Brownie vs. Blondie

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.
Well, since I can't decide which one I like better, I think I'll just take both! Here's to really good blondies and brownies!

I love me a good blondie, but I don't know if anythinggg can compare with a dense, fudgy chocolate brownie.

Hmmmm...I can't choose either. I love 'em both. I think blondies may be a TAD better. But only a tad. Then again, I am a vanilla ice cream girl instead of chocolate.
