Funfetti Blondies

They say blondes are more fun, and that holds doubly true when you add a funfetti Oreo cheesecake layer into the mix.

Ingredients

  • Blondies layer
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, plus more for pan
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup funfetti sprinkles + extra to sprinkle
  • Golden Oreo cheesecake layer
  • 250g Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp greek yogurt
  • 200g funfetti birthday Oreos
  • 1 cup funfetti sprinkles

Steps

  1. Blondies layer
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Add butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat using a hand mixer on high speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes, scraping sides occasionally. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until well combined. Add flour, salt and baking powder; beat just until combined. Fold in funfetti sprinkles and toasted pecans.
  4. Using an offset spatula, spread batter into pan. Bake until surface is golden brown and a cake tester inserted into centre comes out barely clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  5. To make golden Oreo cheesecake layer add cream cheese and Greek yogurt to a large mixing bowl and mix until well combined. Add golden Oreos and funfetti sprinkles and fold in until well combined. Add to the blondies and spread evenly using an offset spatula. Sprinkle with extra sprinkles. Chill for 1 hour before cutting into 4x4 (16 pieces)
