Soft and chewy blondies

A few weeks ago, we flew to the Midwest to visit my in-laws. Thankfully, we didn’t have any issues with our travel plans other than a slightly delayed arrival. We spent the 4th of July at the lake with some of our dearest friends, and I made a white chocolate cheesecake for the occasion. I made a second one for my in-laws to enjoy since they are big cheesecake fans.

My mother-in-law had made some blondies, and I reminded me that I hadn’t made them in a while either. When we returned home, I found this blondie recipe and gave some to friends. Addie was very upset with me because I gave more than half away. I had only kept a few for ourselves to eat, and she was mad. Don’t worry though – I made other desserts that she was able to eat and stay happy with.

These blondies are a good base for whatever add-ins you like. I used both white and semi-sweet chocolate chips for mine. My husband said that the blondies were a bit on the plain side, so if you want to jazz yours up, you can always frost them or add in nuts.

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter melted
  • 1 and ¼ cup brown sugar packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs plus 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 and ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips optional


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Generously grease or line a standard 9"x13" baking pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the melted butter and sugars. Add in the eggs, egg yolk, and vanilla and stir well until uniform.
  • In a separate medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, corn starch, baking powder, and salt. Transfer this to the large bowl with the wet ingredients. Mix well until everything comes together.
  • Fold in the white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips if using (or use any other baking chips - like butterscotch, maple, peanut butter, etc. You can also add nuts too).
  • Transfer the batter to your prepared baking pan and smooth the top. If desired, sprinkle additional baking chips on top.
  • Bake in your preheated oven for 25 minutes or until the sides start to turn a light golden color.
  • Allow the blondies to cool before slicing and serving.

    I always thought blondies had to be butterscotch so I used to steer clear of them , until (drum roll) .. Christina Tosi did birthday blondies in Bake Club! You should definitely give them a go, in typical Tosi fashion , they are perfectly salty and sweet with all the right textures.
