  • 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 3/4 cup (350g) light brown sugar, tightly packed
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk, room temperature preferred
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups (285g) all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cup (250g) butterscotch chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F (175C) and prepare either a 9x13 or 9x9 pan (13x9 for more servings, 9x9 for thicker, chewier butterscotch brownie squares) by lining with parchment paper (or lightly grease and flour).

  2. Combine melted butter and sugar in a large bowl, stir well.
  3. Add eggs, and egg yolk, one at a time, stirring well after each addition.
  4. Stir in vanilla extract.
  5. In a separate, medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt.
  6. Gradually stir dry ingredients into wet until completely combined. Stir in butterscotch chips.
  7. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan. Bake on 350F (177C) until edges just begin to turn golden brown (this is about 25-30 minutes for 9x13 pan; 35-40 minutes for a 9x9 pan).

  8. Allow to cool before cutting and serving
