Apple Cider Blondies Recipe

    Ingredients:

    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
    • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup apple cider
    • 1/2 cup chopped apples (peeled and cored)
    • Optional: 1/2 cup chopped nuts (such as walnuts or pecans)
    • Optional: 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    Instructions:

    Preheat Oven:

    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×9 inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper.

    Prepare Dry Ingredients:

    In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon (if using). Set aside.

    Mix Wet Ingredients:

    In a separate large bowl, mix together the melted butter and brown sugar until well combined. Add the egg and vanilla extract, and beat until smooth.

    Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:

    Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

    Add Apple Cider and Apples:

    Stir in the apple cider until fully incorporated into the batter. Then fold in the chopped apples and nuts (if using), ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.

    Bake:

    Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it out evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

    Cool and Serve:

    Allow the blondies to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, cut into squares and serve.

    Enjoy these delicious Apple Cider Blondies as a sweet treat with a hint of autumn flavor! They’re perfect for enjoying with a cup of coffee or tea on a cozy day.
