Another of the simple and quick desserts, Blondies are so much love. If you don’t like chocolate don’t add cocoa powder/chocolate to your brownies and add in the flavor you love and you have your dessert with you. I made some more jam! That mango-raspberry if you remember… (he he! I know you would be thinking this lady has stuck to jam’s, but it is soo good and hardly takes any time and the best part – it is homemade 🙂 ). These can be made with any jam you like, honestly any flavour you prefer. You can go for peanut butter, apple and walnut crumble, any berries, peaches, endless. I also added some nuts to give a nice crunch to it. Ready in 15 mins, these prove to be perfect even for breakfast.
Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 15 mins
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
½ cup powdered sugar
1 stick or 115 gms of unsalted butter at room temp
4-5 tbsp jam – you can use any you like
½ cup roughly chopped walnuts
1/3 cup luke warm milk
Piping bag – I made it of parchment paper (it is very simple to make,see this)
1 tsp vanilla essence
- Preheat you oven to 200 deg C.
- In a bowl, sieve together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder and set aside.
- In another bowl, beat the sugar and butter together till a little fluffy. Add vanilla, milk and walnuts and mix.
- Now combine together the dry mixture with the wet in 2 parts and mix with a spatula. Do not over-mix, only until it forms a smooth batter and no dry lumps. If you require, add more milk.
- Spray some oil on your baking pan and line it with parchment paper on sides as well as the base. Pour the batter onto it and tap for any air bubbles.
- Now carefully fill your cone with the jam and make 1 cm wide straight line vertically (from north to south). Take a toothpick and cut them through horizontally and in alternate an direction, that is if you start from the north – first line from west to east, then east to west below it and so on.
- Another way of making swirls is to drop spoon’s of jam on the batter at some distance and then with a toothpick just randomly cross them in circular motions like forming a shape of number 8. However, there can be many ways of making swirls. I would say, just go creative and do how you like it. you can make it absolutely the way you like. It really does not have to be symmetrical. It somehow always looks pretty. 🙂
- After you’re done with the swirls, bake it for 15 mins at 160 deg C.
- Check with a toothpick to come out clean. Cut in pieces and serve warm.
