Warm Blondie Pudding

This fudgy confection from Nigella Lawson’s new cookbook, At My Table, uses ground almonds instead of flour, making the dish gluten-free. The dessert is much more of a stand-alone star than a bake sale treat: Serve pieces individually, topped with crème fraîche and fresh raspberries.   Slideshow: More White Chocolate Recipes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup (6 ounces) plus 2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes, plus more for greasing pan

  • 1 (2 3/4-ounce) white chocolate baking bar, chopped (about 1/2 cup)

  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger

  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature

  • 1 2/3 cups fine almond flour (about 5 7/8 ounce)

  • 1 cup walnuts, roughly chopped

  • Crème fraîche and fresh raspberries, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 340°F. Very lightly butter an 8-inch-square baking dish. Set aside.

  2. Melt butter and chocolate in a large, heavy saucepan over low. Cook, swirling pan occasionally, until mixture forms a sludgy paste in buttery liquid, about 10 minutes. (The chocolate will not completely dissolve in the butter.) Remove from the heat. Add brown sugar and ginger; stir until mixture is glossy and fudgy. Let cool 10 minutes. (Don’t worry if mixture separates as it stands.)

  3. Add eggs; whisk gently until completely incorporated. Add almond flour and chopped walnuts; stir gently to combine.

  4. Pour batter into prepared baking dish, and bake in preheated oven until top is dark brown and crisp around edges, about 50 minutes.

  5. Cool in pan on a wire rack 30 to 40 minutes before cutting and serving with crème fraîche and raspberries.
