Servings 9 squares
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon to 1/2 salt ,to taste
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar ,light or dark
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg , room temperature
- 1 cup all-purpose flour , spooned and leveled
- 150 g / About 1 cup dark chocolate , roughly chopped
Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line an 8x8 inch square baking pan with aluminium foil leaving an overhang on each side and spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Or line the pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a medium sized sauce pan on medium heat, melt the butter. After the butter has melted, begin whisking it gently as you allow it to crack and pop while bubbling slightly. The butter will begin to turn brown in color as milk solids form, and you will smell a nutty aroma. Once the butter has begun to brown, remove from the heat. Be careful not to let the butter brown too long or it will burn.
Let the butter cool for 5-10 minutes. Stir in the vanilla & salt. Then add in the sugars followed by the egg while mixing with a large wooden spatula or wooden spoon. Make sure the butter has cooled so that the egg doesn't scramble. Then fold in the flour with your wooden spoon/rubber spatula, and once combined stir in the chocolate chunks.
Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for about 18-22 minutes. The top should look set and the edges should just be starting to pull away at the sides. Allow the blondies to cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting in.
