I’m a Lacto Vegetarian. Before you start thinking out loud, a lacto vegetarian diet includes all sorts of dairy products like milk, yogurt, butter, cheese, cream but excludes eggs. My Doc has been after me for a long time to include eggs in my diet, but for which I have yet to develop an appetite for. Recently I have started to eat eggs in the form of baked goodies and yes earlier I used to enjoy only the eggless bakes. I had always thought that both brownies and blondies are one and the same with some differences of which I never showed an interest to find out. I was not entirely wrong also. while the brownies get the intense flavor from the chocolate used in them, the blondies get their flavor from the brown sugar that is used in them to bake.
For this week’s Avant Garde Cookies it was time for blog hop and I chose this Butterscotch blondies from Anu’s space, as I had never baked blondies before. I had a lot of kids at home and I was sure that they would really love them and it was also easy for me to pack them as we all went for a short trip. They all had a great time munching on them while travelling and it was also mess free for the elders to clean them up later. I also referred to Simply Recipes.
1. You can replace 1/2 of brown sugar with regular sugar.
2. You can also add chocolate chips and chopped walnuts along with butter scotch chips.
3. Beat the eggs only lightly till the yolk and white combine and not till frothy.
4. You can either halve the recipe or double the recipe very easily but adjust the baking time accordingly and use a correct sized pan accordingly too.
