Ever since I tried the maple blondie at Applebee's, I've been determined to figure out the recipe. I tried several variations until I came up with this one, and it's become one of our family favorites. —Pat Parker, Chester, South Carolina

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped pecans
  • MAPLE CREAM SAUCE:
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • Vanilla ice cream and chopped pecans

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in pecans.
  2. Spread into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25-30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
