Jam swirled blondies

These. Are. The. Bomb. These are so good that I had a friend say, “These are surprisingly spectacular,” and I had to agree. They’re also ridiculously easy to make. Let’s get into it:

You can use any kind of jam that you like! Pictured is strawberry rhubarb jam since I had a ton of rhubarb from a friend’s garden. I’d imagine any sort of berry, peach, or apricot would be fantastic, and so would peanut butter or chocolate hazelnut spread (of course).

The Recipe:

  • 1 1/2 sticks butter
  • 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1T vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1t baking powder
  • 1t salt
  • Your jam of choice (about 1/3 cup)
  • White chocolate chips (about 1/2 cup, optional)
  • A 350°F oven


These ingredients get mixed brownie-style:

In a pot, melt the butter and whisk in the sugar until dissolved.

Remove from heat and add vanilla and eggs. Whisk until well-incorporated.

Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt until just combined, then mix in white chocolate chips if using.

Spread the batter into a greased baking pan (easily fits a 10.25 x 15.25 x .75 inch pan) and use a knife or toothpick to swirl dots of jam around the top.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean and the top is a light golden brown. Let cool almost entirely before cutting. Makes a ton of bars and a boatload of people happy.
