Peanut Butter and White Chocolate Blondies

These were utterly delicious and I've frozen a second batch to use next weekend (catering for relatives during the wedding weekend).

125g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
100g butter, softened
150g crunchy peanut butter
175g soft light brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
75g white chocolate, chopped
20 x 20cm (8 x 8in) square cake tin

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 170oC (325oF), Gas mark 3. Butter the sides of the cake tin and line the base with greaseproof paper.
Step 2: Sift the flour and baking powder into a small bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, cream the butter and peanut butter together until very soft. Add the sugar, egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Add the flour, baking powder and the chopped chocolate and mix to form a dough.
Step 3: Place the dough in the prepared tin and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and almost firm in the centre. Allow to cool in the tin, before removing and cutting into squares.

  7. I like blondies even better than brownies.

  8. Oh yum these sound fantastic. I like how they use crunch peanut butter so you get some crunch.

  9. Those Blondies look fantastic Beth!! I have yet to bake from this book *shame on me*... I really enjoyed watching Rachels show on T.V.
