Thick and Gooey Bakewell Blondies with almonds and Jam!

One thing that I love about my blog, is getting people to request for recipes. I honestly get so many every time that I can’t keep up, but it also gives me endless ideas that I can do (which is always handy). 

I have over 450+ recipes on my blog now, and I still have a list that seems a mile long of what needs baking. One thing that comes up time and time again is blondies. I feel like there was a Blondie hype a few years ago that never really faded, and I am okay with that! 

One of the main flavour of Blondies I get asked for was Bakewell Blondies… so here they are. I just couldn’t resist making them – because the idea of the flavours of a Bakewell tart put into a Blondie is just an all round win in my opinion! 

Almond and Jam… a delicious combination. Usually there is a pastry base, a jam layer, and almond filling, and decoration on top. These Blondies are basically the same, just without the pastry! 

You could easily get pastry into the bake, but it was another element to the bake that I just couldn’t really be bothered to include – and I just wanted to get the basics of the Bakewell Blondie down before I experimented any more! 

I decided in this one to use Raspberry Jam, but you can honestly use whatever jam you fancy! In my opinion, the classic jam flavour for Bakewell is Raspberry.. but in all honesty it can literally be anything you fancy. Strawberry is my second favourite, along with Cherry! 

If you wanted to use less almonds in general to make the mix a bit cheaper, you can leave out the ground almonds and up the flour to 275g in total. It’ll be basically the same mix as my White Chocolate & Caramel Blondies then which is already a hit even though its been on my blog for so little time! 

Blondies have always been bit of a weird one for me, but I utterly adore these. I am definitely much more of a classic brownie lover, but I can’t imagine a triple chocolate Bakewell brownie works better than these blondies – so I am rolling with it. 

I didn’t really decorate these Blondies, as they were beautiful enough as they were! However, you can easily add something you want on if you like!

You could use Water icing (icing sugar mixed with water for a drizzle), and then maybe even some glacé cherries?! Honestly.. the possibilities are endless with these beautiful blondies. 

I hope you love these! Enjoy! x

Ingredients

Blondies

  • 250 g Unsalted Butter (melted)
  • 125 g White Granulated Sugar
  • 125 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 3 Medium Eggs
  • 1 tsp Almond Extract (optional)
  • 100 g Ground Almonds
  • 200 g Plain Flour
  • 1 tbsp Cornflour
  • 200 g White Chocolate Chips
  • 250 g Raspberry Jam (or any other flavour!)
  • 50 g Flaked Almonds

Instructions

For the Blondies!

  • Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan and line a 9x9" square tin with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, add your Melted butter and Sugars and beat till smooth.
  • Add in the Eggs and Almond Extract and beat again till smooth.
  • Add in the Flour, Ground Almonds and Cornflour and beat till a thick blondie mixture is made - it really doesn't take long to create this mixture!
  • Add in your White Chocolate Chips and fold through.
  • Pour the mixture into the tin, and spread. Dollop on the jam, and lightly swirly through the blondie mixture.
  • Sprinkle over the Flaked Almonds!
  • Bake the Blondies in the oven for 30 minutes, or until there is an ever so slight wobble in the middle. (see notes below)
  • Leave the Blondies to cool in the tin till cool.
  • One top tip - to help firm them up before cutting, put them in the fridge for an hour or so once they have cooled - it creates a lovely fudgey texture!

Notes

  • Check the bake from 25 minutes onwards as some ovens run hotter, there should be a slight wobble in the middle when they're done. These took 30 minutes in my oven! Can still take up to 45 minutes.
  • I used Raspberry Jam in this recipe to stick with the 'classic Bakewell' theme, but it works well with others - I've used cherry and strawberry too! 
  • The white chocolate chips are optional, but they're delicious!
  • These will last for 4-5+ days in a tin at room temperature! 
  • You can add in 1tsp Almond Extract to get an extra almond taste if you fancy!
  • If you can't find cornflour, you can use an extra 25g of flour, but I still recommend cornflour over this. 

ENJOY!

