22 February 2013


February is the shortest month in the calendar year, but it seems the longest to me. I mean enough with the cold and the snow please! But at least the days are getting longer, I'm hanging on to that!

So I will admit that... I have been cheering myself up with those awesome blondies. There is nothing like sugar to cheer a gal up, no matter how wrong this sounds...

To cheer yourself up too, you'll need:

225 g melted butter
255 g unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt flakes
2 eggs
320 g soft brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Add ins:
90 g of dark or white chocolate chips (I prefer white but I didn't have any sadly)
90 g chopped walnut

Preheat your oven to 175˚C/350˚F and line a 9 inch square tin with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, whisk your eggs together. Add the brown sugar, melted butter and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.

Add the flour, baking powder and salt flakes and stir until just combined. Don't overmix. Add you add-ins of choice.

Pour into your prepared tin and bake for 30-35 minutes. You want them to be all squidgy in the middle, yet firm. As my dad puts it best, these are white brownies! So don't over bake them por favor.

Take out of the oven and leave to cool for a little. Then cut into them, pile high and eat to cheer oneself.

* Sorry for the bad picture quality, I was in a hurry when I baked these... you know... I really wanted to eat them!
