Blonde Brownies/ Blondies

I love challenges that give me recipes that are on my bookmark for ages. This month's Home Baker's Challenge was by Shey of Just Not the Cakes and she had chosen an array of recipes related to the national cooking dates of USA. As per her list, January 22 is supposed to be National Blonde Brownie Day. Well, we are past that day, however, I don't think blondies need a day to bake!!!

The recipe she provide was this one, however the quantity was large and I was not able to halven it. I wanted to bake a normal brownie pan for my colleagues. After checking with her, I changed the recipe and tried and absolutely loved the result! If you are not very keen on brownies and are more of a white cake person, then this one is for you. I took half of the blondies to office and it was wiped out. My colleague who is not a sweet person like me, wanted a piece more but the men had already left an empty box behind!!! My little Azza hogged in one large piece and wanted more, though I had to restrict it for her. My B had a couple of them for breakfast. In short, they were absolutely well received. Thank you so much Shey, for including it in the challenge, or else God knows how much more I would have delayed baking this!!!
