    Muscovado, macadamia & cranberry blondies

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes, plus cooling
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes
    • Total time: 55 minutes

    Makes: 16 squares


    150g unsalted butter
    90g caster sugar
    125g Billington’s Dark Muscovado Natural Unrefined Cane Sugar
    250g plain flour 
    ½ tsp baking powder 
    ½ tsp fine salt 
    ½ tsp ground cinnamon
    75g macadamia nut halves
    100g porridge oats
    75g dried cranberries
    2 medium British Blacktail Free Range Eggs
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    50g white chocolate, roughly chopped


    1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4; line a 23 x 23cm square cake tin with parchment. Melt the butter and both sugars in a saucepan over a low heat, stirring to combine. Take off the heat and allow to cool slightly. Meanwhile, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nuts, oats and cranberries in a large mixing bowl.

    2. Beat the eggs together, then whisk into the butter and sugar, along with the vanilla extract. Beat into the dry ingredients until combined, then tip into the prepared tin and bake for 20-25 minutes until risen and golden on top. Allow to cool completely in the tin.

    3. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave or by putting it in a bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Drizzle with a spoon over the traybake. Allow to set for 5 minutes before slicing into 16 squares.
