Gluten free blueberry lemon zest traybake

I was inspired by my gluten-free chocolate cake recipe and decided to create one using white chocolate. Also, I had a lot of white chocolate that is about to expire, so this recipe was perfect! As white chocolate is mainly sugar, I had several attempts at this recipe to make sure that it isn’t too sweet. This traybake is really  simple and quick to make and it makes the perfect party dessert.

  2. 150g white chocolate
  3. 80g butter
  4. 50g caster sugar
  5. 2 eggs

  7. Zest 2 lemons
  8. 50g blueberries
  9. 20g desiccated coconut

  4. Add in the caster sugar into the melted chocolate and butter, mix well and leave it to cool slightly
  5. Whisk in two eggs into the slightly cooled mixture and add in the lemon zest and vanilla essence
  6. Mix in the almond meal until a uniform mixture is formed
