Maple and Pecan Blondies

Maple syrup, pecans, white chocolate, vanilla. No other words should be needed to convince you to try these beautiful blondies!

Prep time: 20 Mins
Baking time: 40-45 Mins
150g Unsalted Butter (Cut into small cubes)
150g White Chocolate
150g Maple Syrup
3 Large Eggs
1tsp Vanilla Extract
200g Ground Almonds
25g Plain Flour
1/2tsp Baking Powder
100g Pecan Nuts (Roughly chopped)

This one is easy as always, so let's get going! Preheat the oven to 170C/325F/Gas 3, grease a 26x19cm rectangular tin and line with baking paper. Melt together the butter and white chocolate, in either the microwave or over a bain-marie then pour into a large mixing bowl. Stir through the maple syrup, then beat in the eggs along with the vanilla extract. Mix in the ground almonds, then sift in the flour with the baking powder and do the same. Fold through the chopped pecans, then spoon the batter into your prepared tin and bake into the centre of the oven for 40-45 minutes, until a metal skewer comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the sponge. When it's cooked remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for an hour.

Remove from the tin and peel off the paper. Slice into squares or rectangles and serve. You can enjoy these warm or cold and they keep great too! So no excuse not to give them a go!
