What Is A Blondie?

A blondie is a type of dessert that is basically a brownie, but without the chocolate. Blondies are flavored with vanilla, and they can be enjoyed plain or with added ingredients such as chocolate chips, butterscotch, or nuts. The perfect blondie should be chewy and sweet, not soft and airy like a cake.

Lining my baking pan with parchment paper gives me this rustic shape, and I am kinda there for it. Loving that rustic feel. This is the 9×13 size pan, I included directions for both this size and the 8×8 size.

Why Brown Butter?

Browning butter is actually a simple way to elevate many baked goods! It creates a beautiful aroma and flavor that can not be duplicated by anything else. Almost nutty or caramel-ly. But without any artificial ingredients or sugar… yet

What Is Brown Butter?

Browned Butter is the product after you have boiled the water out of the butter, and the butter solids start to toast, or turn brown. Hence the name Brown butter. It can be used in savory dishes like pastas, or in sweet dishes like cookies, and these blondies!

How To Brown Butter?

The hardest part to browning butter is to stay close! It can bubble over quickly! Start with a pot much larger than the butter amount you want to brown. Put the pot on Medium to Medium-High heat, and keep stirring the butter. It will start to bubble, then foam. When it foams you will notice it climbing the pan, make sure to keep stirring at this point so it doesn’t burn. You should be able to smell the heavenly aroma. Once the butter solids have turned brown, remove from heat.

I love milling my own flour for my baked goods, because I know we are getting nutrients! Also, I know what goes into my family’s food, and the less preservatives, the better!

Instructions To Make Fresh Milled Flour Blondies

  1. Firstly, to brown the butter- In a large pot (much larger than the butter amount you want to brown), on Medium to Medium-High heat, and put in the butter. Stay close, and stir often. It will bubble, then foam. When it foams you will notice it climbing the pan, make sure to keep stirring at this point so it doesn’t burn. Once the butter solids have turned brown, remove from heat.
  2. Add brown sugar & stir until combined. It may look a little greasy at this point, but that is normal. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  3. While the butter/sugar are cooling, mill the flour.
  4. Add salt & baking powder to the flour and stir to combine.
  5. Preheat oven to 350*F.
  6. Grease or line a 9×13 pan. (If you want to bake in an 8×8, they will be thicker and need to bake for longer.)
  7. Add Vanilla & eggs to the cooled butter & sugar mixture, mix to combine.
  8. Then add flour mixture into the wet ingredients. Mix just until combined. Don’t over mix.
  9. If you want optional add-ins like chocolate chips or nuts, fold them in at this point.
  10. Pour & spread evenly in your lined or greased baking pan.
  11. Bake for 25-35 minutes for 9×13 (OR 30-40 minutes for a 8×8)
  12. Allow to cool completely before cutting! They will seem loose while they are hot, they will set up as they cool. Put a wire rack under the baking sheet to speed up the cooling process.

    I made this recipe today with hard white and it did great! I used somewhere in the ballpark of 1/4 cup less flour and am very happy with the texture. I also used mostly vanilla extract with a little almond extract thrown in bc my husband loves that flavor and it was great. It was my first time browning butter and this recipe and your video were so helpful and the brown butter wasn’t as scary as I thought! Thanks!

    1. Yay! I am so happy to hear that! Yes, I was also intimidated to brown butter the first time I did it, because I only ever saw it on fancy cooking shows, etc. But, once I did it, I was hooked! Now, I know what to look for, and it is amazing! I like to use it in a lot of my recipes when I can. Thanks so much!
