Can you make me some Blondies…..!

The other night, our lovely Daughter, came in to the kitchen, and, out of the blue, asked could I make Blondies to put in her lunch-box for the next day.  “Sure”, I said, “no problem, I’ll just wave my magic wand…”!

Never having made Blondies, I was at a little bit of a loss as to what  they were.  Were they just Brownies with white chocolate?  Well, yes, but the recipe I found had an extra ingredient!

Out came the trusty Notebook, and off I went on a quick hunt for said Blondies.   Well, I found, almost straight away, this one on the Good Food Channel website, adapted from a recipe by Ms. Rachel Allen

Delighted with myself, I set about making these Peanut Butter Blondies,  the recipe for which, was amongst the first few to come up on the Search Engine.  So, here’s the-run down on how to make them.

You will need:

A lined & greased 20cm/8″ x 20cm/8″ Brownie Tin
125g/5 oz approx. Plain Flour
100g/4 oz approx. Softened Butter
175g/7 oz approx. Light Brown Sugar
150g/6 oz approx. Crunchy Peanut Butter
1 Beaten Egg
1 tspn Vanilla Extract 
75g/3 oz. chopped White Chocolate
Note:  On this occasion, the white chocolate used was a cooking chocolate.
I allowed 25g = 1 oz.
First of all, as usual, you need to pre-heat your oven to Gas Mark 3/170C/325F.  

Sift the baking power and flour into a bowl.


In a second bowl, combine the  the peanut butter and ordinary butter together until it is soft.  Then, add the sugar, egg & vanilla, combine, and finally add the flour (with baking powder), the chocolate and bring together to form a dough.

Put the dough mixture in to the Brownie tin, place on the middle shelf of your oven for approximately 30 minutes.  I had to leave it for at least 45 minutes, but that’s just my oven!  Test with a skewer to ensure it is cooked through.
The longer cooking time resulted in “Bronzies” rather than Blondies, but it didn’t matter, they still tasted great.

  1. I love these, I made them when I first saw the Rachel Allen recipe and fell in love. I might try adapting the recipe and make gluten free ones as a treat next weekend.
