Do you like blonde brownies? I love them. For years, I have meant to adapt my mother's blonde brownie recipe to a chocolate chip recipe that worked in the Dutch Oven. Finally, for the IDOS 2004 Fall Convention, I just went ahead and played around and made them. Three double batches later, here's the recipe for you to try!
When I made this recipe at IDOS in 2004, I changed one minor thing from my mother's recipe. (Duh.) Well, this change was accidental. The original recipe called for a small amount (1/2 teaspoon) of baking powder. When I copied the recipe into the computer, I forgot that ingredient. I never noticed. In fact I think I liked them better this way.>p>A day or two after the convention, I watched an episode of "Good Eats" where Alton Brown made brownies. He didn't add any baking powder either. Since everyone at the convention liked the brownies, I say go with the recipe above. If you think the baking powder is needed, add it back in.
