August Recipe: Blondies

It’s time for another recipe! First, the recipe. Then, me blathering onward about my occasionally questionable culinary capabilities and the memories this particular feast holds for me.

  • The Ingredients
    • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
    • 3/4 cup white sugar
    • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 2 large eggs
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
    • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts (optional)
  • The Way of Preparing
    1. Oven to 350°F, 177°C, gas mark 5
    2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sugars, then add the melted butter and mix until well combined.
    3. Whisk in the vanilla extract and eggs until one smooth mixture.
    4. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt; mix until just combined.
    5. Add whatever mix-ins you are adding before panning.
    6. Line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some for ease of removal. Scoop and spread the batter into the pan.
    7. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned and the top is set.
  • Notes
    • Add whatever mix-ins strike your fancy or whatever you have on hand.

All right, so I only make these with a certain caveat: I don’t have to eat them. Heh. I will make them for others, but unless they have butterscotch chips or white chocolate and macadamia nuts in them, I won’t partake. But that’s me.

Happy baking!
