Applebee's Maple Butter Blondie

"This recipe is a combination of the two recipes that are already out there on the internet. I played around with making this dessert a little bit more cakey and the sauce a little creamier and this is what i created. (BTW, I work at Applebees so I am always around the dessert!)"

    This tasted good, everyone loved it! But I have had the Blondie brownie from Applebees, too many times to count. And this is too cake like.

    Sorry, I wasn't a fan. I prefer the other online copycat recipes for this one. The blondie was too cakey in this recipe, and the cream cheese made the sauce taste funny.

    Instead of the eggs I added 1 tablespoon of psyllium husk and 1/4 cup of warm water. I didn’t heat up the dough. I replaced the butter with oil and also I used carob chips instead of chocolate. It came out pretty yummy with a carob ganache on top. I’m going to serve it for a graduation party!


When I am not at work serving food, I love cooking it at home for me and my boyfriend! Cooking food is my stress releiver....and so is eating it!!!
