Walnut & Chai Spiced Blondies

These chai spiced blondies, dotted with walnuts, are soft, chewy and delightfully spiced with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg and pepper.

– 160 grams butter – 100 grams caster sugar – 100 grams brown sugar – 2 teaspoon vanilla extract – 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon – 1½ teaspoons ground cardamom – ¾ teaspoon ground ginger – ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg – ¼ teaspoon ground pepper – 2 eggs – 160 grams flour – ½ teaspoon salt (table) – ½ teaspoon baking powder – 75 grams walnuts, lightly toasted and chopped


1. Melt the butter in a heat-proof bowl in the microwave. Add in the sugars, and whisk together. Add the eggs and whisk vigorously for at least a minute. 2. Add the flour, salt and baking powder and stir through until just mixed. Add the walnuts and stir through.

3.  Pour into the prepared tin, give a few good bangs on the kitchen counter to remove air bubbles and bake at 180°C for 25 to 30 minutes or until the chai spiced blondie bar has just set. 4. Allow the blondie to cool in the tin for 30 minutes before lifting out using the baking paper slings and cool completely on a wired rack. Slice into 16 to 25 pieces, serve and enjoy!
