Blondies with Brown Butter Delicious, melt-in-the-mouth Brown butter Blondies are perfect to make during the holidays. Also great to give as edible holiday gifts.

December means holidays and holidays means baking. So some of us, food bloggers, are doing this ‘Bake-a-thon’ event this month. Valli, our dear leader and organizer is the brain behind this event. So we will be posting 3 yummy bakes every week. First up are these absolutely delicious brown butter blondies.Blondies with Brown ButterBake-a-thon is one of the yearly blogging events I look forward to. I made these blondies to take to a pot luck Halloween party in October. Recipe is from Food52. Blondies are fair colored cousins of brownies. They probably originated during World War II due to the need to bake without rationed ingredients like chocolate and white sugar.

This brown butter blondie recipe is made almost entirely in the saucepan. One of the comments on the recipe mentioned using brown butter. So I went ahead and used browned butter to make these blondies. Brown butter is an amazing secret ingredient that enhances the flavor of any dish, sweet or savory, that it is added to.

Making brown butter is quite easy, just melt butter until lightly browned in color and smells aromatic and nutty. It is almost like making ghee but doesn’t take as much time to make it. This can be used to make various dishes like pasta sauces, desserts etc.Blondies with Brown ButterIf you haven’t tried browned butter before, this is the perfect recipe to try. Make these for holidays, I am sure you will love it.

Ingredients
  • 12 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 11/3 cups Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 Large Eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup Chocolate chips or chopped nuts
Servings: Blondies
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9"x13" baking pan, line the bottom with parchment paper and grease that lightly as well.
  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan on medium heat. Cook stirring occasionally until the butter starts to brown lightly and smells very fragrant.
  3. Add the brown sugar and stir with a wooden spoon and cook until the sugar has melted and mixture thickens. Turn off the heat and the sugar. Stir until combined. Let the mixture cool slightly.
  4. While the sugar mixture is cooling, whisk flour, baking powder and salt.
  5. When the sugar mixture is slightly cooled, add a third of the flour mixture and mix until combined. Add half of the beaten eggs mixture - stir until combined. Continue with third of the flour mixture and the remaining egg mixture. Finally add the remaining flour and mix until smooth.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. Bake for 20~25 minutes or until the edges are browned and the center is firm to touch. Do not over-bake.
  7. Score the blondies while still warm and let them cool completely in the pan. Once cooled, slice into pieces and serve. Leftovers stay fresh for up to 4~6 days well covered.

  1. Absolutely delicious looking blondies. What a perfect holiday gift it would make. I once tried it with white chocolate in the batter which was amazing. The use of brown butter would surely enhance the flavour.

  2. I have heard Blondie’s but never knew the brown butter thing as never checked a recipe. I love to do diff bakes in diff styles and this is a must try. The Blondie’s look yummy and delicious, perfect with dark coffee.

  3. Blondies are my absolute favorite Pavani and so want to bake this, must now plan on how to replace those eggs..:)..what a fantastic start to the event, looking forward to reading the rest!

  4. this brown butter blondie (BBB) is such a treat for kids and adults alike, I have a version coming up(hopefully the oven will cooperate). a great start to the series, Pavani

  5. I think I need to make these ASAP! I remember baking once with brown butter but it disappeared so fast that I couldn’t even click it! The butter had such a different flavor quotient… I am eyeing these blondies for sure… looks so droolicious!

  6. To be honest, brown butter is something entirely new to me. Is brown butter to be made with yellow butter or white butter. Actually I use homemade white butter in my bakes, so just curious if I could use that.
    Blondies look absolutely delicious. Would love to give it a try

    1. Hi Ritu, brown butter can be made with yellow or white butter. Just cook the butter until lightly browned, nutty and aromatic. This browning gives the butter an amazing taste. Do try it and let me know if you liked it.
