This is all happening TOO FAST! July is over and we are in our last month of summer!
This is our last food fight of the summer and I can’t believe that I will be gathering fall recipes soon!
LEMON recipes won last time and you can see them all in the Lemon Team post!
Before we go to the fight, I’d like to share something new to go with this month’s theme. Every Food Fight, I share something special add to the fight. I’m sharing some amazing White Chocolate Blonde Bars that are topped with toasted almonds and white chocolate chips and then drizzled with raspberry reduction. Absolutely heavenly!
White Chocolate Raspberry Blonde Bars
- White Chocolate Blonde Bars:
- 1 egg room temperature
- 1 cup of butter melted
- 3/4 cup of light brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 3 oz of melted baker's white chocolate
- 2/3 cup of chopped toasted almonds
- 2/3 cup of white chocolate chips
- Raspberry Topping:
- 1 cup of fresh raspberries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 tsp of cornstarch mixed with a little bit of cold water
Preheat the oven to 350 and grease an 8x8 baking pan.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk egg, vanilla, brown sugar and melted butter until well combined.
Sift in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk until all incorporated.
Melt the white chocolate in a microwave on half the power, for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each set.
Whisk the melted white chocolate into the batter until all combined.
Spread the batter evenly in the baking pan and bake for 20 - 25 minutes.
After the blondes have been baking for about 15 minutes, add the nuts and white chocolate.
Raspberry topping: in a small sauce pot, bring raspberries and sugar to boil on medium heat while mashing the raspberries with a wooden spoon. Add the cornstarch mixture, while whisking constantly. Cook for a couple of minutes. Strain through a fine strainer to get rid of the solids. Cool until ready to use.
Cool the bars to room temperature and drizzle with raspberry topping.
