This is from an old Punahou Bulletin, courtesy of retired Food Services Director Tita Mowat Lyons. It's a blond brownie that brings back fond memories of Punahou School. Note: for a less cakey, more "fudgy" brownie, use 1 tsp. baking powder instead of 2 tsp.

Yummmmmy!

Don't miss the note in the description that says "Note: for a less cakey, more "fudgy" brownie, use 1 tsp. baking powder instead of 2 tsp."! It was definitely better with less baking powder. :)

Ooooh, yummy! I did cut the amount of brown sugar down to 1 1/4 cups as I don't like things that are too sweet. These still have a good sweetness to them without being overpowering. I have a new oven which seems to run a bit high so the top came out a bit darker than what I would have liked. For the nuts, I used a mixture of pecans, walnuts and almonds. Thanks Chilicat!
