Baking up a pan of perfect blondies is easy with this simple step-by-step.


  • 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1⁄4 cups packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1⁄2 cup peanuts


  1. Grease an 8×8-inch baking pan with butter or nonstick spray. Line with parchment, leaving overhang on two sides for easy lifting.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt until combined; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat the melted butter and brown sugar until blended and smooth, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla until incorporated. The mixture may look slightly curdled.
  4. With the mixer on low speed, slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet until just combined. Do not overmix. Fold in chocolate chips and peanuts.
  5. Pour batter evenly into prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly. Bake for 23-28 minutes, rotating halfway through bake time, until lightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean with a few moist crumbs.
  6. Let blondies cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before lifting out the parchment to cut into squares.


  • Allow ingredients like butter and eggs to come to room temperature before baking for even distribution and rise.
  • Grease your pan well so blondies lift out easily when cool. Parchment paper also helps.
  • Preheat your oven fully before baking and rotate pans midway for even baking.
  • Let blondies cool completely before cutting for cleaner slices that hold together better.
  • Resist the urge to overmix the batter once the dry ingredients are added. Just mix until combined.
  • Inserting a toothpick into the center should yield moist crumbs, not wet batter, when done.
  • Letting the bars cool completely makes cutting so much easier!
  • Playing up the butterscotch flavor sets blondies apart.
