I'm really not a baker. Over the years it seems my sweet tooth has become a savory tooth, so I don't really make a lot of sweet treats. Flipping through my Google Reader I found this recipe and just had to go for it when we had company one Saturday night. So glad I did. I personally could only eat one, but there were none left come Sunday at noon.
Oreo Birthday Cake Blondies
from I Wash, You Dry
8 tbsp butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup self-rising flour
8 Birthday Cake Oreos, roughly chopped
1/4 cup sprinkles
Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8x8" baking dish with parchment or foil. In a large bowl with a hand mixer, cream together butter and sugar until light a fluffy (you could also use a stand mixer). Add egg and vanilla and beat until incorporated. Add flour 1/2 cup at a time, scraping the sides of the bowl as you go. Fold in Oreos and sprinkles. Transfer to the baking dish. Bake 20-25 minutes, until the center is set and a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool, serve, and stand back from the mob that's gathered.
This would be a great alternative to birthday cake for someone who hates cake (HINT!) And definitely needs a big glass of milk on the side!
