  • 350g white chocolate

  • 200g light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 200g  plain flour

  • Optional mix-ins: 150g (1 cup) white chocolate chips, 100g (1/2 cup) chopped nuts (such as pecans or walnuts), or a swirl of caramel sauce


Browning Butter


  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a 20cm x 20cm (8-inch x 8-inch) baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang for easy removal later.

  2. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Keep cooking the butter, swirling the pan occasionally, until it turns a deep golden brown and gives off a nutty aroma. This should take about 5-7 minutes. Be careful not to burn it. Once browned, set aside to cool slightly.

  3. Add the white chocolate to a plastic bowl, and pour over the slightly cooled brown butter. Microwave on full power for 2 minutes stirring every 30 seconds. 

  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the light brown sugar and the eggs, one at a time until well combined, followed by the vanilla extract, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Add the melted chocolate and butter to the sugar and eggs. 

  5. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, folding gently until just combined. If you're including any mix-ins, now's the time to fold them into the batter.

  6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, smoothing the top with a spatula. If you're opting for a caramel swirl, drizzle your caramel sauce over the top of the batter and use a knife to create a marbled effect.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out mostly clean, but also showing a little bit of the mix. 

  8. Allow the blondies to cool completely in the pan set on a wire rack. Once cool, use the parchment paper overhang to lift out the blondies and cut them into squares. You can decorate with white chooclate drizzle to make them even more special.

  9. Serve and enjoy the fruits of your labour – the most scrumptious brown butter blondies that ever graced a kitchen!

There you have it: the ultimate brown butter blondie recipe that's sure to make you the star baker in your circle. These blondies are the perfect blend of gooey and chewy, with a caramelised flavour that will have everyone asking for seconds.

Remember, the key to the depth of flavour in these blondies is the brown butter, so don't rush that step – it's what makes these treats truly special. Whether you enjoy them as they are or jazz them up with your favourite mix-ins, these brown butter blondies are bound to become a beloved treat in your home.

Happy baking!
