You know when you are looking to buy a car and you find one you like and then you see it everywhere on the road? Well we recently threw a bachelorette for my friend Danielle and started off the evening at Two Mom’s Bakery for some interactive baking. The desserts we made were amazing and I plan to post some of those in the near future. Anyways, after this baking day I kept hearing others rave about this bakery and over the weekend my cousin came up to the cottage and brought some of their famous blondies. They were SO good. I’ll admit that brownies have always been a favourite of mine because I generally prefer chocolate over vanilla. But for some unexplained reason I found myself thoroughly enjoying these blondies. So much so, that I decided to bake a batch this afternoon. It’s a rainy day and I was excited to bake some to eat while watching the last events of the London 2012 Olympics.
I found this blondies recipe from Smitten Kitchen, a blog I have come to love over the last year. Once in a while I’m in the mood to make a really intense and complicated dessert, but more often than not I’m looking for a simple one. These blondies are easy to make but have such a rich taste, especially because I added some chocolate chips. “Smart move”, I said to myself as I took my first bite.
- 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg

- Pinch salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
What You Need to Do:

- Add salt, stir in flour. Mix in any additions (this is where I added 3/4 cup of chocolate chips).
