Recipe Book: Blondies (White Choc Brownies)

First off: these do not, and have never, turned out 'yellow'.  Not using dark brown sugar anyway.  They do smell and taste delicious though - so that compensates for the slightly misleading name.  I found this recipe here (note, there's a paywall).  I altered it a bit - it recommends adding some dried cranberries but I chose against (purely on the basis of them being a bit out of my budget).

If you attempt this recipe - do let me know! I'd love to know how you got on (and just enjoy photos of food anyway. ha!)



340g dark brown sugar  
280g plain flour
240g white chocolate, chopped into small chunks
230g butter, plus extra 
if you're greasing the tin 
Pinch of salt 
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs, lightly beaten
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 180C/
Gas 4. Line a square, relatively thin baking tin with greaseproof paper.


Melt the butter in a saucepan and whisk in the sugar and salt. (A good whisk now will make 
the mixture slightly lighter 
and fluffier.)
Add the vanilla extract and whisk again. 
Remove from the heat.
Add the eggs to the butter mixture and stir well.


Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder into a large bowl, then whisk in the egg and butter mixture a little at a time. (It’s important to do this in stages so that you don’t get any lumps.)


Leave the mixture to cool slightly, then fold in the chocolate chunks and any fruit / nuts you wish to add. (If the mixture is too hot, 
the chocolate will melt.)


Spoon into the prepared cake tin and spread out evenly.


Bake for 35-40 minutes until the outer edges are firm and the middle still a little soft.

 Leave to cool on a wire rack 
for at least 10 minutes, then 
cut into squares before serving.

Once cooled, the blondies will keep in an airtight container 
for up to a week.   

voila! enjoy!
