Soft and fudgy White Chocolate and Raspberry Blondies that will melt in your mouth. Easily made and baked in less than an hour, just in time for afternoon tea!
A blondie is like a Chocolate Brownie but without cocoa powder and chocolate. Blondies contain brown sugar and vanilla extract, which brownies often do not. They are still as rich and chewy, and like a brownie, you can add some additions.
White chocolate and raspberries are my all-time favourite flavour combinations, so I included them in this recipe. I also have a delicious recipe on my blog for Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins, which is worth checking out.

- The classic mix of white chocolate and raspberries.
Note: The full ingredients and quantities are shown in the recipe card below.
White chocolate - use white chocolate baking chips or a white chocolate bar broken into small pieces.
Raspberries - use fresh or frozen. If frozen, don't let them thaw first, otherwise, the juices run into the blondie, which makes them bright pink.
Butter - it is best to use unsalted butter in baking, as it gives you complete control over the taste of your recipe.
Flour - use plain flour / all-purpose flour.
Step by Step Directions
Note: This is a summary of the instructions. The full ingredients and instructions are shown in the recipe card below.
Step 1. Line a 20cm (8") square tin with baking paper/parchment paper. Allow enough paper to overhang the sides so the blondie can easily be lifted out of the tin when baked.
Step 2. Melt the butter over low heat and stir until it has melted. Add the sugars, eggs, and vanilla extract and stir well to combine. Allow the mixture to cool for 5 minutes.
Steps 3-4. In a large bowl, add the dry ingredients and then pour in the butter mixture. Mix well until combined.
Steps 5-6. Add the white chocolate chips and raspberries, and gently stir with a dessert spoon to combine.
Steps 7-8. Spoon the batter in the prepared tin and smooth the top with a spoon. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes until the top is golden and a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin.
