Pecan Blondies

Pecan Blondies
225g white chocolate, chopped
115g unsalted buter
100g caster sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
125g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
75g pecans, halved

Preheat the oven to 180ÂșC and line a baking tray. Put 175g of the chocolate and the butter in a heatproof bowl and melt in the microwave. To stop chocolate from burning in the microwave, blast it in short bursts and when it is nearly melted, take it out and stir until smooth. Stir in the sugar and leave to cool for 2 minutes. In another bowl, beat the eggs and vanilla until frothy. Add this to the chocolate mixture and stir well until glossy. Sift in the flour and baking powder and stir in. Add the pecans and remaining 50g of chocolate and stir in. Transfer mixture to the prepared tin and spread evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or a skewer comes out clean. Set the tray on a wire rack and let cool completely before turning out and cutting into squares.
