Book Famine, White Chocolate and Raspberry Blondie Feast

I had lots of plans for how I would spend the six weeks living alone. One idea was Pilates every other day to sort out the book belly before it became a problem but I ended up making these instead. Exercise has never really been my thing.

Yum, that is all

They are really easy and taste absolutely amazing. I have to take them to work because I’ve already eaten about half.


  • 200g salted butter
  • 300g golden caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 200g plain flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150 g raspberries
  • 150g chopped white chocolate



  1. Melt the butter over a very low heat to avoid the salt burning, then when it’s all clear, stir in half the white chocolate.
  2. Cream the sugar and the eggs together until they are fluffy, then fold in the chocolate mixture, vanilla extract and the plain flour to make a thick batter.
  3. Pour the batter into a brownie tin then stud with the remaining chocolate and the raspberries.
  4. Bake at gas mark 4/160 Celsius for 40 minutes or until a fork comes out clean.


I’m between books at the moment. I finished Knots and Crosses by Ian Rankin yesterday and can’t decide what I should move on to. It’s beginning to worry me. I had to take a magazine on the bus this morning… I don’t know how I’ll cope tomorrow.
