Gordon Ramsay Blondies Recipe

Gordon Ramsay Blondies Recipe

Recipe source :  Gordon Ramsay

Blondies are white chocolate version of brownies. Personally, I find blondies less intense in taste and flavour compared to regular brownies. The cranberries were tasty and chewy. In fact, the next time I bake it, I would definitely add more cranberries than the suggested amount in this recipe.

My blondies turned out uneven. The edges were slightly higher then the middle portion which had sunken slightly but then I was comforted by the fact that the original photo had shown Gordon's blondies to be slightly uneven too.

Ingredients

  • 230g butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 340g dark brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 280g plain flour
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 240g white chocolate, chopped into small chunks
  • 4 tbsp dried cranberries

Instructions


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas 4. Lightly butter a 23cm square cake tin and line with greaseproof paper.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan and whisk in the sugar and salt. (A good whisk now will make the mixture slightly lighter and fluffier.) Add the vanilla extract and whisk again. Remove from the heat.
  3. Add the eggs to the butter mixture and stir well. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder into a large bowl, then whisk in the egg and butter mixture a little at a time. (It’s important to do this in stages so that you don’t get any lumps.)
  4. Leave the mixture to cool slightly, then fold in the chocolate chunks and the cranberries. (If the mixture is too hot, the chocolate will melt.)
  5. Spoon into the prepared cake tin and spread out evenly. Bake for 35–40 minutes until the outer edges are firm and the middle still a little soft.
  6. Leave to cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes, then cut into squares before serving. Once cooled, the blondies will keep in an airtight container for up to a week.

  1. Hi Doris,

    Funny that GR is "stingy" with the addition of cranberries in this recipe. Yeah... add more for the next bake. At least, the blondies base looks really good :D
