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!

    The ratio of butter was too high. I used 3/4 cup (as directed in the version of the recipe I saw), but it was still kind of greasy. I know, I can’t believe something could have too much butter, either, but it was really noticeable. Also, the recipe says 9×9 pan. The photos show a much thinner blondie. I think a 9×13 pan would have been the right size. They were much thicker than I want my blondies to be. Also, when I look at other recipes that have the exact same ingredients (Cook’s Illustrated, for example:, they suggest a 9×13 pan.

  2. OMG! I’ve been a fan of Applebee’s White Chocolate Walnut Blondie and I have to say this is spot on. I agree with some of the other reviews that the middle stayed a little on the gooey side but I didn’t mind it at all! I’ve been trying to find a similar recipe for years since the only Applebee’s we had for miled closed down a few years ago. I’ve tried various versions of this and was able to figure out the blondie but I was never been able to get the sauce down until now. For anyone questioning whether or not to try this recipe, I can assure you that you will not be disappointed! Great job Shelly!

    1. So glad you enjoyed them! I haven’t been back to Applebees in a while to try the original in a long time, and I do agree…the sauce is what really makes these!

    Hi! I just made these and they look wonderful. I’m wondering, though, where to store the sauce; does it keep well in the fridge?

  4. Tried these tonight…. the whole thing was still liquid with a crispy crust… what can I change??? Help the crust tasted delicious
