These super-easy blueberry blondies, have an unmistakable fudge centre with vanilla, white chocolate and juicy blueberries that are just delicious in every bite.
Blondies are basically brownies with white chocolate instead of milk or dark chocolate. So if like me, you are one of those people who love caramel flavours, vanilla and white chocolate this is the recipe for you.

- TASTE: Sweet and fruity, rich in butter, caramel and vanilla flavours.

- QUNATITY: 12 blondies (20cm / 8inch square baking pan)

For this blondie recipe all you need are these ingredients:
- Light brown or demerara sugar
- Pure vanilla extract or paste
- Medium/large eggs
- Baking powder
- Plain or all-purpose flour
- White chocolate bar or chips
- Fresh or frozen blueberries
I highly recommend adding a good pinch of salt to your cakes. It might seem counterproductive, but it’s not. Salt helps balance out the sweetness and richness. It also elevates the other ingredients, bringing out the best characteristics of any recipe. In a seemingly absurd or contradictory way, salt intensifies the mouth’s ability to taste sweetness. It is the sodium that sends signals to move glucose into the sweet taste receptor cells in our tongue, triggering the cells to register sweetness. The result is that salt not only alerts our ‘salt sensitivity’, but also our ‘sweet sensitive’ taste buds.
I recommend Maldon Sea salt flakes or Cornish sea salt for baking.

TIP: I highly recommend using metric measurements and a digital kitchen scale, rather than cup measurements. If you have ever ended up with dry, dense or crumbly baked goods, it might be because of inaccurate volume measurements, not all measuring cups are made equally. All my recipes on this blog are carefully developed so that you can easily recreate them in your own kitchen with success, using metric measurements. It is also a lot easier, less messy and you will get far better, consistent results. 🙂
