OMG! This is so incredibly good! I’ve never really liked blondies but, being brownies the only chocolate cake I truly appreciate, I decided to give it another go. And, boy, was it worth it! Seriously. The smell while it’s baking is amazing and the texture… oh, simply divine!
It’s originally a Rachel Allen’s recipe but I was not in the mood to make praline and I didn’t have almonds, so I used walnuts from the freezer 🙂
(adapted from Rachel Allen’s Banoffee Blondies)
100g unsalted butter
225g white chocolate (buttons or chopped)
175g muscovado sugar
1 egg, beaten
200g very ripe bananas, mashed (about 2)
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
100g walnuts, roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 180°C and line the base and sides of a 20cm square tin with parchment.
Place butter and chocolate in a bowl and microwave in 30 second bursts until butter is melted. Stir to melt chocolate.
Pour mixture into a large bowl and beat in sugar, eggs and bananas. Stir in the walnuts. Sift in the remaining ingredients and fold in thoroughly to mix.
Pour batter into prepared tin and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until just set and golden on top.
Allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, carefully remove the cake with the help of the parchment and cut into squares for serving.

I am learning new things from you. Walnuts can be kept in the freezer? I usually just buy a handful and use them pronto, so I never have left overs. This recipe sounds delicious. If only I could taste…that means I have to make an effort and bake. Let me do some planning!
They certainly can 🙂 As well as any other nuts. They keep very well. I used to have a pile of them after Christmas only waiting to go rancid – no two people can eat that much nut after the festive season!
I always need new ways to use up brownies and this looks like one of the most delicious!
Thank you, Lucy!
Sounds like the perfect combo! I love everything banana, seriously! Love the blog and hope to come back soon!
Thank you, Kloé! You’re such a sweetie!
I have never made blondies but you have persuaded me to try them. Lovely bake Erika.
Yay!!! Thank you, Maggie! I’m sure you’ll like it 🙂
What a healthy yet super delicious blondie idea 😀
I love the flavour of bananas in all dessert!

Thank you, Uru! Bananas are really delicious and healthy – these blondies not so much healthy but delicious indeed 🙂
Thanks for stopping by my blog. It’s great to meet you.
I think we’re two peas in a pod with the brownie cake thing. Just cocoa in chocolate cakes makes me shudder. Weirdest thing is that I’ve never even tried a blondie yet. Must correct that soon. 🙂
Good to know I’m not alone 😊 This recipe turned out incredibly good both times I made it. So if you like bananas, it’s a good start 😊 Thanks for stopping by, Lisa!
Look so yum, Erika! Btw, have you had the chance to check out Fiesta Friday? It’s a blog party I host. Would love for you to join!
I will! Promise 🙂 This post was scheduled before I knew about Fiesta Friday. I’ll try to make something more Fiesta-worthy this week and will link to it 😉
Okey dokey, sounds good! Anything you make is always Fiesta-worthy! 🙂
