Nutella blondie. The perfect sweet to share.

Nutella Blondies

There are occasions I find it hard to answer the question ” What to cook?“.

Not sure about you, but for me, it is not easy to find the perfect pot luck item(s), especially if your fellow guests are from other backgrounds. Different taste, preference and food requirements make it hard to decide on a menu item, especially savory ones. I have had occasions where my guests could not stand coriander (cilantro), spring onions, or even wontons.

The worst occasion was perhaps when one asked for `two-minute´ noodles instead of trying an almost perfect wonton short soup. Politeness matter aside, I realized that this girl was used to KFC and the like and had never got any exposure to other cuisines (Hello, are you living in the world?). So, well… for pot luck, I normally choose to bring desserts. Things like chocolate, caramel popcorns and choc chip cookies can hardly fail.

And I can promise this nutella blondie is always a winner, especially among kids. Actually, anything nutella is normally a guaranteed winner, even with me, who doesn´t love it that much. :) I have to thanks the gorgeous Johanna for sharing this recipe. Actually, trust me, jump on her blog. All the old-fashioned and home-made treats she made were absolutely delicious. I have made several recipes from her and always love the results.

* 250g butter
* 3 eggs
* 2 cups dark brown sugar
* ½ cup castor sugar
* ½ tsp salt
* 1 tsp vanilla
* 2½ cups plain flour
* 1 tsp baking powder
* ½ tsp bicarb soda
* 220g jar (about 1 cup) Nutella (or any chocolate hazelnut spread)

Preheat the oven to 170 C (325 F) degrees. Line a (9´´ x 13´´) lamington tin with baking paper.

Melt butter in a large heat proof bowl in the microwave. Add eggs, brown sugar, castor sugar, salt, vanilla, flour, baking powder and bicarb soda. It will be quite a thick batter.

Spoon batter into the prepared tin and smooth with the back of a spoon. Dollop nutella over the batter. Use a skewer to swirl it through the batter and make lovely designs.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until the batter is puffed and golden but still a little moist in the middle. They will collapse slightly once out of the oven.

Cool in tin overnight and then slice into squares or bars.

    Wow! Scrumptious! And what to make? What to cook? Just putting all of my energy into making these luscious Nutella blondies is enough! Everybody else can fend for themselves! Love them!

    Oh beautiful :) I like nutella anything so i definitely don't have to be a child to like this :) Is that a petal I see in the tea? x

  3. Agnes says:

    Gasp! You know someone who doesn't like wontons?? That makes me feel sad. 😉

    I consider 'making other people happy' as one of the hardest tasks to ever undertake. Picky eaters will always have something to complain about, no matter what anyone makes for them. Most people are just happy that someone has taken the time and energy to make something, and have the heart to share it.

  5. Rosa's Yummy Yums says:

    Mmmmhh, irresistible! I adore Nutella and iam a big Blondie fan. Terrific!

  7. shaz says:

  20. tigerfish says:

    I always have those "what to cook" moments, seriously. Then I fall back to my regular-dishes which can be super boring :O ….

  21. Hannah says:

    Oh man does that ever look good! The edges are so nice and crispy, while the center remains perfectly soft… I'm really an edge-person, if you couldn't tell. 😉 Though I usually cut them off for photos, this one is really making my mouth water!

    bringing sweets to a potluck is always a guaranteed win! too many people have food limitations/allergies but everyone always makes room for dessert. :)

    Yummie, I am a big fan of Nutella, therefore these blondies are just right for me…they sure look So So good!

    Nutella in anything is a winner! Can't believe you had someone turn down wontons in favour of 2 min noodles!

    My kids love blondies and nutella but I never thought of having these two wonderful things combined into one recipe… oh that looks sooo good!!!

  40. Shirley @ Kokken69 says:

    I usually have another problem when preparing for potluck- I wanted to cook everything and can't pin down which one to bring- you see I tend to treat my friends as guinea pigs to test my cooking … Hahaha… Your nutella blondie looks like a winner!

  41. Zara says:
