Coffee Blondies

While I didn’t find the coffee taste particularly present in this recipe, I can say it was DELISH. Via Bakers Royale. [Note that this recipe takes a little more time than it may appear at first glance because at a few steps, you have to wait for your ingredients or mixtures to come to room temperature.]

  • 1 1/2 ups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon strong coffee, room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup pecan halves, toasted and chopped
  • 3/4 cup bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preparation: Adjust the oven rack to the middle position. Preheat oven 350 degrees F. Grease 9×13 inch pan and line with a parchment sling. Brew strong coffee and allow to come to room temperature.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder
  3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter, brown sugar and salt. Remove from the heat and sir in the coffee until well combined. Let the mixture cool to room temperature.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla and whisk until combined.
  5. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Add the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  6. Add the pecans and chocolate chips and sir gently.
  7. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan and bake 18 to 24 minutes, until the blondies are set on the edge and top is golden and brown and just beginning to form cracks. A wooden skewer or toothpick inserted into the blondies should come out with a just a couple crumbs. [For me, the cook time was a bit longer, but every oven has its own personality.]
  8. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool completely. Use the parchment sling to gently lift the blondies from the pan. Cut the into squares.
