Recipe: Decadent summer blondies
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter, cut into 1" pieces
- 500 g white chocolate, chopped and divided
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- Icing sugar for dusting (optional)
1 Preheat the oven to 325°F and grease and flour an 8" x 8" baking pan.
2 In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
3 In a small saucepan over low heat, slowly melt the butter and 140g of the chopped white chocolate, whisking constantly. Heat until the butter and chocolate are just melted; remove from the heat and set aside.
4 In a large bowl or in the bowl of an electric mixer, whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add the chocolate mixture and beat until everything is combined.
5 With the mixer running on low, slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, 1/2 cup at a time, until everything is fully incorporated.
6 Gently fold in the remaining chopped chocolate and spoon the batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the blondies are firm on top.
7 Remove the blondies from the oven and allow to cool completely before cutting. Dust with icing sugar if desired; serve.
Prep time: 15 minutes.
Makes 16 Blondies.
Tip: To create a pretty lace-like pattern on your blondies, place a paper doily on top and then dust with icing sugar.
