Incorporating certain ingredients--why does this happen?

2 months ago

I've often found that when I have melted butter and have to add something to incorporate, I end up with a "oily" buttery mess that really doesn't seem to incorporate. I made this "Browned Butter Blondie" recipe last night -- see link to video, and followed the instructions (which I do when I'm doing a new recipe), and I put the melted butter in a bowl and added the light brown sugar, stirred it just like on the video, added light corn syrup & eggs & vanilla. I whisked and whisked to incorporate and the melted butter just didn't incorporate so I ended up using a paper towel to get rid of some of the butter. This isn't the first time this has happened in recipes. What am I doing wrong? Should the butter have been hotter? Thanks for any help!
