Done in 45 minutes

Serves 4



what you'll need

115gunsalted butter

190glight brown sugar

2 tspvanilla extract


1/4 tspsalt

130gplain flour

150gdark chocolate chunks

30gdesiccated coconut

50gpecans, chopped

If you don’t know about German Chocolate Cake, get to know! It’s layers of chocolate sponge with a rich pecan and coconut icing. I’m taking those flavours and injecting them into these blondies.


Start by preheating your oven to 175 C. Grease a square brownie tin with butter or line with greaseproof paper

Next, brown your butter. Add it to a pan over medium/high heat, and cook until it starts to foam and turns a toffee brown colour. It should smell nutty and caramel-like.

Remove from the heat and add to a bowl, and allow to cool for 10 minutes

Add the brown sugar and whisk (it should look like wet sand at this point) before adding the egg, vanilla, and salt. Whisk again.

Slowly fold through the flour. Once combined, fold through the chocolate, pecans, and coconut, reserving some for the top.

Spread into the prepared tin, and top with extra mix ins. Pop into the oven for 20-25 minutes, until it's coming away at the edges.

Allow to cool for 30 minutes. Slice into 9 squares, and enjoy!
