An easy one bowl recipe for perfect blondies.


  • 95 grams unsalted butter, melted
  • 90 grams (1/2 cup) brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 140 grams (1 cup) plain flour or all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Mix-in’s of your choice (see notes below)


  1. Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced. Grease and line a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan with baking or parchment paper, ensuring two sides overhang.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add melted butter and sugar and gently mix together. Add vanilla and egg yolk and mix to combine.
  3. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Fold through desired mix-in’s (see below suggestions). Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth the top.
  4. Bake blondies for approximately 21-23 minutes or until golden on the edges and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Leave in pan to cool for 10-15 minutes before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into squares to serve.


Flavour combinations:
Oreos and M&M’s: Roughly chop 8 Oreo cookies. Fold them into the blondie batter along with 65 grams (1/3 cup) M&M’s.

Biscoff and Caramilk: Fold through 50 grams (1/4 cup) Caramilk, gold or white chocolate chips into the blondie batter. Then fold in 60 grams (1/4 cup) Biscoff cookie spread. Transfer to baking pan, then top with roughly chopped Lotus Biscoff cookies.
