Let’s Breakdown the Ingredients!

This blondie recipe is packed with flavours that make this brownie irresistible! Here are a few ingredients that bring it all together: 

Browned butter is the main ingredient of this dessert. Browned butter adds a deeper nutty and caramelized flavour to any recipe. 

For the perfect brownie consistency, using both brown sugar and white sugar should give this brownie the perfect structure, not too fudge and not too chewy! 

To add some texture and additional flavours, chopped chocolate and pecans are used. The chopped chocolate gives this blondie that sweet and chocolatey taste everyone loves and adds a nutty and woody flavour with the pecans.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 and put parchment paper inside an 8X8 square pan. Spray with cooking spray.
  • Browned butter is a secret to a happy life. It's dead easy and delicious. All you need to do is put a 3/4 cup of butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Allow the butter to melt and bubble away until it turns amber and has a nutty aroma. Once that happens take off the heat and let cool for 5 mins.

  • Now dry ingredients: add in the flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Be careful not to overwork the dough here. Just mix until everything is incorporated.
  • Next up, fold in the chocolate and pecans. Save a couple tbsp of each to stick on the top once the dough is in the pan.
  • Spoon the dough mixture into the pan and pat down flat. Press the left-over chocolate and pecans onto the top of the blondie.
  • Bake for 28-30 mins. Remove from the oven and let cool in pan for 10 minutes. After that remove from pan and again let cool for another 10 mins. Cut them up, get a cup of coffee, and go to town!!! These are SO GOOD!
