Ingredients You'll Need

Before we get started, let's gather all the ingredients you'll need:

  • 1 cup (225g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups (300g) brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (175g) chocolate chips

Substitution Options

  • For a dairy-free version, use vegan butter and dairy-free chocolate chips.
  • To make them gluten-free, substitute with a 1-to-1 gluten-free baking flour.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Ready to bake? Follow these simple steps:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients in a large bowl. Combine the melted butter and brown sugar, whisking until smooth. Add in the eggs and vanilla extract, and whisk again until fully incorporated.
  3. Prepare the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring just until combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips. Use a spatula to gently fold the chocolate chips into the batter.

Baking and Cooling

  1. Transfer the batter to your prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the blondies are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.
  3. Cool the blondies in the pan on a wire rack for at least 20 minutes before cutting. This ensures they are set properly and makes for easier slicing.

Serving and Storing

  1. Cut the blondies into squares or rectangles. You can make them as large or small as you like.
  2. Serve with a scoop of ice cream or a drizzle of caramel sauce for an extra indulgent treat.
  3. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. For longer storage, freeze them for up to 3 months.

Variations and Customizations

Feel like getting creative? Here are some ideas to customize your blondies:

  • Nutty Delight: Add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts (like walnuts or pecans) to the batter.
  • Fruity Twist: Mix in 1/2 cup of dried cranberries or raisins.
  • Decadent Drizzle: Once baked, drizzle the top with melted white or dark chocolate.
