Blondies, Who Knew?



So there I was in my kitchen, my mouth hanging open in a frozen gasp and my eyes popping out of my head. It was one of those eureka moments. You know the one. Brownies not made of dark or milk chocolate but white chocolate. I’m clearly a genius.

Not.



Then I was left with the difficult task of naming my brain child. Whities was a bad choice for obvious reasons. Plus they wouldn’t really be white. It’s kind of difficult to bake white food. So beigies? No, that’s just lame and rather hard to pronounce.

Naturally I couldn’t get it out of my head. So I googled it like a good obsessive compulsive person and, to my great disappointment, I not only found a name for them but also found they already existed. Blondies. There’s not much left in the world that someone hasn’t already thought of. Silly me. I never would have thought of that.



Blueberries were on sale. I like blueberries. Blueberries and white chocolate go together nicely. So there you have it. Sometimes it’s best you don’t over think dessert.

White Chocolate Blueberry Blondies



Source: My imagination

1 cup white chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 eggs
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup blueberries

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and position a rack in the center. Line a 8 or 9 inch pan with parchment paper with enough overhang to grasp then set it aside.



In a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over simmering water melt the chocolate and butter, stirring occasionally. Once it’s melted and smooth take the bowl off the heat and stir in the sugar using a whisk. Add the vanilla next then the eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition. Finally whisk in the flour and salt until the mixture is smooth.


Pour half the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the blueberries evenly over the top and cover it with the rest of the batter. Bake it for 25 – 30 minutes until the tops are shiny and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out with only a small amount of batter and moist crumbs clinging to it. Let it cool completely on a cooling rack before slicing into squares and slipping it out of the pan using the parchment paper overhang. Enjoy!

    I, personally, am partial to the name “beigies”. We all know that beige is the most underrated color out there. Without beige, what color would Band-Aids or Silly Putty be? And also, even if something was already invented, if you thought of it and didn’t know then it still counts.

    With that being said, I love the blueberry beigies that you invented. They look majorly delicious.

    This looks SO delicious! So maybe blondies were already invented but I’m still impressed that you made this recipe up on your own.

    I think your original name is much more fun than blondies they look delicious no matter what the name though!

    Oh man, the disappointment of discovering that someone’s invented something similar before! Well, rest assured, you are still actually totally original – because in your mind, in your world – YOU discovered it, and only later found out it had already existed! So, keep up the pride for inventing your world’s very first Beigies! Love the name by the way – far cooler than silly Blondies!

    What an ideal summer dessert! I’m not a fan of white chocolate by itself, but combined with the blueberries, it sounds just right

      Awesome! White chocolate isn’t as appreciated as it should be. I’m glad to hear it has another supporter.
