This is a perfect finisher to the main event on 25 December but is jut as good any other time of the year. If like me you never see a cranberry until December you can easily swap these out for blueberries or strawberries.

This is a perfect cake for the barbecue due to it's thick batter consistency which guarantees a fail safe cake for even the worst baker without having to worry about it rising or falling - just make sure it doesn't burn!

The cranberries offer a lovely tart element to the sweet cake mix and with the addition of white chocolate this has all the elements of a great dessert!
