Raspberry picking

When we went pumpkin picking, we also picked some raspberries. They are just coming to the end of their season here so they aren't quite as sweet as the raspberries that you might pick in the middle of the summer, but they were still lovely.


So, I thought I ought to bake with them to bring out their sweetness. I decided to make white chocolate and raspberry blondies and they were so so delicious. The crust of the blondie was really crunchy and chewy, with the inside being super moist and gooey. What a perfect combination!

The recipe is available here.  (God, I love the bbc good food website! Could spend hours browsing it)

  13. I've never heard of blondies! I'm guessing they're like brownies but with white chocolate?

    I could spend hours on foodgawker, so many delicious desserts...

    Love raspberries, when I was a kid my grandparents forced me to pick raspberries at their vegetable and fruit garden, I used to hate it because I was scared of bugs and spiders in the bushes... lol.
