Corona and Lime Blondies


Some things just mesh well together: Peanut Butter and Jelly, Chips and Dip, Corona and Lime.

When I found a recipe a while back for Corona Blondies, I knew I had to adapt it to incorporate lime. The bars came together in no time at all, and I brought them to a group of people who mesh together even better than the flavors — some of my best friends and old roommates!

These treats are almost like a cross between dense blondies and fluffy cake, and the citrus and beer flavors shine through nicely. They almost lasted a whole weekend, but self-restraint was just too lacking. Well worth it!


Corona and Lime Blondies (adapted from Scarletta Bakes):
Makes about 20 squares
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup Corona beer (I used Corona Light since it's all I had)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1teaspoon salt
  • zest from 2 limes
  • juice from 1/2 lime
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease an 8″ x 8″ baking pan liberally with cooking spray and set aside
  • Mix together sugar and lime zest and let sit for 5 minutes
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and lime sugar until light and fluffy
  • Add in the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract and lime juice and beat until all incorporated
  • Mix salt with flour and alternate adding flour mixture and beer until both are incorporated
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean
  • Allow the blondies to cool completely before cutting

Baby, will you be my corona and lime???
