White Chocolate and Cranberry Blondies

IMG_2671 iphone

This ultra rich blondies recipe (heaps of butter and white chocolate!)  I discovered while viewing Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Cookery Course on Foxtel… this recipe is adapted from something I sourced on the internet, but seems to be an American version – sticks of butter are mentioned which of course is a  US measurement. I have changed the quantities to metric.

Ingredients

1 cup dried cranberries
2  x 100gms white chocolate bars
225g plainflour
226 gms butter
1 pinch of salt
300 gms sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 eggs

Method

Line a 23cm x 23cm tin with baking paper.

Melt butter, add sugar to mixing bowl. Add salt to sugar.
Add melted butter to sugar and whisk well. Add vanilla and eggs, whisk well.
Add baking powder and bi-carbonate of soda, mix well.
Whisk in half the flour. Once incorporated (no lumps), add the rest of the flour and mix well until there are no lumps.
Add the dried cranberries, changing from a whisk to a spoon.
Slice the bars of white chocolate into  thick matchsticks and mix in gently, trying not to break up the chocolate.
Spoon into baking tin (previously lined with baking paper (butter or non stick spray the tin to hold paper in place).
Spread mixture into the tin, using a spatula to make sure the mixture is even.
Bake at 180 degrees C for 35 -40 minutes.
Leave to cool, then remove from tin.
Cut into squares. Blondies will keep for a week and also freeze well.
