I've just got back from a weekend away in West Wales. The occasion was our friend's 30th birthday, and 14 of us rented out a large house in a little village called Aberdovey. It was such a beautiful place full of lambs frolicking in the fields, quaint houses painted in bright colours and gardens filled with wild flowers. I'm such a city girl and sometimes I find the countryside quite daunting as I don't really understand it. I'm so used to convenience, modern technology and city life. But I really enjoyed myself and would definitely go back! I wanted to take along some treats for everyone and I found this recipe in Olive Magazine, and it used custard creams. I made it using the custard creams a few weeks ago and it turned out great so I wanted to try it again but this time with golden oreos!
I started by melting 175g butter, 200g light brown sugar, 125g golden caster sugar and 4 tbsp custard powder on a low heat.
I let it cool for 5 minutes then whisked in 2 eggs and 2 tsp vanilla extract.
I broke up the golden oreos. I used 18 of them.
I added a pinch of salt, 250g self raising flour, 150g white chocolate broken into chunks and a third of the biscuits.
I poured the mixture into a lined baking pan and sprinkled the rest of the biscuits on top.
I baked the blondies on 180C/160C Fan/350F/Gas Mark 4 for 30 minutes. I left them to cool in the tin.
I removed them and sliced them up. They were so sweet and gooey, and every other bite you come across a chunk of white chocolate or a piece of golden oreo. They went down really well with everyone this weekend!
I am entering these into myself and Cakeyboi's challenge Treat Petite, where the theme is favourite biscuits, sweets and chocolates.
And into the Sunday Fitness & Food Link Up hosted by Ilka's Blog and Marathons & Motivations.
