Port & Blackberry Cake

Summer seems to be hurtling past at the moment and I appear to be struggling to keep up. I cannot believe we are in the middle of August already and I am starting to fear that summer will be over and done with before I have had sufficient time to soak up the sunshine, enjoy as many barbecues as humanly possible and eat a million ice lollies.

White Chocolate & Biscoff Blondies

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.

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).
