How to Make White Chocolate Maple Blondies

The very easy blondie recipe comes together with simple ingredients:

  • Butter. I used salted butter, but you can use either salted or unsalted.
  • Light Brown Sugar. The brown sugar adds a little more depth of flavor than granulated sugar in this recipe.
  • Vanilla Extract. For a little more flavor.
  • Salt/Baking Powder.
  • All Purpose Flour.
  • Eggs.
  • Maple Syrup. I always use pure maple syrup, but certainly you can use pancake syrup if that’s all you have, although it doesn’t pack as much flavor. OR you can use 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of maple extract if you have that on-hand as well.

How To Know When Blondies Are Done Baking

The trick I use for blondies as well as brownies is that you insert a tooth pick a few inches away from the edge (NOT the center), and if it comes out clean they’re done! The reason I do this is because if you wait until the center comes out clean you will have an overdone brownie/blondie. This trick will leave your blondies soft!

Is the Maple Butter Sauce Optional?

Sure, but no. Ha! The maple butter sauce is out of control delicious, so I highly recommend you make it, especially if you plan on eating these warm with ice cream.

If you are bringing these to an event and aren’t planning to serve with the ice cream you can skip it because it could get messy if you don’t have a fork or spoon. But make sure to try the sauce at some point! It’s life changing good!

  1. I really, really enjoyed your description of the maple butter. Seems like a pretty accurate reaction. 🙂 I don’t know how I’ve been to Applebee’s a thousand times and never had one. Yours look and sound incredible, though!

  2. Diane

    These look heavenly! I can’t eat regular chocolate as it gives me migraines so I’m always looking for white chocolate desserts. I’ll be baking these very soon. Thanks!

  3. Elizabeth

    They look incredible. Is there a way to “punch up” the maple flavor in the brownie? I fear adding too much syrup to the batter. I want to make these, but without the butter sauce.

  4. To much butter? Too much sugar? Crazy talk! These remind me of blondies from a popular restaurant, I haven’t had one in ages — it was either TGI Friday’s or Applebees. It came out to the table hot in a skillet. Oh my goodness, so good! Definitely giving these a try.
