Christmas Cherry & White Chocolate Slice Recipe

I love making lots of different truffles, slices and biscuits at christmas time and am always on the look out when I visit my relatives and friends for new recipes to add to the next christmas menus.
This delicious slice was made by one of my friends and I just had to ask her for her recipe. I loved it and I am sure that you will too once you have tried it for yourself.
This would be just as lovely served up at Easter time or any other special event.


125g unsalted butter
120g white cooking chocolate broken up ( use the best available)
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 cup plain flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups red and green glace cherries
1/2 cup white cooking choc bits


Preheat oven to 180C or 160C for fan forced oven.
Grease a 20 x 30cm slice tin. Line base and sides with baking paper.
Put butter and white chocolate in a small saucepan over a pan of simmering water. Do not allow any water or steam to enter the choc mix as it will ruin it. Stir until smooth and creamy. Remove from heat.
Put sugar and eggs in a large mixing bowl and beat until well combined.
Stir in the chocolate mixture, then sift the flour and baking powder into it.
Gently fold in half of the cherries with the white choc bits.
Pour into slice tin and lightly scatter with remaining cherries.
Bake for approx 25 - 30 minutes or until lightly golden. When a skewer comes out clean, remove from oven and let stand for 8 - 10 minutes before turning out on a cutting board.
Cut into small squares and lightly dust with a little icing sugar if desired.
