These blonde brownies are loaded with decadent butterscotch chips to make these bars extra delicious!
Plus, they're made in a skillet for a fun twist!
Skillet desserts just happen to be one of my favorite things to make. There's just something magical about pouring your batter or dough into a cast iron skillet and watching it go to work. Skillet desserts are so simple to make, and this one has very few ingredients which makes it even better.
Other than maybe the butterscotch chips, everything you need to make this delicious dessert should be in your pantry. Looking for a fun dessert for the family? Have guests that unexpectedly stop over? Need a party dessert? If you fall into any of these categories then these Skillet Butterscotch Blondies are for you!
Mix all of the ingredients together, pour the batter into the skillet and bake until done. Easy peasy! I love letting the skillet cool for just a few minutes, then putting huge scoops of ice cream in the center and letting my family dig in! It's just like getting a fancy dessert at a restaurant. I think your family and friends would like this too, don't you?
Let's make some blondies!
Skillet Butterscotch Blondies
Author: Sarah Bates | The Chef Next Door
2 sticks unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 10-inch cast iron skillet with baking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, then the vanilla. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir to combine. Fold in one cup of the butterscotch chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared skillet and smooth out the top. Sprinkle the remaining half cup of butterscotch chips over the top of the batter evenly. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the blondies are golden brown and the center is set. Allow to cool for about 20 minutes before slicing. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
