Butterscotch Blondies


Ever since I first heard that something called "blondies" (sister of brownies) existed.. I keep associating them with hair colors.. and I constantly ask why there isn't a reddie... maybe I should invent one..

Anyways, I've done the brownie thing a few times but never the blondie one. And so I decided to begin my adventure into blondie land (not that I'm not mentally one...) with these butterscotch brownies. Who doesn't like butterscotch? I sure do.


The best part while making this was adding the muscovado sugar to the hot, melted butter and stirring. The color turned into the most amazing golden brown.
The recipe is quite simple and quite fun and what I love about both brownies and blondies is that you can dress them up and dress them down. Spoon a scoop of icecream over a brownie/blondie and top with some chocolate or butterscotch sauce and you've got yourself an epic dinner party dessert.

Serve them on their own and it's the best bake sale dish you can make.



Recipe

115g unsalted butter
220g muscovado sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
180g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
100g chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180C and grease and base line a 20cm square cake tin.
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar with a wooden spoon until well combined. 
Gradually add the eggs and vanilla extract and stir together. 
Sift the flour and baking powder into the saucepan and stir again until combined.
Add the chocolate chips and stir well. 
Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 20 minutes. 
Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for 10 mins before cutting.

    Aaah gorgeous pictures as always! Sid, when you make cheesecake, what cream cheese do you use? We don't get cream cheese blocks in Dubai, do we?

  2. Heyyy.... I'm pretty sure I know you but the Anonymous thing is keeping this mysterious ;) I use Kraft Cream Cheese or Philadelphia.. although recently I've started using mascarpone cheese!
