Strawberry Blondie – White Chocolate Brownie

Have you ever been total in love with a recipe and repeated it again and again, eventually to find that you wanted the same treat in a slightly different flavour.  That is how I came to design my strawberry malted blondie.

A Slice of Strawberry Malted Milk Blondie

I over indulged in the David Lebotviz dulce de leche brownie and whilst I so wanted the delicious sweet treat, I need a change of flavour.

So what is the opposite of caramel… that would be strawberry, so why not add strawberry jam, what is the opposite of dutch process cocoa powder… perhaps malted milk powder, and what is the opposite of milk chocolate… white chocolate of course.  Then added some strawberries to the top for good measure and the strawberry malted blondie was born.

To perfect this recipe I have cooked the blondie at least four times now.  The first time I did a direct swap of ingredients as mentioned above to the Dulce de Leche Brownie. Whilst it was deliciously lush and moist, I concede that it had too much moisture and not enough body. The dessert was awesome hot as a pudding with ice-cream but it would never cut is as a brownie.

After some adapting and modifying, think I may have perfected the recipe.  It reminds me of a Strawberry Malted Milkshake.

About Julie


  1. It looks very pretty and I’m sure it would be really delicious. Great experimenting in the kitchen xx

  2. I’m glad you did the playing around for us so we could just jump to the end result! I think I’d like these even more than chocolate brownies – strawberries go so beautifully with white chocolate and in baked goods.

  3. Ooh a strawberry malted milkshake? No way!! 😀 Instant love!

  4. Hello blondie I am in love with 😀

  5. I don’t think I’d ever tire of chocolate and caramel, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for strawberry. What do you mean by malted milk powder? Milo??

  6. I have a sweet tooth today and this looks especially good. Awesome share!

  7. So pretty! I actually don’t have a sweet tooth so caramel and I don’t really work out. Strawberry sounds like a good change though 🙂

  8. I only recently found out that a blondie was a white chocolate brownie.. haha i dont know where i have been all this time!! 😛

  9. I far prefer blondies to brownies, and your malt idea is GENIUS.

  10. Yes, I have many times. I absolutely love how you lightened up and made a perfect spring, for us in the Northern Hemisphere, treat. I’ve never made a blondie and can see how much I’ve been missing out. This looks so delicous!

  11. Perfection, Julie! White chocolate is a fave. And blondies are oh so au courant according to Saveur Magazine or maybe it’s Bon Apetit. At any rate, your desserts look and sound delish!

  12. I can’t make up my mind if I like your blondie more or your dulce de leche brownie more 🙂 What the heck…I like them both!!! hehe

  13. So glad you didn’t give up! This sounds amazing and the idea of adding the malt powder was genius 🙂

  14. What a fabulous recipe – lovely when you can experiment in the kitchen and it turns out so well.
