Chewy Speculaas Blondies for City Varieties, Leeds!!

We couldn't decide on a cake for Vagina Monologues Cake Club this week so I took to work Edd Kimber's The Boy who Bakes recipe book and we chose Chewy Speculaas Blondies !! A sort of brownie made with lots of brown sugar and hazlenuts!!
The smell from the oven when they were baking was amazing and I only used one pan so washing up was kept to the minimum - bonus!!
Edd even tweeted me a top tip! Makesure the tin cools completely so they can be easily removed and cut up without falling apart - thanks Edd!
They were truly delicious and very morish -


Sorry but I'm not going to give you the recipe - you'll have to go and buy Edd's book - it's brilliant and would make a great Christmas present.                                                                                                    
It was great to be eating these while sat in the dressing room of the newly refurbished City Varieties       Theatre in Leeds. I have very fond memories of watching The Good Olde Days with Leonard Sachs as a  child and was thrilled to be playing such a famous and much loved auditorium.I just had to take some photos of it.Beautiful!!
