Butterscotch Blondies

2 cups light brown sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
2 eggs, at room temperature
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour or spray with cooking spray with flour one 8 inch square baking pan. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, throughly combine the sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture until just blended. Pour batter in pan. Bake 40-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the middle of the pan comes out almost clean. It may seema little gooey in the middle but it will set up as it cools. Cool in pan on wire rack then cut and serve.

My thoughts:

A great dessert for those crazy people who prefer their sweets devoid of chocolate. These blondies are butterscotch-y and slightly chewy.


  1. omg, i love butterscotch and blondie! awesome.

  2. This is one of my favorite recipes. They’re also wonderful with pecans.

  3. Blondies are one of my very favorite sweets (even though I am also a chocolate lover). How can you go wrong with butter and brown sugar as the primary flavors? Yum.

  4. not sure what a blondie is, but the recipe sounds lovely and that cracked top is so appealing!

  5. This is one of my favorite quick-baking recipes. Sometimes I even add a little oatmeal. Susie is right. This is great with pecans, if your family can do nuts.

  6. Ellie: a blondie is just a baked good that is very similar to a brownie but without chocolate.

  7. This is the one! Making it in 3…2…1….
