  • 1 orange
  • 3 eggs (M)
  • 50g sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 150g plain flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • A pinch of cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 150g yoghurt
  • 100g salted macadamia nuts, chopped
  • For the topping:

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C top and bottom heat. Line a baking tin (about 28 cm x 19 cm) with baking paper.
  2. For the dough, melt the chocolate on a water bath, stirring occasionally. Remove the chocolate from the heat and stir in the butter until it is completely melted. Set aside to cool.
  3. Rinse, dry and then zest the orange peel. Beat the eggs with sugar and honey until creamy. Add the chocolate mixture and ½ teaspoon of the orange peel and stir well.
  4. Add flour, spices and baking soda to the mixture and mix briefly with the hand mixer to make a smooth dough.
  5. Fold the yoghurt and the chopped nuts with a spoon. Pour the dough into the lined tin and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Allow the blondie to cool and release from the tin.
  6. For the topping, heat the condensed milk with brown sugar and butter in a small saucepan in a pan until all the ingredients have completely dissolved. Remove the pot from the oven. Carefully stir in the cinnamon, cloves and the ground speculoos. Allow to cool completely at room temperature.
  7. Then in a mixing bowl add the butter, sift in the icing sugar. Stir in the cooled speucloos mixture, vanilla extract and cinnamon and mix until a smooth cream is obtained.
  8. Cover the blondie with the topping and sprinkle with a little sea salt before serving.
