Introduction

I spent quite some time trying to create a simple brownie/"blondie" recipe using my favourite ingredients and here is the recipe I now use. This is ridiculously easy and turns out dreamy for me every time - I hope it works for you too!

Ingredients

Serves: 8

Metric Cups
  • 100 grams white chocolate
  • 100 grams butter
  • 200 grams soft light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 110 plain flour
  • 100 white chocolate chips
  • 50 grams macadamia nuts (chopped)
  • 50 grams raspberries
  • 4 ounces white chocolate
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 7 ounces soft light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 110 all-purpose flour
  • 100 white chocolate chips
  • 2 ounces macadamia nuts (chopped)

Method

Katy's Lazy Blondies is a community recipe submitted by Baking Phoenix and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Preheat oven to 180c/350f/Gas 4. Grease and line a 20x23x4cm tin.
  • Gently melt 100g white chocolate with the butter in the microwave or in a bain marie. (I use a microwave, never had a problem!) Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Seperately, beat the eggs and sugar together. Slowly add the melted chocolate/butter and mix.
  • Sift in the flour and stir gently. Stir in the chopped macadamias and chocolate, then pour the mixture into your tin. Scatter the raspberries evenly over the mixture, press them gently to help them sink. They will sink further when cooking.
  • Cook for 35-40 minutes. (I always cook for the full 40 mins, top shelf of my gas oven, yours might be a little different!)
  • Allow to cool in the tin then slice into 16 squares. Try to avoid scoffing all at once!

  • Additional Information

    If using a 175g bar of white chocolate (seems to be a very common size) use 100g as stated at the beginning of the recipe and just chop up the remaining 75g at the end. This works out fine! This recipe is pretty much a blueprint. I replace the white chocolate with dark to make Brownies and vary the fruit/nuts etc. A friend of mine has started using this recipe and he throws marshmallows into the mix and says it's gorgeous. The possibilities are endless!
