Questions about blondies

A blondie brownie is perfect for everyone that loves a good, fudgy brownie in a lighter, fresher variation with white chocolate. We have answered the most important questions about blondies so you can find out how to make these soft and gooey beauties.

What are blondies?
Blondies are typically referred to as blonde brownies and have a moist, gooey texture. Unlike the classic brownie, the white chocolate brownie is made without cocoa powder and instead uses vanilla to add flavour. Additionally, they may also contain different kinds of nuts, typically almonds as they complement the vanilla flavour.
How to make blondies?
Ready to make some blondies? It is just as easy as making regular brownies. Melt some of the white chocolate and the butter in a saucepan and allow to cool off before mixing with a light and fluffy mix of beaten sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Fold sour cream, flour, and the rest of the white chocolate into the batter with lemon zest and chopped almonds. Bake in a lined pan until golden; they should still be gooey and slightly undercooked. Allow to cool, then chop into squares and enjoy!
What is the difference between blondies and brownies?
At first glance, they seem pretty similar, aside from the obvious difference in colour, and they contain most of the same ingredients. But it really comes down to the chocolate. To get a classic brownie, you use dark chocolate and cocoa powder to get the dark colour and intense, deep flavour. In a blondie recipe, you use white chocolate instead, often complemented with fresh lemon zest, creating a deliciously dense and chewy white brownie.
Can you freeze blondies?
In the unlikely event that you are able to stop yourself from eating it all, freeze your leftover blondies for longer storage. Wrap each piece in cling film and wrap them in an airtight container before freezing. You can also freeze the entire blondie cake before cutting it into pieces using the same method. Once you have baked the blondies and they have cooled off, leave the uncut cake in the baking pan. Wrap the pan in cling film, followed by a layer of tin foil to avoid freezer burn. If stored right, you can freeze your blondies for up to 3 months.
How long do blondies last?
If you do not eat them right away, blondies can last 3 to 4 days if stored in an airtight container at room temperature. If they are sealed tightly in a fridge, they can last up to a week. Storing in the fridge might affect the texture, but to get the soft, gooey, and dense texture again, reheat them in the oven or microwave until slightly warm.
How to know when blondies are done?
The blondie brownie should have a gooey and slightly undercooked texture. When the blondies are done, they will pull away from the sides of the baking pan and have a light golden colour on top. You can stick a small knife or toothpick into the middle of the blondies to test whether they are done. If the knife or toothpick comes out almost clean, you can remove the baking pan from the oven – remember to take them out when they are still slightly undercooked.
