White Chocolate Brownies

With A Blast: White Chocolate Brownies    #brownies

White Chocolate Brownies ... what is it really, a brownie or a blondie?  I don't know brownies that well, or blondies for that matter.

I found this recipe on the Nestle site and being a lover of white chocolate I had to make it ASAP. But, as they say, "curiosity killed the cat" , I googled white chocolate brownies and did not really get a straight answer.

Apparently, it can be a brownie or a blondie - no matter the color of the actual chocolate or the bars in general.  Something I did pick up on, was that brownies must be chocolatey, but blondies not.

Therefore, I'll leave it up to you to call it whatever you believe it should be.

WHITE CHOCOLATE BROWNIES

{16 - 20 bars}

Adapted by me from the recipe on Nestle's site.

1 1/2 cups Flour
1/2 t Baking Powder
Pinch Salt
3/4 cup Caster Sugar
2 Extra-Large Eggs
2 TB Water
2 drops Almond Essence
200g White Chocolate, melted and cooled to room temperature
1/3 cup Butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup Almonds, raw, sliced
3 TB Dark Chocolate, to decorate

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a 20 x 20cm oven dish with cooking spray.
2.) Combine the Flour, Baking Powder and Salt in a small bowl.
3.) Beat together the Caster Sugar, Eggs, Water and Almond Essence - add the White Chocolate and Butter - stir to combine - gradually add the Flour mixture.
4.) Pour into the prepared oven dish and bake 25 - 30 minutes.
5.) Meanwhile toast the Almond slices in a dry pan over medium heat - it burns suddenly, so keep an eye out {I actually love burnt nuts, but most people don't!}.
6.) Remove the baked brownies from the oven - cool completely.

Decorate with the Almond slices and drizzle the Dark Chocolate over. Slice into bars and serve!

Hope you enjoy,
With A Blast

  1. I much prefer white chocolate but I've never had the almond essence in brownies. If you ever decide to move internationally I will try to relocate my neighbours ;)
