Ingredients For classic blondies

  • 2 c
    all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp
    baking powder
  • ½ tsp
  • 1 c
    unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 c
    light brown sugar or dark brown sugar, packed
  • ½ c
    granulated sugar
  • 2 lg
    large eggs room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoon tsp

  • 1 1/4 c
    white chocolate chips
  • ½ c
    walnuts or pecans (optional)

How To Make classic blondies

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a 9×13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line the pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang to remove the baked blondies easily.
  • 2
    In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • 3
    In a large bowl, stir together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, beaten eggs, and vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in several intervals stirring just until combined.
  • 4
    Fold in 1 cup of white chocolate chips and nuts if using.
  • 5
    Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the top with the remaining white chocolate chips.
  • 6
    Bake for 23-27 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned and they start to pull away from the sides of the pan. A toothpick inserted into the middle should come out mostly clean with just a few moist crumbs. Let the blondies fully cool before slicing.
