White Chocolate and Raspberrry Blondies

One of the perks of baking is that you can delve into its deepest, darkest crooks and crannies at any time which takes your fancy.
The season, time of day, and torrential downpour outside are all utterly irrelevant.
Infact...You can even laugh at the rain outside whilst snuggled in a big, squishy armchair, cradling a steaming cup of tea and one of your freshly made fruit buns that are just out of the oven!
Summer or Winter, rain or shine; you can whack out the cake tins and piping bags regardless!



Since Summer is on its way, its time to change the Sunday roasts for BBQ's and the chocolate bars for a 99 Flake ice cream!
I whipped up a batch of these scrummy bites to carry on the Summer vibes.
Lighter, fruity, not overly sickly- yet still rather comforting with each bite!
Time to have a nibble on myWhite Chocolate and Raspberry Blondies while soaking up that gorgeous Summer sun!



(Perfect for that light, fresh feeling when you do not want to over indulge on something heavy or too rich.)

To make your own, you will need:

- 125g unsalted butter
- 300g good quality white chocolate
- 150g caster sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 200g plain flour
- 3 eggs
- pinch of salt
- 150g fresh raspberries

Preheat your oven to 170C (160 fan) and line a baking tray with parchment.


In a large saucepan, melt the butter and 200g of the chocolate on a low heat, stirring in between.
Allow this to melt and cool for a few minutes.


Meanwhile, pop the eggs, flour, sugar, vanilla extract and the salt into a mixing bowl and beat until fully combined.




Scrape all of your delicious, buttery chocolate into the mixing bowl and beat in.



I swear that I could live off raspberries! Sweet, little nuggets of ruby red bliss!


Gently fold your raspberries into the batter with a spoon or spatula, you are ideally going for that incredible marbled effect of crimson swirls.



Tip the blondie mix into your prepared cake tin, cut up the remaining 100g of chocolate into mini chunks and sprinkle on top.



Slide into the oven for 35-40 minutes, beware though! They turn golden very quickly so you might need to cover the tin with tinfoil for the last 10 minutes to stop the crunchy top from burning.


It might not be the sort of blonde with swishing curls that glisten in the sun like a hair and beauty advert... But these cheeky blondes are just as pretty in my eyes!


Effortlessly simple, perfect in the sun with some vanilla ice cream, and not overly rich.
New summer favourite?
I think so!


Just look at that blondie... What a (delicous) poser!

  2. Looks delicious! I've once made the chocolate and raspberry cheesecake brownies from the Green and Black's cookbook, which was delicious, but this looks just as good, with less hassle!
