I’m proud to present, for the very first time, One Pan Blondie. This nutty companion to our brunette favorite – One Pan Brownies – is the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon cup of tea.
Makes one 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Whisk to blend well and set aside.
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Remove pan from the heat and whisk in the brown sugar until well combined. Let cool to the touch. Stir in the eggs, milk, and vanilla until well blended. Using a rubber spatula fold in the flour mixture, chocolate chips, and nuts. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Be sure not to overbake. Cool on a rack. Have one or two before they’re gone. Just like the brownies, these don’t last long at my house.
