asy guys, relax! It’s not what you think! Blondies, NOT blonds!
Blondie [ˈblɒndi] Noun: blondie Plural noun: blondies Informal: a blonde-haired person, typically a woman or girl (usually as a form of address). In a sentence: “Have a brownie, blondie!” Formal: a small square of dense, pale-coloured cake, typically of butterscotch or vanilla flavour. In a sentence: “Cut blondies, brownies, or other sweet squares into very small pieces.”
A blondie (also known as a “blond[e] brownie” or “blondie bar”) is a rich, sweet dessert bar. It is made from flour, brown sugar, butter, eggs, baking powder, and vanilla, and may also contain walnuts, pecans, chocolate chips, or fruits. The interesting fact is that blondies preceded brownies! Go figure! If you dig into old cookbooks, you’ll find that blondies recipes date before recipes for brownies, though they both went by different names. In the mid-19th century, there were recipes that seemed to combine the flavors of butterscotch (butter and brown sugar), which was a very popular candy at the time, with flour and a leavening agent. The first recipes for brownies, on the other hand, didn’t appear in cookbooks until the beginning of the 20th century.
Dense and chewy or light and fluffy? Now – that is the question! Most people, myself included, will say – dense and chewy. And you can achieve that by melting the butter instead of using creaming method. Let me remind you, creaming method calls for creaming butter with sugar, which incorporates air into the mixture. If you like chewy blondies, you will only need to melt your butter, or for the extra flavor, make ! Combine melted butter with other liquid ingredients and mix with the dry ones. After you did that, pop anything you like into the mixture – chopped nuts, chocolate chips, dried or fresh fruits, candy, cookies, you name it! Let your imagination run wild because – as I’ve already mentioned – blondies are fun!
