White chocolate and pecan blondies


As a brownie lover, I thought I'd share with you a recipe for this delicious blondie. Similar in texture to a brownie but instead of using cocoa and melted brown chocolate, this uses brown sugar and white chocolate for a deliciously sweet and nutty taste.

Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

1 cup plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup lt brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp vanilla extract or paste
2/3 cup white chocolate chips

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 9x9-inch baking tin.
  2. Seive together in a bowl 1 cup flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, and salt. Add 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Stir the brown sugar into the melted butter and mix well. Cool slightly.
  4. Mix the beaten egg and vanilla into the brown sugar mixture. Add flour mixture a little at a time, mixing until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes.
Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out on to a rack and allowing to cool completely. Alternatively, serve warm with a scoop of quality vanilla ice-cream..... My favourite!


Happy baking xx
