Forget Edward vs. Jacob or Republicans vs. Democrats....the REAL debate is brownies vs. blondies!!! I have made both of these sweet treats in the past few days, and I honestly still can't decide. Which side are you on??
The blondies: Nutty Blondies. Tester recipe for Vegan Bakesale (upcoming cookbook from Carla of The Vegan Year blog!). These were awesome, and they make a pretty convincing for the side of the blondies!! Vanilla-y, butterscotch-y, and nutty...and a texture right in the middle of fudgy and cakey. I especially love the crunch in the middle of the soft, gooey part! The brownies: Chocolate Brownies from The Joy of Vegan Baking. I have never made this recipe before, though I've loooooved everything else from this book, and I can't believe I waited! This was one of my favorite vegan brownies ever. Honestly. Very fudgy, which I loved, and a nice crispy crust formed on top, a perfect medium for powdered sugar. And they have applesauce in them instead of oil! Wow!! Another strong case, indeed.
