Basic Blondies

I wanted to bring a treat into work for my colleagues.  Being short on time and money, I was looking for something that I could whip up using stuff I already had in my pantry.  These little goodies were on the Whipped blog.  Super simple and easy and super yummy, according to my work peeps.

  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar 
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Liberally spritz an 8x8 baking pan with non-stick buttery spray.
  • Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
  • Stir brown sugar into butter.
  • Whisk in the egg and vanilla.
  • Stir in the flour mixture until just incorporated.
  • Spoon batter into the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake until they are just set in the center, about 25-30 minutes.
  • Let cool completely. Turn out onto cutting board and cut into slices.
