The Ultimate Blondie - Real Simple

Hands on: 10 minutes

  • Yield: 16 servings


  • 1 cup(s) butter, melted, plus more for pan
  • 2 1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour spooned and leveled
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon(s) pure vanilla extract


1. Heat oven to 350 F. Butter an 8 inch square baking pan. Line the pan with a piece of parchment paper, leaving an overhang on 2 sides; butter the parchment.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together the butter, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined (do not overmix). Fold in any mix-ins, if desired:

1 cup dried fruit and 2 T candied ginger

16 miniature chocolate peanut butter cups (9 grams each)

3/4 cup each chocolate chips and chopped pecans

4. Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick comes out clean, 40-45 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan before lifting out. Cut into 16 squares.
