Blondie Sundaes

This is an easy dessert.  Really.  It is.  Blondies.  Super simple.  We've made them here before. The ice cream was store-bought...(but it was very good quality store-bought... :-D )  And the sauce?  It's the sauce from the Apple Cake with Caramel Sauce recipe, only I used half dark brown sugar and half light brown sugar for a more intense flavor.  Well, to be totally honest, I used half dark and half light because I was almost out of light brown sugar.  So I substituted.  BUT the sauce really was a little more intensely-flavored, which was great over the ice cream.  Really great.  My guests were happy.  I was happy.  And there was very little cleanup. Isn't that easy?!

Blondies

1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups (scant) all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Remove pan from heat and stir in brown sugar. Add eggs, beating well after the addition of each one. Stir in vanilla.

Add dry ingredients; mix thoroughly. Spread in greased 13-inch x 9-inch baking pan. Bake 25 minutes. Cut in bars while warm; remove from pan when almost cool.

Lori, I'm so happy that you shared your Blondie recipe. My mouth has been watering ever since I saw our Sundae. This dessert is moving to the top of my "must" make list.

Cathy said...

That's the most scrumptious dessert I've seen in ages. I can think of so many ways to use that luscious sauce. That photo has me drooling.
