Late night Raspberry and White Chocolate loaf cakes

<3 Little Loaves <3

This is a recipe for 10 little raspberry and white choc loaf cakes with (what I am calling) a raspberry cream cheese glaze.  The reason for calling them 'late night' is because after a late evening shift I fancied a spot of baking....and here were the results.....

For these I used 10 cute little brown card loaf cases which I bought for £2.99 in Sainsburys,  they are really good but you could use this recipe as one large loaf if preferred.


For the Cake
8oz self raising flour
8oz soft unsalted butter
8oz caster sugar
4 Eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of baking powder
100g white chocolate (cut into chunks)
75g fresh raspberries
squeeze of  lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon icing sugar

For the Glaze/icing
100g full fat cream cheese
1 tablespoon strained raspberry jam
100g icing sugar

To decorate (optional)
75g white chocolate chips
sprinkle of freeze dried raspberry powder (I buy this online from Healthy supplies)

-preheat the oven to 170
-firstly in a small bowl mash the raspberries with the icing sugar an dash of lemon juice, set aside
-cream together the sugar, butter and vanilla until very pale, light and fluffy
-beat the eggs in a small bowl and add slowly into the butter/sugar mix (alternate with a spoonful of flour if it looks like it may curdle)
-sift in the flour and baking powder and mix to combine
-then fold through the raspberry pulp and chopped white chocolate to create a ripple effect
-I popped this into a large disposable piping bag and cut a large hole in the end and piped it into the cases (which were already on a baking tray) for ease, but you could simply spoon it in if you like
-bake for around 35mins until golden brown and springy to the touch
-the mixture has a lot of liquid in it due to the raspberries which makes the finished cakes lovely and moist, but it does mean they sink a wee bit in the middle as they cool so don't worry about this if it happens (it did to me anyway)
-whilst they cool, make the icing/glaze by putting the seedless/strained jam in a bowl and mixing until looser and smooth, then add the cream cheese and icing sugar and stir to combine
-pour this onto the cooled loaves and decorate if you want to

Enjoy <3
