Gluten free white chocolate blondies

Updated: Jul 22, 2020

Blondies are a bit of a signature of mine, I got the idea to use rice flour after trying a blondies in a cafe and shyly asking the owner what the recipe was. After much adapting and tweaking, this is my failsafe bake.

Wheat flour is what can make a blondie/ brownie too cakey in texture. In this recipe a combination of rice flour and crumbly ground almonds make for the perfect composition: Chewy sticky inner and a sugar-cracked crust.

Makes 15-20 blondies depending how big you require


  • 300g unsalted butter

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 400g light or dark brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence or paste

  • 200g rice flour

  • 100g ground almonds

  • 2 teaspoons fine salt

  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • 170g good quality white chocolate (chopped into small chunks)


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4/ 350°F

  • Grease and line a 30x20cm baking tin with baking parchment

  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat (if you have the patience leave until the butter catches slightly and turns a nutty brown but this is not necessary)

  • Set the butter aside to cool slightly

  • Whisk the eggs and sugar together until pale then whisk in the butter and vanilla essence

  • With a spatula or wooden spoon mix in the dry ingredients and follow with the chocolate chunks and salt

  • Put in the prepared tin and bake for about 40 minutes

  • Leave to cool down in the tin then cut into pieces

  • Serve with a dusting of icing sugar, then I added raspberries and chopped nuts
