Blondes have more fun…
Happy National Blonde Brownie Day!! I am always looking for ways to celebrate something, as our founder Jeanne Bice always said—”Life’s A Party, Celebrate EVERYDAY”!!! So, when I found out that there was a blonde brownie day—I just had to pull out my Kitchen Aid & get baking!!
I found this recipe on Pinterest, and Glen gave it TWO big thumbs up, so I wanted to share it with you. Thank you to- Spaceships & Laser Beams for this recipe.
- 8 tablespoons 1 stick unsalted butter, melted, plus more for pan
- 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush an 8-inch square baking pan with melted butter; line pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on two sides. Also, butter paper.
2. In a large bowl, whisk butter and sugars until smooth. Whisk in egg and vanilla until fully incorporated.
3. Add flour and salt; mix just until moistened (do not over mix). Fold in 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.
4. Transfer batter to prepared pan; pour and smooth top. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips.
5. Bake until top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
6. Set pan on a wire rack and let cool completely. Using parchment overhang, lift cake from pan and transfer to a cutting board; cut into 16 squares.
This recipe was very easy and they were very dense. I believe because there is not levening agent in this recipe. But it is decadent & delicious!! Great with a glass of milk too.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
