Matt’s Baking – White Chocolate & Banana Blondies


Tonight being friday and being the sad Foodie I am decided to do a small spot of baking, being a particular interest of mine.

I decided to try something abit different from the usual Brownie and being a great fan of White chocolate decided to hit the Blondie devision of my cook books and found the below recipe.

White Chocolate & Banana Blondies

Ingredients

  1. 250g golden caster sugar
  2. 100g butter
  3. 100g caramel , from a jar or tin (Nestlé Carnation Caramel works well) plus 2 tbsp for the top
  4. 100g white chocolate
  5. 2 eggs
  6. 200g self-raising flour
  7. 2 ripe bananas , sliced

Method

  1. Heat the oven 180C/fan 170C/gas 4. Melt the sugar, butter, caramel and chocolate together until smooth. Cool a little, then add the eggs and fold in the flour and banana.
  2. Pour into a lined 20cm square tin and add a few blobs of caramel to the top, bake for 45-50 minutes or until risen and set.

Well this all looked extremely simple, having decided that these will just be an extremely sweet treat decided to leave my Hotel Chocolat white chocolate with vanilla on the side, and choose the wonderful and old faithful Nestle Milky Bar.  (If its good enough for the Milkybar kid, its good enough for me)  Having an abundance of what seems lower quality chocolate when compared to the likes of Hotel Chocolat etc its always a good way to use the likes of Milka and Nestle.

Having only taken 15minutes to melt down and prepare, the tin was quickly filled and entered the oven, now only the long long wait approach.  At this time I was getting excited as its dinner time and they could be ready to coincide with dessert perfect.  The only thing better than white chocolate blondies, Warm white chocolate blondies.

My hopes soon become true as my dinner is finished and lay before is the this:

They were incredible crispy on the top with a lovely crust, however the insides were very goey and moist.  Excellent.

Only downside being that the white chocolate didn’t really come through at all and i couldn’t tell it was in the mixture, next time im going to try and use Chocolate chips instead and maybe apricots.
