bitedessert the corners to ensure there are no gaps in the dough. Prick with a fork. Meanwhile, gently whisk the melted butter and brown sugar in a large bowl. Stir in the vanilla extract and add the egg and mix until it is combined. Stir in the flour, ground almonds, and white chocolate chunks until they are evenly distributed throughout the mix. Add a splash of milk if necessary, and fold in the fro- zen cherries. Then pour the batter over the double choc- olate cookie dough-lined tin and smooth over the top. Bake the mixture for around 30-40 minutes until golden or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Leave in the tin to cool completely before cutting the piec- es into squares. The final recipe idea is Zesty Chocolate and Orange Loaf Cake with 175 g softened butter and caster sugar, three large eggs, grated zest of one orange and a tablespoon of orange juice, 200 g of self-raising flour, 50 g of ground al- monds, a splash of milk, and 3-4 Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough balls - crumbled. You will need melted chocolate, flaked almonds, slices of orange peel and the orange itself, and orange zest to decorate. Preheat the oven to 170°C, and grease and line a 900 g loaf tin with greaseproof paper. Beat the butter and sugar together until it is pale and fluffy. Then, add the eggs, one at a time and beat them until combined. Add a couple of tablespoons of the weighed flour if the mix looks as if it is beginning to curdle. Add the orange zest and orange juice, followed by the flour and ground almonds. Beat until you have a smooth, thick batter and add a splash of milk if it is a little too thick. Spoon 3/4 of the mix into the prepared tin. Scatter the crumbled cookie dough over the mixture evenly through- out the loaf. Then top up with the remaining mix and smooth over the surface. Bake for around 55 minutes to 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the loaf centre comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin for 20 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to finish cooling completely. Drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with your cho- sen decorations. Cut into slices and serve. All Doughlicious cookie doughs are available on their website and at Selfridges, Whole Foods Market, M&S and Amazon Fresh. WARM AND SCRUMPTIOUS
