This is for Carly, a good friend of my middle daughter. When I made these and the two of them were in school together, they were Carly’s favourite. They are basically a brownie with white chocolate instead of dark or milk chocolate. I often add macadamias into the mixture to add a bit of crunch. The Blondies photographed were sprinkled with flaked almonds before going into the oven. They are decadent and delicious. I hope you enjoy making them.
400gm of White Chocolate
4 extra large eggs
1 cup of brown sugar
2 teasponns vanilla essence
2 cups of almond meal
1/2 cup of gluten free flour
200 gm of macadamia nuts (roasted) (can use those sugar coated ones)
Preheat oven to 350F or 180C.
Prepare baking pan (lamington pan) by lining with baking paper.
Melt chocolate and butter until just melted
Stir in vanilla
Beat eggs and sugar together until thick, then stir in cooled chocolate, butter mixture. Carefully fold in sifted four (or almond meal) and then nuts.
Spread into the pan and bake for 40 mins. The surface should look flaky. Put in fridge to cool, then cut into desired portions.
Special note.. If you want the Blondies gooeyer cook for less time and add less flour.
