Sinner Thursdays - White Chocolate, Cherry and Pistachio Fridge Cakes

Last week, I was craving chocolate, and lots of it.

I considered making myself a big, fat chocolate cake, oozing ganache and cream, but you know what? I really couldn't be bothered. I was feeling lazy.

So instead, I whipped up these White Chocolate, Cherry and Pistachio Fridge Cakes, adapted from the Sainsbury's magazine.

In less than 20 minutes, I had made these little delights and was already scoffing them down over a cup of tea with my best friend.

I love how pretty they look but, most of all, I love how scrumptious they taste. I'm not usually a fan of white chocolate (too sweet for me!) but, when combined with the juicy cherries and the crunch of the pistachios and shortbread, this really, really works.

I adore fridge cake recipes when I'm feeling lazy, and this is such an easy recipe that it's fantastic to bake with kids - you just may need to hide it from them afterwards so you get your share!

white chocolate cake


600g white chocolate (the cheaper, the better - it seems to melt easier!)
2 tbsp honey
10 chopped shortbread biscuits
100g glace cherries, chopped
90g shelled and chopped pistachios


1) In the 30 second blasts, melt the white chocolate and honey in the microwave, stirring well in between.

2) Stir in your added extras, then pour into a lined Brownie tin. Leave to set in the fridge, then chop into squares.
