Hi guys! On 2/8/13 I brought blondies for my class. I was extremely nervous about them because I had heard feedback that they were a bit sweet but then I thought, I think my class can handle it. It turns out they could. I got lots of great, positive feedback and I even managed to get a picture. Warning: this picture is not very good, the blondie is missing its chocolate chips and it is only a tiny piece, I don’t think the picture does it justice. Also, I did not use the nuts in this recipe because my school has a no nuts rule but I think it could be fun.
Here is the recipe:
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease a 9×9-inch baking pan.
Measure 1 cup sifted flour. Add baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Sift again. Add 1/2 cup chopped nuts. Mix well and set aside.
Stir the brown sugar into the melted butter and mix well. Cool slightly.
Mix the beaten egg and vanilla into the brown sugar mixture. Add flour mixture, a little at a time, mixing just until combined.
Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle 1/2 to 1 cup chocolate chips on top. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes.
