8oz (2 sticks) butter, plus extra for greasing (the pan, you pervs)
1¾ cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2¾ cup plain flour
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
8oz white chocolate, chopped into small chunks
4 tbsp dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 350°C. Lightly butter a 9×9 square cake tin and line with greaseproof paper. Melt the butter in a saucepan and whisk in the sugar and salt. (A good whisk now will make the mixture slightly lighter and fluffier.) Add the vanilla extract and whisk again. Remove from the heat.
Add the eggs to the butter mixture and stir well. Sift the flour, baking soda and baking powder into a large bowl, then whisk in the egg and butter mixture a little at a time. It’s important to do this in stages so that you don’t get any lumps.
Leave the mixture to cool slightly, then fold in the white chocolate chunks and the cranberries. (If the mixture is too hot, the chocolate will melt.) Spoon into the prepared cake tin and spread out evenly. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the outer edges are firm and the middle still a little soft.
Leave to cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes, then cut into squares before serving. Store in an airtight container.
White chocolate is good for your heart and cranberries are good for your kidneys and butter is good for your digestive system. THIS IS HEALTH FOOD.

Also I would make your recipe but if I tried to feed the finicky buttholes in my family cocoa nibs on a pig they’d all turn up their noses and eat pizza rolls instead.

Knocks out my can ‘o soup nuked in the pyrex measuring cup.
The kittehs just refuse to cook for me. I suppose if they were outdoor cats they might bring me a lizard or bird, but it would be rare, not well done as I like it.
