About this recipe
Blondies are a type of baked dessert very similar to brownies, but instead of being made with chocolate, their main flavor comes from vanilla and brown sugar, which gives them a golden or blond color (hence their name). Typically, blondie dough contains flour, eggs, butter, brown sugar (which adds a caramel flavor), and vanilla extract.
Although they do not have chocolate as a base ingredient, it is common to find blondies with chocolate chips, nuts, white chocolate chips, or butterscotch among their ingredients. This recipe is a vegan blondie recipe and has coffee with milk, café con leche.
What is café con leche?
Café con leche is a beloved beverage in Latin culture, combining freshly brewed coffee with steamed milk in equal parts. It’s less intense than pure espresso but richer and more full-bodied than American-style coffee with milk. Café con leche is a cultural symbol that represents warmth, hospitality, and simple, everyday moments.
Despite regional variations, its core essence remains a staple, illustrating the widespread love for this comforting drink in Latin American countries and Spain.
To make these café con leche blondies you need flour, baking powder, salt, vegan butter, maple syrup, vanilla and brown sugar.
How to make the blondies?
Start by melting the butter, then add the sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Mix well and bake.
Enjoy! These are vegan blondies, and you won’t believe how delicious they are. It has the perfect texture, slightly crunchy on top and soft and fudgy inside.
CAFÉ CON LECHE BLONDIES
- 1 brownie pan 8 x 8 in or 9 x 11 in
- ½ cup melted butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup espresso coffee
- ¼ cup almond or cashew milk
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare the pan. Use butter, oil, or non-stick spray to lightly coat the entire inner surface of the pan.
- Cut a piece of parchment paper large enough to cover the bottom and sides of the pan.
- In a large bowl, melt the butter, add the sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, and mix very well.
- Add the dry ingredients, mix well and then add the coffee and milk. Mix and pour into the prepared pan.
- Bake for 20 or 25 minutes, remove when the top is shiny and firm. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
- Use brown sugar. Brown sugar adds a richness in flavor and additional moisture due to its molasses content, resulting in moister blondies with a subtle caramel flavor. It is also known as brown sugar.
- Do not overmix the batter. Mix the ingredients until just combined. Overmixing can introduce too much air into the batter, which can cause the blondies to bake with a more cakey texture instead of dense and fudgy.
- Blondies continue to cook with residual heat after being removed from the oven. If you leave them in the oven until completely firm, they might end up dry. Remove them when the center is just set but still slightly soft.
