I wanted to treat myself and I’m not really a chocolate dessert person, so I decided a blondie was the way to go! I nabbed this from Dessert For Two, and was super happy with the results! I just stuck them in the oven at the same time as the tofu I was making for dinner!
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg yolk
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- big pinch of salt
- ½ cup flour
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
Preheat the oven to 375 F and line a small loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving some hanging over the edges so you can lift the blondies out.
Mix up the butter and sugar in a bowl with a wooden spoon, then add the yolk, vanilla, and salt, and mix together. Add the flour and baking powder and stir until combined.
Spread the mixture into the loaf pan and bake for 15 minutes, or until the edges are satisfactorily golden brown. Remove the pan from the oven and let it sit for five minutes before lifting the blondies out and cutting them into however many bars you want. I went for six fairly small ones. They’re going to be perfectly chewy on the inside, and so wonderfully crispy on the edges. You will not be disappointed!
