This recipe came via the French magazine Saveurs. The company is not generous about sharing recipes online so if anyone is successful to get a subscription, please let me know.


I have to admit, France does have some of the best sweets I’ve eaten. It gives me great pride though to see them going after American classics like carrot cake & brownies.


Foreign magazines in Japan are expensive. The one I bought with this recipe set me back 15 dollars!!

                                                            

Ingredients:

90 grams white chocolate 

105 grams butter (softened)

30 grams raisins

10 grams candied ginger (sliced)

1 teaspoon orange zest

1. Chop the nuts & mix together with ginger, raisins, carrot & orange zest. Sift the flour separately.

2. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over hot water.  

3. Whisk the butter so that it is soft. Mix the eggs & sugar well – whisk over hot water so that they warm up slightly. 

4. Add the egg mixture to the butter in portions. Mix with a whisk. Put over warm water so that the temperature does not become too cool. Add in the chocolate in portions – mix together with a spatula.
