Christmas Calendar 2012 Day 20 - Raspberry Walnut Slice

Among the various recipes, which I received from my good Australian colleague, was this recipe on Raspberry Walnut Slice, which I decided to make as well in order to bring some fruit, light flavour into my little kitchen. It is a cake, which is not heavy in any way, which many Christmas cakes can be in both taste and calories. Well I have no idea about the calorie content in this one, I mean it does contain BUTTER.

Raspberry Walnut Slice:

  • 150 g butter - soft
  • 110 g icing sugar - sifted
  • 260 g (cake) flour - sifted
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 60 g walnut - chopped 
  • 300 g raspberries
  1. Preheat the (conventional) oven to 180'C.
  2. Cover a baking tray of 20 x 30 cm in baking paper.
  3. Whip the soft butter and sifted icing sugar together until light and fluffy.
  4. Stir in the cinnamon, followed by sifted flour and chopped nuts. The dough looks crumbly.
  5. Place 2½ dl of the cake mix aside for later use. Press the rest of the cake into the baking tray.
  6. Place the raspberries on top. 
  7. Sprinkle with left-over cake crumble.
  8. Bake in the middle of the oven at 180'C for 40 minutes.
  9. Cool down the cake, before cutting into slices.
