I have decided to challenge myself to bake a different cake/biscuit from Marian Keyes' book, Saved By Cake, each month, between March and December. I am a beginner at baking and use the same recipes over and over again so it'll be nice to try something new. I will take photos and post them on here each month - the good, the bad and the ugly.
I think I must have been living under a rock because I'd never heard of a blondie before I opened Saved By Cake. For other rock dwellers, a blondie is like a brownie but made with white chocolate.

Like all the other recipes I've attempted in Saved By Cake, it was very straight forward and easy to understand. I was a bit wary of melting the chocolate as it warned that white chocolate burns at the drop of a hat (and I'd burned the caramel to smithereens while attempting the Millionaire's Shortbread) but it turned out absolutely fine - woo!
As I mentioned last month, I'm not a huge fan of nuts so I only used about half and they came out lovely with a nice flavour of nut and a bit of a crunch but not too overpowering for an anti-nut person like me.
The Blondie Cupcakes were really quick and easy to make but they've been a big hit in the Mama J family so I think I will be making them again in the future.