    Love these!! To stop myself eating them all too quickly, I freeze them.
    How long once defrosted will they keep for please? And would I need to keep them refrigerated?
    Thank you 😊

    • lilywp on September 22, 2021 at 4:26 pm

      Hiya! Roughly 3 days, at room temperature. Hope this helps! Team Jane x



  4. Lucy on August 17, 2021 at 11:02 am

    Do you think it would be possible to use ground almonds for all of the recipe as i need to try and make these gluten free?

  5. Kerry Lines on June 16, 2021 at 2:23 pm

    I’m really excited to try these but would love to save some for my dad who is away at the moment. Has anybody tried freezing them? Does it work?

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 17, 2021 at 1:55 pm

    Love these..and I’m surprised as I’m not the biggest fan of alomondy tasting things! At first I used to think oh dear they look a little underbaked but I guess as they’re typically a brownie in a blond form then I think actually, brownies should be yummy and gooey so these should be too like yours are! I think it might be the colour of them that makes them look undertakes lol but actually, they’re not and bloomin lovely! Thank you! Xx

  8. Zoe on April 12, 2021 at 4:52 pm

    Oh my this recipe looks incredible! What’s your thoughts on baking these in a 9 x 13 tray? Specially 2 of them so i was thinking triple the recipe, reduced the heat a little and bake for a wee bit longer – do you think this would work? Thank you for your fabulous recipes ❤️

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 13, 2021 at 12:36 pm

      Hey! I havent tested the recipe in that sized tray so theoretically that will work but i can’t be certain xx

    Oh my goodness! This is such an easy recipe and they’re DELICIOUS!
    I asked my husband if he wanted to take some into work tomorrow and he stared at me in horror while clasping the blondie tin to his chest lol
    Guess that makes them an all round winner!
    Many thanks for the recipe x

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 29, 2021 at 2:19 pm

      Hello! AHHH that is amazing haha I am so glad you both loved them xx



  10. Layla Al-Najjar on March 28, 2021 at 3:38 pm

    Hi Jane,

    I tried making these yesterday and they’re soggy/squidgy (i.e. seem under baked) even though I left them in the oven for getting on an hour. Any idea what I’ve done wrong? Wasn’t sure if it was something to do with my mixing?

    Thanks, love your recipes x

  11. Sarah on March 20, 2021 at 7:36 pm

    Apologies if over missed this in the thread Jane. How many calories per slice would these be? (Serving 16)
    LOVE LOVE LOVE these by the way. Anything bakewell is a winner for me!

  12. Courtney on March 16, 2021 at 10:13 am

    Hi Jane! I am so obsessed with your recipes and everything seems to turn out so well! I was thinking of incorporating Battenberg into this recipe do you think it would work with Battenberg in the middle or on the top? X

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 17, 2021 at 2:40 pm

      Ooh not sure! I would say the middle should be okay?!

    This was very good but turned out much more like a coffee cake texture. I followed the recipe accordingly with a food scale? Any idea why they would be so fluffy? I did leave out the white chocolate but I don’t think that would be it.

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 9, 2021 at 7:17 pm

      This sounds like they are over baked! x



  17. Daniella Brunt on February 8, 2021 at 12:02 pm

    Hi Jane,

    I recently made these for my partner and he LOVED them so much so i’m now under strict instructions to keep using your recipes! (Which of course i don’t mind as i have found they are easy to follow and the flavour is amazing). I was wondering however if this recipe could be adapted to make bakewell cookies? If so do you have any recommendations? I was thinking some cute heart shaped ones for valentines day 🙂 x

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 8, 2021 at 4:43 pm

      This recipe can’t be used for cookies unfortunately as it’s just not close enough to a cookie recipe/texture! x



  18. Hannah Kay on February 5, 2021 at 12:16 pm

    Hi Jane, does the tin have to be square? I have a rectangular tin and worried it won’t work aswell!

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 6, 2021 at 4:37 pm

      A 7×11″ tin is the same volume so works the same! x

    Hello, I’m looking to make these but I would like to add actual Bakewell tarts on top (not a whole one per square, perhaps a quarter or half for effect) would this work? If so, would I add them before putting them in the oven or afterwards?

