White Chocolate, Raspberry and Nut Blondies Recipe



We all love a bit of treat style baking sometimes don't we? These days the internet is bombarded with healthy food recipes which is all well and good but I'll be honest, when I bake I want to bake with good old fashioned indulgent ingredients and these absolutely amazing white chocolate, raspberry and nut blondies were just what I needed last bank holiday and they were so good I couldn't resist sharing my recipe.


Ingredients

For the blondies:
  • 240g caster sugar
  • 150g plain flour
  • 210g melted butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large bar white chocolate 
  • A few handfuls of macadamia nuts 
  • Half a punnet of raspberries
For the topping:
  • 1 large bar white chocolate (plus extra for sprinkling on the top)
  • Half a punnet of raspberries
  • 100g single cream


Let's Cook!

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees and line baking tray with grease proof paper, size depending on how deep you want the brownies to be. 
  2. Beat the sugar and the eggs together until they make a fluffy mixture.
  3. Slowly add the melted butter to the mixture a little bit at a time, folding rather than stirring. Make sure you only add in a little at once though and fold it each time so it's fully mixed in before adding more!
  4. Sieve the flour into the mixture and fold until it's fully combined. 
  5. Chop the raspberries into small pieces and combine - I like to lightly mash them so they're right the way through the blondies! 
  6. Chop the white chocolate up into small chunks and add to the mixture followed by a few generous handfuls of macadamia nuts, depending on how nutty you want them. 
  7. Add the mixture to the baking tray(s) and bake in the oven. The cooking time will vary depending on how deep the tray you use but it should be around 30-40 mins. To check, put a thin skewer into the middle of the blondie - if it comes out completely dry, it's done! If it's got a little bit of soggy mixture on, pop them back in the oven for another 10 minutes and try again.
  8. Once they're done, leave them to cool before adding the topping.
  9. For the topping, melt the white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. When it's melted, slowly stir in the cream. 
  10. Drizzle the sauce over the top of the blondies and add the raspberries, some extra chunks of white chocolate and even some extra nuts if you want! I like to drizzle 


You will definitely not be disappointed - these disappeared pretty quickly in our house! If you decide to make them be sure to tag me in your photos @saltandchic on Instagram or Twitter! I'd love to see you recreate them!
