Blondies or often called blond brownies, are these rich, dense and chewy bars or cookies with a wonderful butterscotch-y flavour. These ones are made with oats, sweetened condensed milk, light muscovado sugar, dark chocolate chips and they are deeeelicious...
This is a very easy recipe to do... the hardest part for me is to stop myself from drinking the sweetened condensed milk.
Recipe by Nigella Lawson
Makes 16 pieces
200 g porridge oats, not instant
100 g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
150 g soft unsalted butter
100 g light muscovado sugar
1 x 397 g can condensed milk
1 x 170 g packet dark chocolate chips
1 x 23 cm square cake tin or 1 x foil tray approx. 30 x 20 x 5 cm
Preheat the oven to 180 C and line the cake tin with foil - this makes it easier to get the Blondies out later.
Combine the oats, flour and bicarb in a bowl. In another bowl mix or beat the butter with the sugar until pale and airy. Then add the condensed milk, followed by the oats mixture.
When these are well mixed, beat in the egg and fold the chocolate chips. Pour into the tin and smooth it down with spatula. Cook in the oven for 35 minutes. The Blondies should feel a tad under-cook, but don't worry, it should be like that.
And now, if you want just chocolate... although saying that this is more than just chocolate brownies, it's Guinness & Walnut Brownies! but I prefer its nickname: Man Brownies.
I found this recipe from one of my favourite food blogs Dear Love Blog and it's been sitting in my 'to-bake' folder for sometime now and I'm glad this brownies finally made it to my table and my stomach. This brownies is out of this world, it's so good. Adding Guinness to brownies may seem odd, but it works.
If you want to know how to make this Man Brownies, and see a better picture, which by the way is also my desktop background for one of my work computers, simply click here. The other computer has a picture of slowly roasted pork belly, for your information... I know, I know, I need help.
Spaghetti with Marmite, again for dinner... This is addictive.