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 22, 2021 at 8:52 pm

      You would need to put them on at the end in my opinion x

    I love this recipe, have made it many times! Especially as it works out at around 350 kcals per square when divided in to 16. Could be much worse!

    I do find them a bit too buttery though, so just curious if there’s any suggestions you could make on how to put less butter in?

    Thanks!

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 18, 2021 at 11:08 am

      You can definitely try reducing the butter to 175-200g x

  24. Katherine on December 14, 2020 at 5:54 am

    Hello from NYC! I can’t wait to try making these blondies. I just wanted to confirm, is UK corn flour the same thing as US corn starch? Corn flour in the US would be the same thing as corn meal. Also, I try not to tweak recipes to much to keep its integrity in tact however, I’m not a big white chocolate fan. If the flavor isn’t that prominent I don’t mind it though. Would you they are a crucial part of the recipe? I saw you said they can be left out but I just don’t want to mess up the recipe. Thank you! I can’t wait

    • Jane's Patisserie on December 14, 2020 at 10:30 am

      Yes so for you it is cornstarch – and yes the white chocolate can be left out or it can be swapped so a different flavour chocolate if you prefer so you still get a melty element!



    • Sarah on January 18, 2021 at 8:24 am

      Hi yes it would be corn starch in the USA 👩‍🍳🌷

    Hi Jane, absolutely love your recipes and slowly making my way through them!
    I’ve made these bakewell blondies earlier today and once cooled popped them into my fridge to set and they have been in there a couple of hours now. I just wondered if I can leave them overnight and cut them up tomorrow or if it’s best to get them out today and store at room temperature? Can’t wait to try them x

    • Jane's Patisserie on December 13, 2020 at 10:10 pm

      I think they would be fine in the fridge over night as you can bring them back to room temp tomorrow, but if you are worried either way is absolutely fine! x



  26. Michelle on December 13, 2020 at 9:33 am

    Hi Jane,
    Would really like to make these but I only have a 9 x 13 tin. How much would I need to increase the ingredients and cooking time?
    Thank you!

    • Jane's Patisserie on December 13, 2020 at 9:39 am

      Recipe wise you need to add one about another half, but I don’t know the baking time as I never bake these in that size tin. x

    Jane’s blondie recipes are the only ones I’ve found that work! My family love me baking these for them and it only took me 2 attempts to cook them to the perfect consistency that I was happy with as everyone’s ovens are different. They’re so yummy and moreish! Highly recommend!

    • Hannah on January 31, 2021 at 2:26 pm

      Hi these look lovely! I’m planning on making some but my sister is vegan so I’m just wondering if you have any suggestions for what would work best in place of eggs please? You have some fab vegan bakes which I have tried before, just know my mum would love these but my sister would be disappointed if none for her! 🙃

    In the words of Craig Revell-Horwood: Uh-ma-zing….. if you like bakewell tart you must make these. Utterly delicious.

  33. Dino on November 24, 2020 at 1:32 pm

    Hi Jane, is it possible to bake two batches at once, or would the timings need to change?

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 24, 2020 at 4:35 pm

      It depends – are you baking into two 9″ square tins? If so it would be fine!



    • Dino on November 25, 2020 at 10:10 pm

      I baked two, both in 9” tins but even after 5/10 mins extra, they were far too gooey and haven’t firmed up in 10 hours (so far)



    • Jane's Patisserie on November 27, 2020 at 11:26 am

      It will have just needed slightly longer in the oven!

    Hiya Jane,

    Made these a while ago and they were incredible. I’m baking two batches for work but want to make one without any ground almonds/almond extract/flakes almonds in case of any allergies. Obviously it will take away from the ‘bakewell’ taste but will it work just the same if I take these out and it essentially be a raspberry jam and white chocolate blondie?

