Saturday was such a sunny day in London. I actually found it warm and didn't have to wear a second layer for once. Sunday on the other hand was wet and gloomy. This was a random bake during the day just because I was stuck indoors. I usually bake in the morning when everyone else is sleeping in cause I'm an early riser.

I used this recipe from Mike Lesiuk as the ingredients were simple and it used melted butter so no creaming of butter and sugar by hand required. The only difference I made was I cut down the sugar and used 3/4 cup and I added 1/2 tsp of baking powder. Simply because I prefer a cakey cake to a fudgy one.

The batter looked like a softer version of chocolate chip dough. I overbaked the blondie. I think I left it in there for 25 minutes. This is what happens when you don't have a timer and you rely on checking the clock every few minutes. And on top of that, I always forget the time I put the cake in oven in the first place.
The blondie is nearly finished with little help from anyone else. To be fair, the blondie is fairly short; it IS half the height of a normal cake.
