Brownie cake has been able to get a lot of love from sweets fans from all over the world. There are several options for its preparation. During the experiments, another dish called Blondie appeared. In honor of him, a special holiday was even created – National Blonde Brownie Day. It is celebrated every year on January 22nd.
There are many different versions of the creation of the famous dessert. Most researchers agree in time that the recipe was invented at the end of the 19th century. According to one opinion, it was invented by chefs from a hotel in Chicago, where a major event was planned.
Other scientists have come to the conclusion that the dessert belongs to the authorship of F. Farmer. In her recipe book, chocolate was missing from the list of ingredients. It is by this principle that the modern Light Brownie is prepared. According to this version, Blondie first appeared, and later another one was added to the same products, obtaining a new sweetness.
There is practically no difference in cooking, but desserts differ in taste. Blondie has more toffee. They do not have a clear scheme for adding ingredients. If desired, you can add any additions that do not interfere with enjoying the original taste.
- Modern culinary specialists are accustomed to believing that Brownie appeared first, and only then Blondie. But if we assume that the original recipe was kept by Farmer, then this opinion is erroneous.
- In Brownie, the taste of chocolate chips, which serves as the main decoration, is lost, in order to fully experience it, you can add a little to Blondie.
- Some recipes contain completely unexpected ingredients, such as marshmallows, maple syrup or pumpkin.
How to celebrate
It’s definitely not worth spending the day alone. Ideally, you can go for a walk with friends and look into a street cafe. There is brownie on almost every menu, but you will have to work hard to find a light one.
If you wish, you can try yourself as a real chef. The recipe is quite simple, but beginners will need help. Cooking together is more fun, so do not miss this opportunity to be with friends and get positive emotions.
