Many people know these as Blondies, but I’ve always called them Blonde Brownies. This is a family favorite recipe to make.
One of my earliest kitchen memories involves these brownies. I was probably 10, and was making these with my best friend at my house. This was pre-microwave days, so we melted the butter in a pan on the stove.
We discovered that we didn’t have enough brown sugar though, so my mom ran to the store while we melted the butter. We got tired of waiting and decided to skip to the next step and add the eggs. No problem, except for that the brown sugar helps to cool down the butter, and with the pan being so hot still, the eggs started to cook when we dropped them in!
Our fast-acting solution was to set the hot pan out on the porch which was covered with snow. This actually worked pretty well and we ended up with only a few bits of cooked egg in our brownies, and they still tasted just fine 🙂
What’s funny is that even after we moved into a house with a microwave, it was years before I realized I could use it to melt the butter in this recipe. (duh) I’d been so used to always mixing up the batter on the stove top that it was habit.
Anyway, here’s the recipe–enjoy!

Would it be possible to bake in a 8×12 baking pan? If so, what would the baking time be?
I think the baking time would remain the same!
