Whether you’re whipping up a batch for a last-minute get-together or just treating yourself (because you deserve it), these blondies are sure to impress. Let's dive into the simple steps to get these golden beauties from your oven to your tummy in no time.

Easy Blonde Brownie Recipe


  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup add-ins (chocolate chips, nuts, etc.), optional


  1. Prep it Up: Crank your oven up to 350°F (175°C). Grab a 9x13 inch baking pan and line it with tin foil, making sure some overhangs the edges for easy blondie removal later. Hit the foil with a quick spray of nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Mix the Base: In a medium-sized bowl, blend the melted butter with the granulated and brown sugars. Mix until it looks fully combined and oh-so glossy.

  3. Egg-cellent Addition: Crack those eggs into the bowl and pour in the vanilla extract. Stir everything together until it’s just as mixed and harmonious as your favorite playlist.

  4. Dry Ingredients Time: Sprinkle in the salt and baking soda, and then introduce the flour to the party. Mix it until everything is combined—you’re not after a workout, just a smooth batter.

  5. Choose Your Own Adventure: This is where you can get creative! Fold in your chosen add-ins, if you’re using them. Chocolate chips? Yum. Nuts? Crunchy goodness. Or keep it classic and simple. Either way, it’s going to be delicious.

  6. Bake to Perfection: Pour that gorgeous batter into your prepped pan and smooth it out to an even layer. Slide it into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. You’re looking for a barely golden brown top—don't let it overcook, unless you’re into that sort of thing.

  7. Cool, Slice, and Serve: Once baked, let the blondies cool completely in the pan. When they’re ready, use the foil overhangs to lift them out onto a cutting board. Slice them into squares or rectangles or any shape you’re in the mood for.

Blondies are the underappreciated heroes of the baking world, ready to satisfy your sweet cravings with their buttery goodness and chewy texture. Whether you’re a baking newbie or a seasoned pro, this simple recipe is foolproof and bound to become a favorite. So, what are you waiting for? Get baking!
