| I created this recipe for the 2009 Great American Beer Festival. I wanted to make something with Live Oak Hefeweizen, but I traditional lemon bar wasn't going make the trip in my luggage. Hefeweizen Blondies were born, and they made the trip over. Enjoy!|
Preparation:Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9x13 inch pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt until evenly combined. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar on high speed until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, and then beat in half the flour mixture. Whisk in beer. The batter will seem a bit thin and chunky. It will look like a broken batter, but it will come together. Mix in the other half of the flour mixture. Pour into a buttered baking pan, and bake 25 to 30 minutes on center rack in the oven, until the toothpick test comes out clean. Cool completely and chill before serving.
