I got Hannah Kaminsky’s book My Sweet Vegan for my birthday a few weeks ago, and I’ve been drooling over the delicious-looking treats pictured inside it ever since. I finally got a chance to make something, and the Butterscotch Blondies really tugged at my heart-strings so I made them first. I decided to add chocolate chips, because, honestly, it’s hard for me to bake without chocolate! Also, this was for my first “real” paid baking job! My dear friend Julie’s boss hired me to bake a set of desserts for his staff, so in the next couple of days I’ll be baking up a storm and posting pictures for you to see all the goodies!
These bars were very good, and the butterscotch taste was right on. However, the texture was nowhere near what Hannah’s photograph looked like; while the tops were nice and moist, the inside crumb of mine came out fluffy and more cake-like, while her’s looked fudgey and had much more of a brownie consistency (but made out of blondie-material). I was a little disappointed, but I’m hoping that next time I can just leave out a bit of the baking powder and get the same results she did. In any case, they tasted great, so I’m sure I’ll be making them again!
