Ingredients

  • 200 gram butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 cup flour, plus extra 1 tbsp flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen berries of your choice
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate buttons, chopped

Method

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 175°C. Line a Swiss roll tin.
  • 2
    Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the egg and vanilla.
  • 3
    Mix in the 2 cups flour and baking powder. Press all but ½ cup of the mixture into tin.
  • 4
    Scatter the berries and chocolate over the base. Add the remaining flour to the ½ cup of base mixture, mixing together. Strew over the berries and chocolate topping.
  • 5
    Bake for 45 minutes or until the top is golden. Leave to cool before slicing either into fingers or squares. Serve warm as a dessert with whipped cream, crème fraîche or ice cream, or keep airtight in the fridge and eat as a slice with coffee.

Notes

  • Makes 20cm x 30cm tray. - You can use any fruit, such as chopped peaches or nectarines, strawberries etc, but I find it best to semi-freeze them first as they cook better from frozen on the slice.
