We’re officially in Autumn now and its time to share all the best autumnal recipes – starting with these apple pie blondies.
I’ve taken the classic blondie we know and love, then gave it a little twist. It’s nothing crazy, I had some left over apple sauce in the fridge that was taking up space and needed to be used up, so while shopping – I found these mini apple pies and there was 9 in a box, which is perfect for the amount of portions I usually slice my blondies into… That’s a sign if anything.
If you like apple pie and white chocolate blondes, this is probably a good recipe for you – so why don’t you try it and share the results with your friends, family and others to celebrate? Plus isn’t it nice to share, right?
Anyway, lets get started, shall we?
200g golden caster sugar.
235g plain flour.
1/2 tsp salt.
1.5 tsp vanilla extract.
200g blonde chocolate chips.
Chunky apple sauce (I used homemade but feel free to use shop bought).
9 mini apple pies (I used the Mr Kipling branded ones but feel free to se whichever yo can get your hands on).
Before you get into making the blondies, you’ll want to do some prep work. Start by weighing up all of your ingredients, line your 9 inch square tin and preheat your oven to 180˚c/350˚f and get any equipment you intend on using.
Into a heatproof bowl, place your butter and blonde chocolate and melt them in a microwave in 10 second intervals, try your best not to get the mixture too hot. If this happens, the mixture may split.
Add in the sugar and whisk until its fully incorporated – I opted to sed gold caster sugar here as it works very well with white chocolate and apple but feel free to use regular caster sugar.
Now you can add the eggs and whisk until they have been fully worked into the mixture – now is also the perfect time to add in the vanilla extract.
Take the flour and chocolate chips, then add them into the mixture – mix/fold them in until they are fully incorporated.
Grab your lined 9×9 tin and pour your blondie batter into the tin and level it out as best you can.
Now take the apple sauce and place dollops over the top of the blonde batter and use something like a butter knife to swirl the spread around and it should have swirls on top of the batter.
Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes or until a tester comes out clean when inserted into the centre
Once they are fully baked, remove from the oven and finish them off. Take the mini apple pies and place them on top, you might have to use a little force as the blondies have baked.
Allow them to cool down fully before you try and remove them from the tin. Once completely cooled down, place the tin into the fridge (this is to help them be as dense and fudgy as possible) overnight or until the following day.
