Duff Goldman's Secret Trick For Getting Gooey, Soft Blondies
Blondies or blonde brownies simply offer a different flavor profile, since they typically don't include chocolate. Blondies have a relatively neutral base, with hints of brown sugar and vanilla, so you can add in virtually any mix-ins to customize them to your exact taste — but you must use the correct proportions of all the ingredients, no matter what secret ingredient you add.
In response to a fan who was looking for a way to create gooey blondies without the addition of chocolate, peanut butter, or butterscotch, Duff Goldman tweeted, "Maybe reconstitute some raisins." He went on to explain, "Soak the raisins in how [hot] water so the [they] plump up, then bake the blondies. They should get soft and deliciously mushy."
Although the expert baker suggests soaking raisins in water, you could presumably use a more flavorful liquid if desired. You might as well use a tip from one fan who tweeted "If you want "adult" blondies, you could always soak the raisins in Port or cognac."
