History of National Butterscotch Brownie Day
It's a pity that no one knows the creators of National Brownie Day because they deserve to be appreciated for establishing a day to celebrate the delicious foods that make our lives a little bit sweeter.
Butterscotch brownies are also known as marzipan or golden brownies, as opposed to the more common chocolate brownies. Aside from color, a significant difference between blondes and macaroons is that blondes use vanilla instead of cocoa. Surprisingly, the blondes actually came before the macaroons. Butterscotch brownies have been around since the late 19th century, while chocolate brownies only came into existence in 1905.
Traditionally, blondes are made with common baking ingredients - flour, butter, eggs, baking powder with brown sugar, vanilla, and buttery fries giving it a unique color and flavor and surprisingly no burning smell. Some recipes add chocolate chips and nuts to their blondes for an extra kick.
The origin of butterscotch, the delicious dish behind the even better dish, can be traced back to the town of Doncaster in Yorkshire, England. A confectioner, Samuel Parkinson, started selling butterscotch pies as hard candy. The dish became so popular that the tins had the royal seal of approval. Butterscotch is made mainly by mixing butter and brown sugar, although some people also add cream, vanilla, and salt.
The earliest buttercream recipes use treacle, non-crystalline syrup made from the remains after sugar is refined, in place, or added to sugar. Unlike toffee, the sugar for butterscotch is boiled to the soft crack, rather than the hard crack, stage. Butterscotch is used for many things. It can be used as a topping, used to make pudding, used to make delicious chips for cookies or blondes, or even used as a hard candy.
