Today is January 22, which means that it is National Blonde Brownie Day!
Blonde brownies, often referred to as blondies, are a bit of a spin on your traditional brownie. Whilst the recipes are pretty similar, the big difference in a blondie is that you use brown sugar instead of cocoa!
To celebrate National Blonde Brownie Day, we decided to share a blondie recipe with you!
Ingredients (enough for 6 blondies)
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease a 9×9-inch baking pan.
- Measure 1 cup sifted flour. Add baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Sift again. Add 1/2 cup chopped nuts. Mix well and set aside.
- Stir the brown sugar into the melted butter and mix well. Cool slightly.
- Mix the beaten egg and vanilla into the brown sugar mixture. Add flour mixture, a little at a time, mixing just until combined.
- Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes.
If you fancy shaking up the recipe a bit, you can substitute the nuts for white chocolate or chocolate chips, butterscotch or toffee. Alternatively, you could go all out and add a bit of everything.
These blondies are pretty sweet as they are, thanks to the brown sugar. However, if you’ve got an extra sweet tooth, you can also add some frosting of your choice!
