espresso blondies

November 4, 2009

i wish i could remember where i got this recipe – i’ve just had it copied and pasted for a while, wanting to sample but never got around to it… until now.  these are SO good! just the right amount of coffee (although, when you’re scooping in entire teaspoons of espresso powder, you begin to wonder if it’s going to be too strong – don’t you worry).  my only warning? don’t eat these too late at night. between sampling the batter and taste-testing one (or more) of the final product, i think i’ll be bouncing of the walls for a few more hours.

  • 1/2 c melted butter
  • 2 tbsp instant espresso powder
  • 1 c light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • dash salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 c flour
  • handful of white and dark chocolate chips

Set oven to 350. Stir melted butter, brown sugar, and espresso powder until combined.  Add egg and vanilla, whisk until smooth (making sure there are no clumps from the brown sugar). Pour in flour, a dash of salt, and baking powder – mix, then stir in chocolate chips.  Spoon batter into a greased 8×8 inch pan, bake 20 minutes, or until the blondies are a unified, lighter color than the original batter (see above picture).  Serve warm or chilled. YUM!
