It might sound weird, putting miso in a blondie, but trust me, you'll fall in love on the first bite.

  • 1/4 cup white miso paste
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • white sesame seeds
  • black sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease the bottom and sides of a 10-inch cast-iron skillet. 

  2. Place miso in a large bowl; pour warm melted butter over miso and stir with a whisk to begin dispersing the miso paste. Add sugar, vanilla, and oil to the bowl, whisking until ingredients are evenly combined. Add egg to bowl; whisk until combined and the mixture is glossy. 

  3. Stir flour, baking powder, and salt into the miso mixture until fully combined. Spread the batter in an even layer in the prepared pan, smoothing surface with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle the surface with black and white sesame seeds to cover completely. 

  4. Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the blondie comes out clean. Cool completely; cut into wedges and serve.
