As requested from my facebook page a few weeks ago, here is a how to video for Cinnamon Bun inspired blondies. I won’t take credit for the recipe, which i found on a fabulous blog by ‘The girl who ate everything’
The recipe is really easy to follow and they smell and taste amazing. If you like a thicker more moist brownie, I would double the recipe and cook for about 40 minutes. I also topped mine off with a mixture of icing sugar and cinnamon, just for an added flourish.
½ cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1½ teaspoons vanilla
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon butter, melted
¼ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
¼ cup butter, softened
½ teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 350°. Line an 8×8 baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray.
For the Blondies: In a large bowl, cream together the melted butter and brown sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Add the salt and flour and mix until smooth. Spread mixture in the prepared pan.
For the Filling: In a small bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Spoon dollops of the mixture over the blondie batter. With a knife, swirl the mixture into the batter.
Bake for 23-28 minutes or until center isn’t jiggly (mine was done at 23 minutes but my oven cooks fast). Cool completely.
For the frosting: In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Once the ingredients have combined, whip the frosting until fluffy. If your ingredients are softened you shouldn’t have to add any milk but you can add a dash if needed.
Frost the cooled blondies and sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired.
