Blondies aka White Chocolate Brownies!

5 March 2013

I have a lovely friend at work who doesn't like dark or milk chocolate. I know. But not everyone is a complete chocoholic like me. Recently I went on the quest to bake the perfect chocolate orange brownies and my lovely work colleagues were my {very willing} guinea pigs. I felt slightly bad that she was left out of the testing though and she's had a few bits of bad news recently so I really wanted to cheer her up with something yummy. 

So one day the idea of baking some blondies for her popped into my head. She'd never heard of blondies but I explained what they are and she liked the sound of them as she does like white chocolate. So she agreed to be my official tester.

They're more 'cakey' than dark chocolate brownies but the copious amounts of brown sugar and butter give them a lovely butterscotchy taste. You could add all manner of things to them too such as macadamia nuts or raspberries or even more chunks of white chocolate.

And yes, she loved them!

White Chocolate Blondies

Makes 16
Preparation time 10 minutes
Cooking time 30 minutes

125g unsalted butter
250g white chocolate, broken into chunks
4 large eggs
1 tsp salt
250g light brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
300g plain flour

Preheat oven to 170C {325F} gas mark 3. Line a 25 x 20 baking tin with baking paper or foil.

Melt the butter and chocolate together in a heatproof bowl over a simmering pan of water or in a microwave on 50% power in 30 second bursts. Set aside to cool slightly.

Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl until really thick and creamy. Beat in the chocolate mixture, then add the flour and fold in gently, until the flour is just combined.

Pour into the prepared tin and pop in the oven for 30 - 35 minutes. It should be set on top but still gooey in the middle.

Leave to cool completely  then melt a small amount of white chocolate and drizzle over the top of the blondies. Cut into squares. Enjoy!
