Blondie Brownie

By  | Last Updated:  

Did you know brownies originated in the early 20th century? Some think Fannie Farmer was the creator of the recipe, and some say a forgetful housewife left the baking powder out of her cake recipe…but no one knows for sure. What everyone can agree on: brownies are a popular and easy dessert table idea. To me, the chewy, flavorful bites seem especially suited to summer and fall birthday parties. This Blondie Brownie is a rift on the more familiar version. Serve it fresh and warm from the oven with ice cream or make it ahead and enjoy it at room temperature. Brownies also make a great lunch-box surprise.  Any way you serve brownies, they’’re sure to be a hit!

Blondie Brownie

  • Author:


  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted, plus more for pan
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush an 8-inch square baking pan with melted butter; line pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on two sides. Also, butter paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk room temperature butter and sugars until smooth. Whisk in egg and vanilla until fully incorporated. Add flour and salt; mix just until moistened (do not over mix). Fold in 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips. Transfer batter to prepared pan; pour and smooth top. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips.
  3. Bake until top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, between 40 to 45 minutes. Set pan on a wire rack, and let cool completely. Using parchment overhang, lift cake from pan and transfer to a cutting board; cut into 16 squares.
