Caramelised Blueberry Blondies

Brownies & Blondies | 26th September 2015 | By

The British blueberry season is still in full swing, well maybe not quite full swing, but my mother is still picking blueberries here in Cornwall, so there are certainly some around. Blueberries pair very nicely with white chocolate, so when I was commissioned to create a recipe for Wayfair last month, I used this combination to make some caramelised blueberry blondies.

For those not in the know, Wayfair is an online outfit selling furniture and other household items. Both the cloth and rectangular plate featured in the photographs came from this establishment.

The blueberry blondies, inspired by these raspberry blondies I made last year, are sweet and squidgy with a beautiful colour as well as flavour from the blueberries. The addition of lemon zest gives a delightful citrus zing. The piece de resistance, however, is the white chocolate which caramelises whilst cooking giving a crunchy and very tasty crust.

    These look delicious! I love the addition of the blueberries in them. I’ve never had a blonde with fruit in them, so will have to try these. Thanks for including my recipe as well 🙂

      Thanks Sophie. white chocolate goes well with most fruit I find – it’s the vanilla notes.

    These look fantastic. You’re right, white chocolate and blueberry is a fantastic combination (though I am biased as white chocolate is my favourite type of chocolate…) I’ve never made blondies before though. These look quite straightforward so I’ll definitely be bookmarking these!

    (PS. I hadn’t discovered Wayfair until very recently and feel my bank balance may be about to take a hit haha!)

      Hehe Emma, it is a bit addictive and they do have some very nice stuff. If you like white chocolate, then blondies are definitely for you.

      Well Paul Hollywood would disapprove as they bleed into everything, but I like that. A classic blueberry muffin is a good place to start and adding lemon to them brings out the flavour and stops them being too sweet too.

      Thank you Manu. Blueberries are a lovely fruit and baked along with lemon, they are even better I find.

    Gorgeous! I don’t really like white chocolate much usually but these look wonderful and I love the sound of the caramelised crunchy top on these squidgy delights!

      Thanks Katharine. I’m not a fan of eating white chocolate on it’s own, I find it far too sweet, but I do love it in baking.

    ooh very yummy, would work well with other fruit too I would imagine. The cloth and plate look good too. Thanks for including a link to my ‘Barbies’

      Thanks Janice. It certainly worked well with raspberries, but it has yet to be tried with anything else.

      Thanks CC. There’s a lot of nonsense talked about fruit bleeding into cake batters. That’s what makes them even more appealing, surely!

      Thanks Nadia. They are moist with crunchy tops, which is just about my favourite combination 🙂

      Thanks Mayuri. I was really pleased with the plate, it makes more sense than a round plate for lots of things.

    White chocolate and berries has to be one of my most frequent kitchen pairings! I bet these blondes were so good… I can almost taste them from here!

      Go get your blondie on Kavey. The beauty of baking with blueberries, is that they are easily available all year around.
