It was a hot day today. I had warm eggs that needed using up(you know when you leave them out of the fridge in case you want to bake). So which cake? Well I decided to check on how much soft butter I had and then one thing led to another and this recipe was born. They are very more-ish and easy to make with minimal washing up!
In a bowl add:
- 4oz very soft butter
- 4oz caster sugar
- 1oz ground almonds
- 1oz cocoa powder(put through a small sieve)
- 2oz self-raising flour(put through the same small sieve)
- 1t vanilla extract
- 1T white chocolate drops(mini buttons for cookies)
Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes at just under 180degrees.
Cool and eat warm with a strong cup of coffee or tea:)
