If you’ve hung around here long enough, you’ve heard many times from me that “I’m no baker”. It’s been nearly 2 years of food blogging at this point, and I’m tellin’ ya, I’ve spent the past 600-someodd days cringing at the thought of baked goods. You know how they say that you should stick to what you know? Well, baking has been a foreign and scary world for me, one that I much preferred to avoid as much as humanly possible while still running a food blog.
But that all changes today.
I’ve been seeing a lot of delicious blondie and brownie recipes lately, and one particular recipe called out to me. “Morgan, stop being such a freakin’ baby and bake me,” it said. “Use browned butter and walnuts and lots of brown sugar to make it your own!” it begged.
And believe it or not, I did it. I baked my little (very nervous) heart out and wound up with these Caramel Apple Blondies.
The Caramel Apple Blondies turned out so moist, sweet, flavorful, and fall-ish, I could hardly believe it. Is fall-ish a word? It is now. It was autumn in my mouth.
