These honey and almond blondies could make anyone feel like a baking superstar. I'm far from a baker, so I love really straightforward baking recipes that are totally foolproof - like my crumble cake, for example, where one mixture becomes both a cake and a crumble topping!

These blondies really couldn't be easier to make - mix your dry ingredients, mix your wet ingredients, and combine - so easy, but they end up being completely amazing!

The flavour of the honey really comes through - they're quite sweet, but if you're okay with really sweet desserts, you'll love these. Strangely, despite not having a very sweet tooth and craving desserts very rarely, when I do indulge I like my dessert to be nice and sweet - if you're going to do something, you may as well do it properly, right?

  • ▢ 200 g plain flour (~ 1 cup)
  • ▢ 65 g ground almonds (~ 2/3 cup)
  • ▢ 185 g light brown sugar (~ 1 cup)
  • ▢ 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ▢ 110 g butter (~ 8 tbsp), melted and cooled
  • ▢ 150 ml honey (~ 1/2 cup)
  • ▢ 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ▢ 2 large eggs
  • ▢ 2 tablespoon flaked almonds

Heat the oven to 190°C (Gas Mark 5 / 375°F).
In a large bowl, combine the flour, ground almonds, brown sugar, and baking powder. Mix thoroughly.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, honey, vanilla extract, and eggs.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and fold together to form a thick batter.
Lightly grease a lined baking tin (mine measured 8 x 8 inches), and pour in the batter. Spread it around to smooth out the top, and sprinkle on the flaked almonds.
Bake for around 25 minutes, or until the blondies are just set in the centre. They should still be quite soft. Leave to cool, then cut into 16 squares and serve.
