  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne powder
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 2 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chunks up to 1 cup


  • Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8x8 pan with butter. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper, leaving a couple inches of paper hanging over the sides.
  • Place butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until melted. Continue to cook (the butter will foam) until it is fragrant and a nutty brown color. Take off the heat and pour into a large bowl. Let cool to room temperature.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cayenne, and salt; set aside.
  • Add brown sugar to the bowl with butter and whisk until smooth. Add egg, vanilla, and ginger, then whisk to combine. Stir in dry ingredients and white chocolate until just incorporated. Pour batter into pan and smooth top. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes back clean. Let cool for at least 15 minutes.
  • Use the hanging edges of parchment paper to lift the blondies out of the pan. Cut into 12 squares and serve.


Store blondies covered in an airtight container for up to 3 days at room temperature or up to a week in the refrigerator. You can also wrap individual blondies in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, place them in a freezer-safe bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost frozen blondies overnight in the refrigerator or set out at room temperature for about an hour.
