Xpresso Blondies/Espresso Blondies

X is one of the complicate alphabet to pick a baking dish with. Obviously i couldnt think more than baking Espresso blondies so that i can rewrite as Xpresso blondies as title to stick with this month's blogging marathon's theme. Blondies are known as blond brownie is a rish dessert. Its ressembles quite like the traditional chocolate loaded brownies but blondies are prepared /baked without cocao powder and its contains brown sugar hence this dessert have a deep brown colour. Blondies can be prepared very much by adding chocolate chips or any other flavored chips. Blondies are baked in pan as much as like brownies and they are cut in rectangular shapes for serving. One of my favourite way of indulging these blondies is to top them with a scoop of vanilla icecream drizzled with caramel sauce. Coming to my today's recipe, this blondies calls for Espresso coffee powder which plays an important role to bring the flavor in this simple but yet a delicious blondies.

I was wondering what you would come up with X and you've done it with an excellent recipe. I once baked blondies and it turned out so bad. Perhaps I will try them again by following your recipe.
