Butterscotch Brownies

This is one of the first real 'hits' in my baking repertoire; a recipe inspired by one I found in the first cookbook I got when I was married, and has been passed along to all of my family members and lots of friends. And now I pass it on to YOU.


  • Prep Time : 10 min
  • Cook Time : 30 min
  • Ready Time : 40 min


20 People


  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar NOT demerrara. Best is Domino's dark brown or similar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips optional


Heat oven to 350°F/175°C. Mix brown sugar and oil. Add vanilla and eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spread in 9×13 pan. Bake 30 minutes. Cut into about 2-inch squares while warm.
(Note: I don’t always cut while warm. If baked just right it doesn’t matter but a bit too long in oven and they will harden a bit when cool making it harder to cut).

    Did I miss something? where is the chocolate for these brownies?

    • I believe these are another name for blondes, which is brownies without chocolate!! I like to add chocolate chips when I make them.
