Blueberry Blondies

blueblondies1

As you can see from my ‘picture’ on the blog I am a blonde… not a completely natural one but I do seem to possess quite a lot of the typical blonde personality traits.

The other day at work I was taking pictures of samples with my phone when I said to my colleague ” Wouldn’t it be great if there was some kind of device that only took pictures so I wouldn’t have to use my phone all the time!”. To which she replied ” Errr, do you mean a camera?!”

Well, exactly.

Believe it or not, I do hold down a demanding job, have a mortgage and am a Mother. I’m not quite as ‘Blonde” as Jessica – “What part of the buffalo do buffalo wings come from?” – Simpson but I have my moments. As a very wise fair-haired woman once said ‘The best part of being blonde is forgivable momentary lapses of common sense”.

I got thinking about all this because I made Blondies! OK, so they might not have quite the depth of they’re Brownie sisters but they’re zesty, sweet and ultimately a lot more fun!

These Blondies are studded with jammy blueberries, packed with hunks of white chocolate and have an extra squodge element thanks to the ground almonds. The lemon zest stops all this getting too cloyingly sweet so its pretty easy to hoover up several slabs in one go….

  1. Ooohhh these look so delish. I could do with some right now – even though it’s only 9am. It’s never too early for chocolate anything!

    • Ha! Exactly. I made a second batch of these to take to work and scoffed a piece as I was cutting it into slabs at 7am!

Lemony loves comments!
