Applebee’s Maple Butter Blondie
I always like restaurant copycat recipes, it is fun to have a recipe that people know they like from a restaurant and be able to have it at home. We've made this one before, and it turned out really well. I eat at Applebee's a lot, and I have my favorite things on the menu, and this is one of the best desserts. It worth the time to make it at home, and it was even good to eat the next day.
This came from Todd Wilbur's book Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2.
This recipe is cut in half from what the book said, it made enough enough for about 6 servings.
-2 egg whites
-1/4 cup butter
-1/4 cup brown sugar
-2 Tbsp. sugar
-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
-1 cup + 2 Tbsp. flour
-1/2 tsp. baking soda
-1/4 tsp. baking powder
-1/4 cup milk
-4 oz. white chocolate
-1/4 cup chopped walnuts
-pinch of salt
-1/4 cup softened butter
-1/4 cup powdered sugar
-1/8 cup softened cream cheese
-1 Tbsp. maple syrup
-extra walnuts for topping
Preheat the oven to 325.
|Beat the egg whites until they form peaks. Add the butter and |
brown sugar and mix well.
Add the dry ingredients and mix. Then stir in the milk, chocolate chips, and walnuts.
|Since I cut the original in half, and it was supposed to go|
in a 9x13 pan, I used an 8x8, the batter was spread pretty
thin, but they turned out to be a good thickness.
I baked mine for about 32 minutes.
|Wait about 15 minutes for the blondie to cool, then cut|
it an serve on a plate with ice cream.
|The sauce looked pretty thin when I made it, but|
you should heat it in the microwave for about 30 seconds,
and it turned to the perfect consistency. Top with walnuts.
There kind of looks like a lot of ingredients in this recipe, but the only one I didn't have when I decided to make this was the vanilla ice cream, so you likely have most of these ingredients in your kitchen already.
