Ingredients

  • 180 g caster sugar
  • 180 g butter softened
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 200 g self-raising flour
  • 4 tbsp strawberry cordial optional
  • 3 large strawberries chopped into small pieces

Topping:

  • 100 g white chocolate broken up and melted
  • 2-3 large strawberries sliced
  • decorations as desired

Instructions

  • Grease and line a large (900 g) loaf tin.
  • Cream the sugar into the butter until it is very soft.
  • Add the eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition.
  • Add the strawberry cordial and stir in.
  • Next, sift in the flour and fold it in.
  • Add the chopped strawberries and mix them in so they are well distributed.
  • Pour the mixture into the lined loaf tin.
  • Bake at 180 degrees for 40-45 minutes until golden brown. Use a cake tester or skewer to check the centre is cooked as the added cordial makes a runnier mixture than usual. Cover the top with foil if it is getting too dark.
  • Leave the loaf to cool completely.
  • When ready to decorate the cooled cake, slice some strawberries and place them on top. Then melt the white chocolate and use a piping bag to drizzle it over the cake from side to side.
  • Finish with a scattering of strawberry chocolate curls.
