today is my wonderful husband’s birthday!
(it’s a pretty big one too!)
in honor of this most momentous occasion, i baked birthday cake blondies.
what is this magical creation you ask?
it’s like if a cookie and a brownie had a baby and that baby played with sprinkles.
heavenly/divine/perfect…insert word of choice.
because i’m so darn nice i’ve decided to share the recipe i used.
i love baking so i had to experiment a little and am totally happy with the result.
birthday cake blondies
(i forgot to put out the other egg and the butter when i took this pic…oops!)
1 c all purpose flour
1 t baking powder
1/4 t baking soda
1 t salt
2/3 c butter–melted
2 c brown sugar–packed
2 T vanilla extract
in a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. set aside.
melt the butter. pour melted butter into a large mixing bowl. add the brown sugar. mix together then let cool for a few minutes.
beat the eggs then add them to the sugar/butter mix. add the vanilla. beat well.
slowly, add the flour mix to the brown sugar mix.
(this can also be said as “add the dry mix to the wet mix”)
add flour mix until completely combined.
spread mix into a greased 9×13 pan.
bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.
um, yum. it’s possible i’m drooling right now. or i may not be. you’ll never know!
i added white chocolate chips to the top of mine hoping they’d melt.
to jazz them up even more i cut them into bit size pieces and then topped them with some chocolate fudge frosting and even more sprinkles!
yum yum yum.
best way to celebrate a birthday or any occasion is with cake!
happy birthday my dearest j!
i’m off to bring these to his work. i’m hoping his shop won’t devour them all before i can grab one!
