Raspberry ripple blondies
Treat the family to this simple but gorgeous traybake. Made with dark and white chocolate and fresh or frozen raspberries, these blondies won't last long
- Serves: 12 persons
- 150g raspberries
- 200g light brown soft sugar, plus 1 tsp
- 225g unsalted butter, plus a little extra for the tin
- 100g caster sugar
- 200g plain flour
- ½tsp baking powder
- 1tsp vanilla extract
- 125g dark chocolate, chopped into chunks
- 125g white chocolate, chopped into chunks
Step 1Tip most of the raspberries into a saucepan (reserving a handful), along with 1 tsp brown sugar and 2 tsp water. Cook over a medium heat until the raspberries have broken down and turned jammy. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool while you make the batter. ½
Step 2Melt the butter in a second pan over a low-medium heat. Tip in both the sugars and cook until the mixture is bubbling and the sugars have dissolved. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 10 mins.
Step 3Meanwhile, combine the flour, baking powder and a good pinch of salt in a large bowl. Butter a 20 x 30cm tin and line with baking parchment. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
Step 4Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, add the eggs and vanilla, and mix well until there are no pockets of flour. Scatter over the dark and white chocolate chunks and fold to combine. Scrape the mixture into the prepared tin and level the surface with a spatula. Dot over teaspoonfuls of the raspberry compote, then use a skewer to gently swirl it through the batter to create a marbled effect. Scatter over the reserved raspberries, then bake for 40-45 mins until set with a slightly gooey centre. Leave to cool completely in the tin, then cut into squares to serve. Will keep for up to three days in an airtight container.