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 18, 2020 at 11:24 am

      You need to replace the ground almonds with more flour as they are quite a key component in the recipe, but otherwise yes! x



  35. Matt Graham on November 8, 2020 at 5:25 pm

    5 stars
    Could I use all flaked almonds rather than ground. Just to add more texture

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 8, 2020 at 8:17 pm

      The ground almonds are important to the base mixture, but you can add more flaked almonds on top!



  36. Lu on October 20, 2020 at 8:08 am

    Hello Jane,
    i want to bake these on thursday but due to some circumstances i want – and have to – bake these in paper muffin cases (not those thin ones but those thicker ones you can bake directly in without a muffin tin – i hope it makes sense)
    do you have any recommendation for the baking time? i don‘t want to lose the fudgy texture of these…

    thanks for you help <3

    greetings from germany!

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 20, 2020 at 8:27 am

      Hey! I’m really unsure as I have never baked these in those before – but I would imagine about 20 minutes? x



    • Brenda on March 4, 2021 at 3:42 am

      Aloha! This recipe looks amazing! I’d love to try it, though living in Hawaii, the measurements and temperature settings would take a bit figuring out. By any chance would you have a converted version of this recipe? 😋

    I have made this many times and loved it but I find it very hard to swirl the jam in as it is like a jelly. Could you give me a tip to help make it easier to swirl in?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 10, 2020 at 9:28 am

      It doesn’t have to be properly swirled in – it just needs to dollop and then move it about slightly! I use a cake skewer and find it works well x

    I was so looking forward to this but unfortunately it just has not cooked in the middle – even with the endless extra minutes I’ve added on (I’ve lost track, but it’s over an hour by now). I followed the instructions but it’s just very wet in the middle. I have no idea what’s gone wrong, especially reading so many comments of people who have enjoyed making this successfully.

    • JANET TOOZE on March 29, 2021 at 8:53 pm

      This happened to me too. No idea why as I followed the instructions to the letter. Any help would be great .

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 24, 2020 at 4:07 pm

      Typically a 9″ square is about the same as a 10″ circle, so I would either use that, or a 9″ circle – any smaller you may have issues with the bake xx

    Hey Jane!
    Have made these before and they are absolutely amazing!! Reminds me of a family recipe cherry cake we make! (which is quite difficult to get right!) but this is quite simple but taste and looks so complex and scrumptious!

    My local shop doesn’t sell raspberry jam, but the do sell seedless raspberry conserve and strawberry jam, so what do you think if I mix them both? Or do you think the conserve will mess it up a little

    Thanks a lot!

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 19, 2020 at 4:29 pm

      Yeah I’m sure a mix of them would be lovely! Convserves can sometimes be thick, sometimes be really runny – so you want something thicker! x

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 10, 2020 at 11:59 am

      If using something electric, you want the beater attachment rather than a whisk – or do it with a spoon/spatula and a bowl x

    Perfect!!! Oh wow…I’m in trouble now!! I made these for pudding today as my parents came for lunch. My mum didn’t speak the whole time she was eating them but announced at the end that they were 10/10. My dad who isn’t a dessert fan are the entire lot (I only managed to cut mine into 9 large squares which says it all!) & they’ve both taken some away with them. I’m definitely adding these to my fave things to make, thank you Jane!! I served them warm with ice cream (mum) & clotted cream (me & dad). Scrummy!!

    What measurements for the icing sugar and water should I use if I was to use it for decoration?? X

    • Jane's Patisserie on July 5, 2020 at 3:52 pm

      I would use maybe 75g or so, and add 1tsp of water at a time till you get the thickness you want x



    • Sophie on July 5, 2020 at 7:34 pm

      Thank you! Would you say that we could use 200g of butter instead of 250g to make it less greasy?? X



    • Jane's Patisserie on July 5, 2020 at 7:58 pm

      Yes you can do!! x

    This is one of my easy go to recipes now – so so yummy, they are a winner every time I put them out!

  57. Natasha on July 2, 2020 at 4:33 pm

    How do you stop them going cakey around the edges and still gooey in the middle?

    • Jane's Patisserie on July 2, 2020 at 7:35 pm

      Blondies/brownies will always have a more baked edge as it’s just natural – but generally how bad the cakey texture is often due to how the mixture is mixed, but often just the ovens! I find the edges are more baked on mine, but only a small amount, and then they set the same throughout the rest!



