Blondies

23 Sep

Blondie’s in my opinion, can mean many different things. It can range from a cookie/brownie type thing to a cakey white chocolate square… I already have a recipe for the cookie/brownie one up on my blog, Simple Double Chocolate Chip Blondies  and this is the cakey white chocolate one. I love this recipe, when you look at the ingredients it may seem rich and heavy but in fact it is light and moist and absolutely delicious, if I may say so myself. It is fairly simple and is pretty much a case of putting weighed ingredients in a bowl and whisking. You can make many variations of this recipe, my favorite being orange and dark chocolate chip. I will give more examples below.

Blondies 

200g butter

400g white chocolate, broken into cubes

5 eggs

200g castor sugar

2tsp vanilla

200g plain flour

  • Preheat the oven to 180ºc/350ºf and grease and line a 9 x 13inch tin with baking parchment.
  • Put the butter and white chocolate chunks in a microwave proof container and melt it in 30-40second bursts, stirring after each until nearly fully melted.
  • Put the eggs, sugar and vanilla in another bowl and whisk together. Add the melted chocolate mixture and whisk again.
  • Sieve in the flour and fold in until fully incorporated. Pour into the prepared tin and bake in the oven for 30-35mins or until there is only a very slight wobble when you shake it gently.
  • Remember: It is always safer to over cook it a little, resulting in a bit of a cakey texture then to under cook it and have a blondie that is so runny you cant get it out of the tin! You can always try again after you learn how to cook it to perfection.
  • Let cool in the tin then remove and slice into squares.

Variations

  1. Orange and Dark Chocolate Chip: Add the zest and juice of 1 orange and 2-3 handfuls of dark choc chips to the above mixture
  2. Raspberry and Hazelnut: Add a punnet of raspberries and 150g finely chopped hazelnuts to the above mixture.
  3. Blueberry and Almond: Add a punnet of blueberries and 150g flaked almonds to the above mixture.
