Brown Butter Blondies

MAKING BROWN BUTTER BLONDIES

Brown buttered anything is quite the treat. Just the name alone of this dessert – Brown Butter Blondies – sounds sinfully delicious.

After making these blondies, I’d have to attest that the brown butter component is definitely a bonus and much needed. I don’t often think to make blondies since the typical brownie always comes to mind; however, this recipe was a nice change and the brown butter ribbon in the center switches up the overall blondie experience with its gooey center.

Here’s how to make these Brown Butter Blondies:

Everything is Bigger and Chocolatey-er in Texas!

My eyes lit up as soon as I found a recipe for a Texas Sheet Cake. In order to look forward to my upcoming trip to Austin, Texas (yes, I am so incredibly excited), I figured that I absolutely, positively had to make it. Plus, did I mention it was ranked #2 Best Dessert in Cooking Light magazine and it has copious amounts of chocolate? Sold.

Step 1: Combine Dry Ingredients

Step 2: Mix Wet Ingredients Together;
Add Dry Mixture

Step 3: Bake Batter; Combine Butter,
Cocoa, Powdered Sugar and Pecan; Spread & Eat 

After making this cake, the phrase “everything is bigger in Texas” kept ringing in my head. But, according to this cake, the phrase really should be “everything is bigger and chocolatey-er in Texas”. This was definitely a delicious cake with plenty of chocolate-y goodness. Perhaps my stomach size needs to increase before my upcoming trip!

Cheers!
