This recipe for lemon and white chocolate blondie is so easy to make that it will be sure to be one of your favourites.
I have been working on this recipe for lemon and white chocolate blondie for awhile. After quite a few attempts I think I’ve finally got the recipe perfect. The perfect ratio of tart lemon to go along with the sweet white chocolate. The trick with this recipe is not to cook it for too long because you still want to be slightly gooey in the centre like a brownie.
How to make lemon blondies:
This recipe is super simple to make, first of all you melt the butter and white chocolate in a large bowl in the microwave. I like to do this in 30 second bursts so that I don’t burn the mixture. It usually takes around 1 minute 30 seconds until they are completely melted and then you can mix them together.
In the same bowl add the sugar, lemon zest and juice stir it all together and then add in the eggs. Sift in the flour and baking powder then whisk until there’s no lumps. I like to make my lemon blondie in a rectangle slice tin which is 28 x 18 cm, so that is quite thin once baked. If you want a thicker blondie you can bake it in a smaller slice tin. Cooking times my vary as all ovens are quite different. In my oven 22 minutes seems to be the perfect amount of time so that it is cooked through but still a little bit gooey in the centre.
I like to dust over icing sugar to make a look a bit special before serving. This lemon and white chocolate blondie is best eaten in the first day or two. Store it in an airtight container in the pantry.
You can serve large slices of warm lemon blondie with a scoop of ice cream on top as an easy and tasty dessert. If you enjoy this recipe you should check out my Orange blondie with dark chocolate chips or chocolate caramel brownies.
