After Christmas I found I had lots of dried cranberries & nuts left from other recipes.
So I decided to make a variation on my placek (flat cake) with chocolate, nuts & sultanas
120g butter or block margarine
120g Demerara sugar
120g self raising flour
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla essence
100g dried cranberries
100g chopped chocolate (a mixture of dark & white)
80g chopped nuts
Grease and line a 21 x 26 cms baking tray.
Pre-heat the oven to GM4 – 180°C
Chop the nuts and the chocolate.
Mix the nuts, chocolate & cranberries together.
Cream together the butter and Demerera sugar.
Mix in the vanilla essence and the eggs.
Mix in the nut mixture.
Gently fold in the flour.
Put the mixture into a baking tray.
Bake for around 30 – 35 minutes.
Leave to cool in the tin.
Cut into squares to serve.
Served on Queen Anne teaplates – design name unkown.
