Cranberry Pistachio Blondies [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan

Serves

15 blondies

Ingredients

  • 100g (3.5 oz) firm tofu
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) almond milk
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) apple sauce
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) rapeseed (canola) oil
  • 80g (1/2 cup) caster sugar
  • 150g (1 cup) self-raising flour
  • 50g (1/3 cup) dried cranberries
  • 40g (1/3 cup) shelled pistachios
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Preparation

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC (356ºF). Line a cake tin (roughly 20 x 20 cm/7.87 x 7.87 inches; mine was heart-shaped, so it’s hard to judge accurately) with baking parchment.
  2. Process the tofu, almond milk, oil, vanilla, spices and apple sauce in a blender until smooth.
  3. In a bowl, combine the liquid with the caster sugar and flour. Fold in the dried fruit and pistachios.
  4. Pour the batter into the lined tin and bake for 25 minutes. Keep an eye on your cake; if it browns too quickly on top, lower the heat and bake for longer.
  5. Cool on a wire rack. The centre should be gooey but the outside fairly firm.

Notes

I list dried cranberries in the recipe, but I used sultanas for the blondies I photographed, as you can see from the photo. I have tried them with dried cranberries, though, and I much prefer them.

AUTHOR & RECIPE DETAILS

After turning vegan, I discovered a particular talent for baking delicious cruelty-free cakes and cookies. It was then that my friends named me ‘The Vegan Cookie Fairy’ and my blog was born. I find happiness in preparing and eating food that is good for my body and soul — but cats and yoga help, too.
