Plum and White Chocolate Tray Bake

Plum and White Chocolate Tray Bake
Any recipe with white chocolate in the list of ingredients usually catches my eye. I thought I'd give this one a try, it's in the September 2010 edition of Country Homes and Interiors magazine.

75g butter
200g white chocolate
125g light muscavado sugar
3 medium eggs
175g self raising flour
250g ricotta cheese
65g castor sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla extract
300g plums stoned and cut into wedges

1. Preheat the oven to 190 c/375 f/ gas 5. Grease and line the base and sides of a shallow baking tin measuring about 28cm x 20cm. Break the white chocolate into pieces and melt with the butter.

2. In a separate bowl, beat together the muscavado sugar, whole eggs and flour to make a paste. Stir in the melted chocolate mixture. Spread into the prepared tin.

3. Beat the ricotta with the castor sugar, egg yolk and vanilla extract and spoon over the top of the chocolate mixture . Use the end of a round bladed knife to lightly marble the two mixtures together. Bake for 20 minutes.

4. Scatter the plums over the top and bake for a further 25 minutes until set in the centre. Leave to cool in the tin before cutting cutting into squares and serving.
