Share the love with our Autumn M&M Blondies Recipe
I know you’ll love them AND of course sharing the love of our Autumn M&M Blondies Recipe is half the fun! Slice them and take some to your family and friends! I love blonde brownies. This recipe is a spin off of my Gram’s blondie recipe– I changed it up a bit. I took them with me to a gathering a few weeks ago and they were quite a hit AND what’s not to love about them? All we need is a glass of ice cold milk! Mmmmmm mmmm.
Ingredients for our Autumn M&M Blondies Recipe
- Flour- Today we using unbleached flour which has been aged naturally after being milled. It has an off-white color, which continues to dull as it ages, and a more dense grain than bleached flour.
- Granulated Sugar- Granulated sugar is also sometimes known as white sugar, or “regular” sugar. Granulated sugar has had all of the naturally present molasses refined out of it. The fine crystals in granulated sugar don’t cake together, which makes it perfect for measuring, sprinkling onto food and dissolving into drinks.
- Butter- I can’t emphasize enough the importance of bringing your butter and eggs to room temperature. It’s the foundation of building a creamy, smooth dough. If I have enough time before baking I will set butter out on the counter to reach room temperature. If I’m running tight on time then I will place my butter in the microwave for 5-10 seconds but BE CAREFUL not to melt it. . . at all! It’s better for the butter to be a little stiff then even a tiny bit melted. The friction of the beaters as it mixes will warm it the rest of the way; just cream/mix it a little longer, if needed, to get that creamy-smooth and fluffy consistency we are looking for.
- Eggs- I place my eggs in a small bowl of very warm water while I’m gathering all the other ingredients and prepping to bake then when I’m ready to add them into the batter they have reached the perfect temperature! Add your eggs one at a time and cream for 2 minutes, then scape the bowl down using a rubber spatula, and add the next egg. This is the best way to be sure the eggs are incorporated evenly into the batter. Beating each egg individually is essential because eggs act as a leavener which brings the loft (height) into your baked goods.
- Leaveners- We are using both baking powder and baking soda (as mentioned above eggs and incorporating air are also leaveners) in our Autumn M&M Blondies Recipe. When a recipe contains baking powder and baking soda, the baking powder does most of the leavening. It is preferred to use both because too much baking powder causes the batter to be bitter tasting and produces a tough crumb. Both baking powder and baking soda are chemical leavening agents that cause batters to rise when baked. The leavener enlarges the bubbles which are already present in the batter produced through creaming of ingredients.
- Liquids- vanilla and milk for moisture.
- Mix-in’s- mini chocolate chips and autumn colored M&M’s
