Strawberry Jammy Blondies

Blondies infused with strawberries and white chocolate chips

Wimbledon will soon be upon us, a bit later this year than usual, and I don’t know about you, but I always think of strawberries and cream when I think of the tennis tournament. Strawbs and cream are plentiful there after all.

I have made a few things over the past couple of years to tie in with that – Strawberry and Cream Cupcakes and Strawberry and CreamTruffles.



This year, after making raspberry blondies earlier, I decided to make a strawberry variation. These are a very simple bake and just require some strawberries mushed up before being added to your batter. For the 'cream' part, I went for some white chocolate chips – well they do taste creamy!



To finish off these blondies, I added a simple icing glaze on top and sprinkled on some red sprinkles (entirely optional). These taste very cakey and fruity with a real strawberry jam taste going on.

I love them and they do contain a good amount of fruit, so can’t be that bad surely (just ignore the butter and sugar…)!

  3. YuM!! I always forget that brownies and blondies and bars in general can be brought to another level with a glaze or frosting! I also love the inclusion of strawberries... as they are in season!
