Having spent a long time prepping my summer bake for my previous post I just wanted to bake with (and eat) chocolate. Brownies are quite possibly my favourite things to make, I can never stop making them and eating them, they are easy enough to throw together on an evening and are such a crowd pleaser they really are one of my favourite things to make. I love how much they can be adapted with the flavour and texture it really is a never ending source of joy.
Is anyone else now well and truly ready for summer to arrive? We have had a few hints of what may be coming our way over the last couple of weeks with the sun breaking through the dark grey clouds and I for one cannot wait. A few weeks ago I was asked if I wanted to take part in a campaign for Inghams called Ingham Foodie Finds. The brief was to come up with a summer recipe from one of their holiday destinations. What a combination, holidays and food, my two favourite things. The brief was the perfect excuse to start thinking of summer bakes.
I am not entirely sure how it is Sunday already, it has been another busy week here. Dave and I are attempting to get back into DIY in the house and garden this year so last weekend was spent digging and chopping down a tree/ hedge/ bush/ prickly thing and we both ended up with scratches all up our arms but hopefully all worth it for when the summer comes. If any of you have some gardening tips I definitely need all of them so please feel free. We are attempting to have a little vegetable patch up and running this year but then again we said that last year – as you can tell its all a work in progress. Anyway back to the post in hand, I have more blondies for you this week delicious ones with biscoff and white chocolate in.
At the beginning of the year I didn’t even really know what they were but now I am well and truly hooked. As a brownie lover, the darker the better, I was unsure of its fairer counterpart, questioning what the point really was. However, on the continuing quest of trying out new things and seeing that people seemed to love them I needed to understand why. So, I took my first, hesitant step into the world of blondies with this recipe and can guarantee that this certainly won’t be the last blondie recipe you see me make, I am a convert. The butterscotch flavours had me from the first taste, imagine raw cookie dough but better (because at the very least its not raw).
Why hello there! Here we are almost hitting the end of January (if anyone could tell me where time disappears to let me know) and here is my first blog post of 2017. I have had a good time off though, busy spending time with family, doing DIY and getting some ideas together. I am looking forward to a fun (and cake) filled 2017! I am starting as I mean to go on with a delicious brownie recipe for you.
