Maple Walnut Blondies
Maple Walnut Blonde Brownies are a creative twist on traditional blondies.
They come from the folks at King Arthur Flour, who call them Maple Walnut Brownies, a name I find misleading since they are definitely more like blondies than a brownies, to my way of thinking.
These blondies (or brownies) are moist and chewy with a definite flavor of maple thanks to the addition of both maple syrup and maple flavoring.
You should be able to find maple flavoring in with vanilla and other flavorings at your grocery store.
If you haven't guessed yet, I love maple walnut!
Maybe it's because I grew up in Connecticut where I developed a love for maple walnut ice cream early in life.
Maybe it's because my Mom has been baking maple walnut cakes every year since she was a teenager for my grandmother's birthday.
Maybe it's just because it's a wonderful flavor combination!
If you are like me, a fan of maple walnut, I hope you add Maple Walnut Blondies to your list of must try recipes. They are also a great change from your standard brownie or blondie recipe.
