My grandsons visited this weekend, and I had no treat to offer them. These blonde brownies were easy to make and brought forth questions of, “Can I have another one?”
3/4 cup brown sugar (I used light)
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
A pinch of salt
Combine sugar and butter, beat until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, beat until combined.
Sift together flour and baking powder. Stir into wet ingredients and mix with spoon until combined.
Spread in 9 inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
I don’t have this size so I use a Pyrex 7 x 11 glass pan and it works fine. An 8 inch square would probably work too, just add a minute or two to the baking time.
I add sprinkles or jimmies to the top before baking, or you can stir 1/2 cup chopped nuts into the batter. One of these days I’m going to try some hulled sunflower seeds on top.
