Banana Blondies

Banana blondies???? Oh my oh my what is this now. Found this recipe on the web under Channel 4 by Simon Rimmer from Sunday Brunch. After reading the ingredients, it's sound interesting and different from the usual banana cake, therefore I decided to have a go with the recipe but with a slight twist. The result.....yummmm

  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 100ml double cream
  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 2 large bananas, chopped
  • 1 large banana, mashed
  • 200g white chocolate
  • 1 egg
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 50g flaked almond, toasted
  • 25g flaked almond, untoasted for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 190C/170C for fan assist oven.

In a sauce pan boil sugar, cream and 100g butter for 5 minutes to form a thick sauce. Cool slightly and add in the mashed banana & chopped bananas.

Gently melt the remaining 100g butter and the white chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water.

In a large bowl beat the egg with sugar and vanilla extract, then fold in the chocolate mixture.

Sieve in the flour and baking powder, then fold in gently. Add the banana mixture and flaked toasted almonds.

Spoon into  a greased and lined 23cm baking tin, sprinkle with the untoasted almonds and bake for about 35 minutes.

Cool completely and cut into squares before serving.
