I'm not usually a fan of white choc but I can see why this works. It's a very easy recipe too. Bookmaking it for one of my "Try something new" days!
A perfect combination! That cake looks delicious and so light in texture!

It s like speckled with Jewells. Looks so so good!
white chocolate does have some good for you calcium and other merits. i'm sitting here proofing my book on chocolate and while the dark stuff is what i tout--for the most part--white chocolate has its place, too. it's a nice balance from time to time. looks light, sweet, did I say light? great late summer food.

Hi there, love your blog! Have been a quiet reader for months. This fruit cake looks utterly delicious. My uncle is a fan of both fruit cakes and cheesecakes and I am hoping to incorporate cream cheese into a fruit cake for his birthday. Do you think that will work?? =D
