Blonde Brownies

Wednesday January 26, 2011

Hubby brought this recipe to our marriage by way of his Grandma.  For a while I “pooh poohed” them, in favor of my favorite “blonde brownie”, aka Congo Bars.  But I have come around and find this recipe quite tasty.  They are much gooier than the Congo Bars I make and don’t make as many — which can be a good thing if you are trying to not eat a whole pan’s worth.

Blonde Brownies


  • 1/3 cup margarine (or 6 Tbsp. butter)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup sifted flour (we never sift)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
  • 1/2 pkg (6 oz) chocolate chips (not optional)


Melt margarine in a medium sauce pan.  Add sugar and mix in.  Let cool a little, then add egg and vanilla.  Stir well.

In  a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt).   Add the dry ingredients a little at a time to the sugar mixture.  When combined, pour into a 9″x9″ greased pan.  Top with nuts and chocolate chips — pressing them into the mixture with the back of a spoon or spatula.

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

Brownies should be lightly browned on edges but will still be gooey on the inside.   Let cool for a few minutes so you don’t burn your fingers or tongue!
