“When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this – you haven’t.” ― Thomas A Edison
Usually (almost always ) I am a through and through chocolate girl. And I would take a brownie over a blondie any day of the week. So if I have to be impressed by a blondie , it has to be THAT good. I already have a chocolate chip blondie recipe on the blog , which is to die for , but I wanted to come up with an equally good version for people who prefer not to bake with eggs.
This blondie is fantastic . A blondie is not just a cookie bar. It has to be just like a brownie in texture – chewy with a fudgy centre ,just sweet enough, that crinkly top and a wonderfully butterscotch flavour. This one is all that and more.. not merely a “good enough” compromise for the sake of eggless baking !
And they couldn’t be easier to put together ! Its literally a matter of tossing in the ingredients into a saucepan and mixing them up! And like all blondies, they are infinitely customisable . Keep them plain , add in butterscotch chips (yum!) , nuts (if you like crunch) or dry fruit! Maybe Swirl in some cream cheese or caramel or Nutella? I added a handful of dark chocolate chips …. couldn’t keep my distance from the chocolate after all!
Take it from me …. you will not miss the chocolate or eggs in these blondies! They are positively addictive!
PS . I do realise my blondies aren’t exactly “blonde” … thats because I used dark brown sugar. Light brown sugar will give you blonder blondies!
