Ingredients

  • 120 g Unsalted Butter melted and cooled
  • 100 g Granulated Sugar
  • 50 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg large
  • 1 Lemon zest only
  • 130 g Plain Flour
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 100 g Blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 100 g White Chocolate Chips

For the topping

  • 50 g White Chocolate melted

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 108°c (160 fan/ Gas 4/ 350F) and line a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper.
  • Mix together the cooled melted butter and sugars until combined.
  • Beat in the egg.
  • Fold in the flour, salt and baking powder.
  • Stir through the blueberries, lemon zest and white chocolate chunks.
  • Spoon the blondie batter into the tin and bake for 22-25 minutes. The blondies should be just pulling away from the edge of the tin but soft in the middle.
  • Allow to cool fully before drizzling over the white chocolate icing. Leave to set before cutting into squares.

Notes

Top Tip:
Speed up the cooling time by placing the blondie tin in the fridge for 30 minutes after baking. Drizzle with the white chocolate icing then place back in the fridge for a further 30 minutes to set.
 
Variations:
  • Swap the fresh blueberries for dried blueberries (or you could even try dried cranberries).
  • Use raspberries or blackberries instead of blueberries - fresh or frozen will be fine.
  • Add a handful of chopped walnuts to the blondies for crunch and texture.
  • A sprinkling of lemon zest over the white chocolate drizzle gives the blondies a citrussy flavour boost.
 
Storage:
The baked blondies can be stored in an air-tight container for up to 5 days.
The blondies can also be frozen for up to 3 months. Freeze in layers separated by baking paper, to avoid the blondies from sticking together. Defrost thoroughly before serving.
