry Sponge Cake
This is a twist on a classic sponge cake. When cooked slowly the white chocolate melts into the mixture and provides a delicately flavoured sponge. The raspberry flakes add a lovely combination making this sponge very truly delicious.
- 225g Unsalted Butter
- 225g Caster Sugar
- 4 Large Free Range Eggs
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 20g Dried Raspberry Flakes
- 75g White Chocolate, Finely Chopped
- Preheat the oven to 180oC/350oF/Gas Mark 4
- Ensure the butter is soft and beat with a wooden spoon or electric whisk in a large mixing bowl until smooth and creamy
- Gradually add the sugar beating all the time. Continue until the mixture becomes white and fluffy in texture
- Beat the eggs in a separate bowl with the vanilla extract. Add this slowly to the creamed butter and sugar stirring continuously
- Sift in the flour into the mixture beating continuously. Try and do this as lightly as possible as to not knock the air out of the mixture
- Add the chopped white chocolate and raspberry flakes until thoroughly combined
- Add the mixture to a large greased cake tin (approximately 23 cm) and spread the mixture evenly around the tin
- Bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes or until the sponge is well risen and golden
- Remove from the oven and cool
- When slightly cooled remove from the cake tin and leave to fully cool on a wire rack
- This can either be eaten straight away or decorated appropriately. A good dusting of icing sugar is also acceptable
