Searching for the perfect indulgent Autumn treat? These moreish blondies with soft pear and white chocolate chunks are best served warm and drizzled with salted caramel...
As we get ready to accept that the trees are loosing their leaves and day light is scarce, it’s also time to embrace the positives of the colder months, like cosy pyjamas, nights in front of the fire and indulgent Autumn/Winter treats! For the perfect warming dessert, we’re sharing our favourite Caramel Pear Blondies recipe, making the most of the beautiful in-season pears.
Prep time: 10 minutes
GOOEY CARAMEL PEAR BLONDIES
Chewy blondies with white chocolate chunks, soft, warm pear and a gooey drizzle of salted caramel, best enjoyed warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
You will need:
- 100 g unsalted butter
- 200 g soft brown sugar
- 200 g self-raising flour
- 4 tbsp salted caramel plus 6-7 blobs for extra for drizzling
- 2 eggs beaten
- 2 pears- peeled, cored and chopped into small pieces
- 100 g white chocolate chips cut into chunks
Preheat your oven to 180C fan and line a rectangular brownie tin with baking paper.
Take your butter and melt in a pan over a low-medium hear until it turns a golden-brown colour. Next, add your sugar and caramel, then heat gently for a minute, taking care to stir.
Turn off the heat and allow your mixture to cool down until it is ‘just warm.’ Make sure it’s not too warm (or the eggs will cook), then stir in your beaten eggs, pear chunks and your chocolate chips.
Next, gradually stir in your flour.
Pour your mixture into the tin and shake to even out. Then, add 5-6 blobs of caramel to the top of your mix and swirl lightly with a spoon.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until risen, golden and just set (ovens may vary).
Once baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool until warm. Take your remaining salted caramel (you may need to pop it in the microwave for approx 10 seconds to melt slightly) and drizzle across the top of your blondies.
Pop your warm blondie in bowl and serve with ice cream, or store your bake in a dry, cool place and eat as a sweet treat within 2-3 days.
