What with it being Afternoon Tea Week, we thought we'd get experimenting with some of our favourite baking recipes, by giving them a teapigs twist. First up, is an office favourite - matcha blondies! (brownies but with white chocolate - yum!) Blondies on their own are pretty darn special, but throw in some of our superpower green tea and you've got something otherworldly on your hands...trust us!
Here’s the recipe:
200g unsalted butter
200g white chocolate - chopped
250g soft brown sugar or muscovado sugar
3 free range eggs
200g plain flour (although we always use self-raising)
Pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla essence (optional)
3 tsp teapigs organic matcha
Heat over to 180C/fan 160C/gas4
Line a tin – approx. 25 x 25
Melt the butter in a pan and cook it gently for about 5 mins until it turns golden
Set it aside and then add half the white chocolate – stir it until smooth
Beat the sugar and eggs together til they turn pale
Add the flour, salt, vanilla and the cooled chocolate butter and fold it all in until it’s even
Pour the mixture in to the tin then scatter the rest of the chocolate over it
Back for 40-45 mins or until it’s risen all over.
Feel free to add in almonds or macadamia nuts for an extra crunch.
