Lemon and Gin Blondies

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I come out the other end of Christmas with a bit of a chocolate hangover (says the girl who just bought a load of Malteaser Tree Chocs in the January Sales…).  Alright, it’s a very brief hangover, but I definitely start craving summery sweet things and cakes with a bit of a zing to perk me up on those gloomy January days, and these Blondies are kind of like a treat-sized Lemon Collins. 🙂

Lemon and Gin Blondies

Ingredients

  • Zest and Juice of 2 Lemons
  • 150g Caster Sugar
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 150g Self Raising Flour
  • 150ml Gin
  • Powdered Sugar to dust
  • Sprigs of Thyme to Garnish
  1. Preheat the oven to 180° and line a square baking tin with grease proof paper.
  2. In bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, lemon juice and zest, gin and flour, then pour into the baking tin.
  3. Bake for about 30 minutes (the middle will be gooey, but will set once cooled).  Leave to cool, then cut into rectangles.
  4. Dust with powdered sugar and garnish with a sprig of thyme.

I bet these would work well in the summer with some lavender – I might have to do an encore on this one.  Have a great week everyone! X
