Skinny Cake Batter Blondies - lightened-up blondies with sprinkles and white chocolate chips. Perfect for any Birthday Party!

I received my oven thermometer the other day ago and tested the temperature on my new oven. Since I had made these two days ago they came out cakey and over baked. My guess is that the oven at my old house didn't quite get to 350 and that is why I had 30 minutes at first listed below. When I made these in my oven at my new house it took less time. I changed the time to 21 minutes but every oven can vary in temperatures so yours might take longer.

Why You Will Like This Recipe

After making this recipe quite a few times it safe to say that your own, and your grandma's oven, or neighbor's oven might not all work the same. Even mine doesn't.

It took me 3 times to get this recipe right. The first time, I overbaked the blondies. It was pretty bad too, the chocolate chips melted on the top and so did the sprinkles. That was one hard mess. The second time, the blondies didn't have enough sugar. They tasted more like corn muffins. The third time is always a charm, right? They came out pretty good and tasty. Who doesn't love lots of sprinkles and chocolate chips?

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Ingredients Needed

  • Light butter, melted - is the most commonly used type of butter in baking, as it allows for more control over the amount of salt in the recipe.
  • Brown sugar - Is made by combining granulated white sugar with molasses, which gives it a brown color and a slightly different taste than regular white sugar.
  • Eggs - The best type of eggs you can buy at the store are organic or free-range eggs, while others may prefer eggs from specific breeds of chickens
  • Vanilla -also known as sodium bicarbonate, is a white crystalline powder that is commonly used in baking as a leavening agent
  • Baking soda - also known as sodium bicarbonate, is a white crystalline powder that is commonly used in baking as a leavening agent
  • All purpose flour - is a type of wheat flour that is commonly used in cooking and baking. It is versatile and can be used for a variety of recipes, including bread, cakes, cookies, and pastries.
  • Sprinkles and White chocolate chips
  • See the recipe card below for a full list of ingredients and measurements.

How to Make Cake Batter Blondies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, beat the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer. Add vanilla and eggs and continue beating until combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients. Add the flour, salt, and baking soda; whisk until well combined. Add your dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat until just combined. Fold in ¼ cup chocolate chips, and ¼ cup sprinkles.
  3. Butter and flour an 8” x 8” pan. Transfer the batter to the pan, and top with remaining sprinkles.
  4. Bake for 21 minutes. Let cool. (depending on how your oven operates these might take longer)
  5. Cut into 12 equal size bars. Serving Size is 1 bar.

Best Baking Tips

  • Room temperature butter is key, let it sit out on the counter for a couple of hours before baking.
  • Read the recipe over a few times before baking or look up videos to see how it’s done properly.
  • Get an Oven Thermometer - Not every oven is the same. Keep an oven thermometer inside to make sure the oven is at the proper temperature. Wondering why your cookies or baked goods didn’t get done? This might be the reason why.
  • Don’t peek at whatever is baking in the oven! This lets out warm air.
  • Always combine the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl and the dry ingredients in another bowl. Slowly incorporate them together.

  1. Jenna says

    Please do not think it is the ingredients listed and type of pan that caused the error. That is clearly not the issue here. The cake batter tasted fine but I made this recipe back in 2016 when I was living at my old house and had a different oven. It is the oven that is causing the issues here because I tried this recipe twice at my new house with this different oven now and even this oven is off. I updated the post above to explain the issue more in depth. You might want to buy a thermometer yourself because you said they came out dark and over baked. Comments are now closed.

  2. Amanda Kruise says

    You also changed baking powder to soda in the direction. I wish i could upload a picture to show you what mine looked like. They come out over baked and dark. I used an 8x8 as well, bc I don’t own a 8x11 pan.

  3. Jenna says

    I'm sorry the recipe didn't work out for you but it is correct as stated. The only thing I fixed was the size pan used.

  4. Amanda Kruise says

    Please fix this recipe. I made this by the ingredients listed and it did not turn out at all! They look so good in the picture and unfortunately i wastes my ingredients and time bc something is inaccurate!

  5. Amanda Kruise says

    Is it baking soda or powder? I’m about to make them

  6. Jenna says

    The recipe is correct. There is nothing wrong with it.

  7. Brittney says

    I'm assuming it's (and used) baking powder, not baking soda and it NEEDS a 1/2 a cup of white sugar as well as the brown, which I did not use unfortunately. Maybe even another half or whole teaspoon of vanilla.