    • Natasha on July 2, 2020 at 8:43 pm

      Would you say they are over or under mixed if it’s quite cakey?



    • Jane's Patisserie on July 3, 2020 at 11:55 am

      That means they are over baked x

    Hello Jane!
    We absolutely love this Blondie recipe, we have made it so many time during lockdown. It’s my friends birthday soon and we were wondering if we could do this recipe in a cake form so like a Victoria sponge sort of thing, instead of having it in a square tin?
    Thank you for your amazing recipes Jane!
    Stay Safe.
    Julie x

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 30, 2020 at 7:24 pm

      Hey! So typically a square tin = a circle tin one inch bigger. So 9″ square = 10″ round! If you use a smaller tin, you would have to decrease the quantities but it would work! x

    Hi I made these the other day and they were the best thing ever!! I wanted to try and make them gluten free do you think I could use gluten free flour plain or self raising? Or do you not think it would work?
    Thanks

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 27, 2020 at 9:56 am

      I think it would be best with gluten free plain flour – the texture may be slightly different but it should be okay because of the ground almonds!



  61. Ros on June 24, 2020 at 12:53 pm

    Hi I love this recipe but I want to add the pastry base can you explain what pastry and how I would add this to the method please thanks 😋

  62. Shivani on June 22, 2020 at 6:55 pm

    This is just the recipe I have been looking for! Could you use an 8×8 square pan for this?

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 22, 2020 at 9:11 pm

      Ahh yay! An 8″ square is about 4/5 of the recipe, so reduce by about 1/5! x



  63. Cat on June 18, 2020 at 8:29 am

    What would you recommend replacing the white chocolate chips with is the family is of of chocolate at the moment?! These look incredible!

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 18, 2020 at 7:27 pm

      Hey! You can leave them out, but without chocolate they can be less blondie like! x



  64. Charlotte on June 16, 2020 at 12:38 pm

    Can I use large eggs in this recipe? Would I need to use 2 instead of 3?

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 16, 2020 at 9:28 pm

      Yes 2 large should be okay, but even three large should be fine too.

    Hi Jane,
    I want to make these in preparation for Wednesday as I have a lot to bake for the same day and wondered if they freeze well?
    Thank you!

  68. Jane on June 5, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    Hi Jane,
    I am going to attempt to make these and I was just wondering if the notes on the bottom of the biscoff blondie would apply to this bake? As when I made the biscoff blondies they turned out amazing. e.g after 30 minutes and they are still not cooked but them in the fridge to set and there should also be a slight wobble in the middle of the bake?
    Thanks,
    Jane

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 5, 2020 at 2:52 pm

      Yes the fridge technique definitely works for this one too and same rules apply! x

    Made this today in lockdown and distributed to all my isolating elderly neighbours! Got phonecalls off all of them saying how beautiful they were ! Very pleased as I’ve never made a blondie. These, as every recipe I have followed of yours were not only gorgeous and impossible to have one serving but also a huge success and relatively stress free- thank you!!!

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 27, 2020 at 9:52 am

      Ahhh I’m so glad it was such a hit!! Thank you!



  70. Tinca on May 25, 2020 at 12:54 pm

    Unbelievably easy to make and to die for. Even my mom praised them and tough she is a keen baker herself she rarely likes “this new stuff” (muffins, brownies, blondies..) that I make. A keeper!

    Would rolled marzipan work on top to truly max out those bakewell vibes? If so, should this be added on top before baking?

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 16, 2020 at 2:53 pm

      Hey! I’m really sorry but I don’t know – I’m not a marzipan fan!



  78. Alice on May 12, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Can you use caster sugar instead of granulated sugar? Cant wait to make this looks incredible, just made the mini egg cookie bar about 30 mins ago and not one slice left!

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 5, 2020 at 12:48 pm

      Ideally you would use granulated as sometimes using caster sugar can lead to a cakier texture – but its definitely worth a go! And I’m so glad!



