I know, blondies are old news around here. But how about a warm batch studded with juicy blackberries and melty white chocolate?
Seriously. I’m such a sucker for that dense, chewy brown sugar dough – and when I get inspired by combos like berries and white chocolate (why should scones get all the love?) it only takes 5 minutes to stir up a batch – a good thing when a) you need to know if it works, in the name of research, b) a friend / neighbour / stranger needs a panful of homebaked comfort, or c) you realize shortly before a backyard ‘do that you’re supposed to bring something. This recipe has been called into service for all of the above.
And there’s always d) the raspberries / blackberries are starting to grow in your back yard / back lane and you have the luxury of a neverending bowl of them on your countertop. This is not the case here in my kitchen, but it’s something I aspire to.
