Blond Cooked Roux is a medium, light-colored version of a cooked roux used in golden-colored sauces. The advantage of using the oven is that you free up your hands to do other things.


To make a Blond Cooked Roux use the classic proportions of an equal weight of flour and butter. Melt the butter and then add the flour and stir. Stir until the desired blond color is reached, or you can cover the roux and bake it in the oven at 350° F (177° C).

Just remember to stir occasionally (every 10 minutes or so). Blond Cooked Roux should cook in about 5 minutes.
