Back in the kitchen doing some baking. Thought that I would whip up some white chocolate and almond blondies – you know the light version of a brownie. I like making blondies or brownies in the school holidays as you don’t need to get out the electric mixer (and create more washing up).
You can just melt the butter in the microwave and then there is no need to cream the butter and the sugar.
You can add up to 2 cups of your favorite add-ins to this blondie recipe. I listed a mix of chopped almonds and white chocolate melts in the recipe. I found that this combination provided a nice balance of sweetness and crunch. Of course, you can also leave the add-ins out completely!
But you could get creative and try; milk chocolate chips, candied orange and pecans, white chocolate chips, rose water syrup and pistachios, or dark chocolate, sour dried cherries and macadamia nuts.
Recipe: White chocolate and almond blondies
- 1 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons cornflour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup white chocolate melts
- 1 cup chopped almonds
Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line your tin with baking paper.
Combine melted butter and sugar in a large bowl and stir well. Add eggs and vanilla bean paste and stir until completely combined. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cornflour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually stir dry ingredients into wet until completely combined. Fold in chopped white chocolate melts and nuts, if using. You can keep a few whole chocolate melts for decorating the top.
Spread blondie batter into prepared pan and transfer to oven. Bake on for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few fudgy crumbs.
