I quite like tray cakes, as if you didn’t know that already! Tray cakes are simple to make, allows people to cut off as much, or as little, as they like and can be served as a cake, or with custard as a pudding. So as I also like the flavour of white chocolate. guess what I did… I COMBINED THE TWO OF COURSE, hahahahaha. Let’s-a-go!
200g Caster Sugar
200g Softened Butter
4 Medium Sized Eggs, beaten
100g Dairy Free/Lactose Free White Chocolate, finely grated
200g Gluten Free Self Raising Flour
34cm Oven Tray
Cake Release Spray or Oil Spray
Wooden Spoon/Electric Hand Whisk
Measure out your ingredients and preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas Mark 5, also grease and line your oven tray.
Grab your mixing bowl and tip the sugar and butter into it. Cream them together thoroughly with a wooden spoon or an electric hand whisk until light and fluffy.
Add in the eggs and, again, beat together until your mixture is nice and smooth. This may take a while, but it is better to do it thoroughly now so that you don’t have little lumps of butter in your mixture as this creates air holes and I think that mixing as much as we do makes the cake fluffier anyway.
Add in your grated white chocolate and mix until well combined.
Add your flour, a little at a time, and mix until fully combined.
Place your mixture into your oven tray, trying to get it as flat as possible with either a wooden spoon, or spatula. However, do not worry too much as the mixture spreads out in the oven (though it doesn’t hurt to help it along its way).
Cook for 15 – 20 minutes or until a cake tester/skewer/teaspoon handle is inserted and comes out clean.
Leave your cake to cool for 10 minutes in the tin on a cooling rack, and then remove the cake on to the cooling rack, leaving it to cool completely.