  82. Kate on May 5, 2020 at 10:15 am

    These look incredible and I cannot wait to make them! You have so many amazing recipes, I love your flavour combinations.
    I don’t have any white chocolate chips, can I just cut up a white chocolate bar or is it better to wait and get the choc chips?

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 5, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    I see that they will last 4-5+ days in an air tight container, I just wondered if they would last even longer in the fridge?

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 26, 2020 at 3:16 pm

      I personally don’t often keep my traybakes in the fridge as they can dry out – the fridge can be useful to help ‘set’ them to make them easier to cut, but after that I believe room temp is best!

    Hi Jane! Thank you so much for this beautiful recipe. We are planning on making a big batch for a family wedding as an after dinner bite-size dessert. We wondered if these would be suitable for freezing ahead of the day? If so, how long do you think they’d keep in the freezer?
    Thanks so much!

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 26, 2020 at 3:21 pm

      Hiya! Ahh that’s okay!!! Yes they can definitely be frozen – generally, I say max is about 3 months, but I usually do about 1 month personally! The general rule is the longer something is frozen, the more the quality won’t be as good!

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 22, 2020 at 6:57 pm

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 3, 2020 at 9:57 pm

      Just sounds like you mixed it in so that it all sunk down – try swirling more lightly so that the jam stays at the top!

    I love these! I’ve never made a Blondie before, so no idea what the consistency should have been. I wasn’t sure if in making them gooey, it meant leaving them slightly underbaked?? I was trying to do the skewer in the middle and was just getting confused. In the end I might have “overbaked” them, as not sure I would describe the end product as gooey, but my God they were still so moist and yummy!

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 23, 2019 at 9:22 am

      Hey! The skewer test won’t work for a blondie, unfortunately – The timing varies in the recipe as peoples oven’s vary SO much, all it means is bake them for slightly less time!

Next time I will add more almond extract not quite enough almondy flavour I don’t think I took out at 25min mark as was ready but used my fan oven and I think my tray may of been larger so not as deep as yours but they are still delicious x

  108. Nichola on September 30, 2019 at 11:27 pm

      Hey! You can definitely try it but I’m not sure how strongly it’ll come through! You don’t want to add too much as it could affect the bake!

    Hello Jane,

    i have been one of your followers for a very long time and have tried many recipes but finally rustled up the courage to try these blondies. I Baked “Blondies” for the first time this weekend, Absolutely loved this recipe and so did the family. i was a bit worried as the top of the blondies seemed a bit over baked but when i cut them into squares they had a gooey and soft consistency. 10/10 from me 🙂

    i intend to bake a cake for my Mum’s birthday next weekend and just going to have a browse through your cake recipes now.

    Zarka xx

    (First time Baker) First time I made these over a week ago and my oh my they was delightful! My only problem I had was a little stodgy in the middle, maybe undercooked but still very nice! Currently have some baking in the oven for a family holiday to Wales :).

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 8, 2019 at 4:20 pm

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 19, 2019 at 12:39 pm

      Thanks! And because this recipe uses granulated sugar, not caster sugar. It works much much better with granulated.



  119. Lauren Andrews on August 18, 2019 at 4:51 pm

    Just made these and they’ve come out like a cake rather than a blondie. Where did I go wrong? I measured all the ingredients precisely and mixed with an electric mixer to ensure no lumps.

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 18, 2019 at 5:05 pm

      They’re probably a little over baked is all, but potentially they could have been over mixed a touch too (if you say you ensured there were no lumps) as the mixture took me very little time to mix x



  120. Julia Blatchford on August 18, 2019 at 1:28 pm

    Hi Jane, what does the cornflour do in this recipe? I don’t have any so would it matter if I left it out? Looking forward to trying these!

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 18, 2019 at 2:14 pm

      Yes, it’s important, which is why it’s in the recipe. It helps thicken it, and helps it bake perfectly. I would advise using the recipe as stated.

    Can’t wait to make these . My husband complains that I make too much chocolate and sweets based things (never!!) So these should keep him happy!
