I used to be OBSESSED with bakewell tarts and I’ve been getting some serious cravings recently! So I thought why not create my own treat to satisfy my cravings.

Blondies are like brownies but instead of chocolate, they’re vanilla flavoured. I’ve put a bakewell twist on the classic blondie, by adding an almond and cherry flavour and they are deliciously morish (if I do say so myself!).

The rich flavour of the brown sugar compliment the sweet tangy cherry jam perfectly, and the crunchy flaked almonds add a bit of bite to the soft and gooey blondie.

This is a fools proof recipe for perfect bakewell blondies every time! It’s a super simple recipe which will only take you around 30 minutes to make, including baking time.

This makes quite a large batch so it’s an ideal treat for a entertaining, or gifting! They keep for a few days in an air-tight container, OR you can always pop these in freezer so you have a delicious go-to treat whenever those sweet tooth cravings hit!!

Give it a go and let me know how you get on!! πŸ™‚

Prep time: 10 minutes

Baking time: 20-25 minutes

Total time: 30-35 minutes

Serves: 24

Ingredients

  • 2 cups vegan butter, melted
  • 1.5 cups brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 tsp almond essence
  • 2 flax egg*
  • 2 cup all purpose / plain flour
  • 6 tbsp cherry jam, smooth
  • 1/2 cup flaked almonds

Instructions

  1. Make your flax egg by mixing 1 tbsp milled flax seeds with 3 tbsp hot water. Leave to set for 10 minutes, it will become thicker and sticky.
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 180ΒΊC, and line your baking tray with baking paper.
  3. Whisk your butter and sugar until the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Add your vanilla and almond essence, and flax egg and whisk until combined.
  5. Stir in your flour until combined, the mixture will be thick. Do not over beat the mixture as this will produce a more cakey texture.
  6. Spread your mixture evenly in your baking tray and bake for 15 minutes.
  7. Heat your jam up with a splash of water, approximately 3 tbsp. Pour it evenly over your blondies, and pop them back in the oven for 5-10 minutes until the jam has become thicker and stickier.
  8. Evenly sprinkle your flaked almonds over the jam and cool for at least 1 hour.
  9. Slice and ENJOY!!! πŸ™‚
