White Chocolate, Lime and Raspberry Cake with Yogurt Popcorn Topping

White Chocolate, Lime and Raspberry Cake with Yogurt Popcorn Topping

The week before I went on holiday, I wanted to use up some bits and bobs I had in my kitchen, and as I needed to make a cake for playgroup anyway, it was the perfect opportunity to use them up in a tasty way.So with what I could find, namely some white chocolate, some raspberries, a lime and some Butterkist yogurt coated popcorn which I had received in my new Degustabox UK delivery a week earlier.

So,of course, I used all of these to make a yummy cake. Ta daaaaaaa!

The cake turned out much better than I had expected for a bit if an experiment, as I melted some white chocolate with the butter for the sponge, so I was nt sure of it would rise well. But, as you can see it did! Yay!

I love the little bursts of red that adding raspberries to the sponge makes too – it looks so inviting to eat I think.

The top of the cake was more white chocolate with some of the yogurt coated popcorn (which tastes like white chocolate popcorn to me, and is very nice!) and raspberries, and some grated lime zest. Adding lime to the sponge certainly added some freshness too.
