Bakewell White Chocolate Blondies with Raspberry or Cherry Jam Centre Recipe

White Chocolate Bakewell Blondies

Kachina @ Sweet Mouth Joy
Filled with creamy white chocolate chips, these blondies are soft, chewy and sweet. The layer of raspberry jam running through the middle of the almond blondie gives it the classic Bakewell flavour with a white chocolate twist.

Servings 16 blondies


  • 1 ⅔ cups (215 g) white chocolate
  • ½ cups (115 g) unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs (large)
  • ¼ cups (60 g) caster sugar (golden or white)
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ cups (65 g) plain / all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon cornstarch (cornflour in the UK)
  • ¾ cups (85 g) ground almonds
  • a pinch of salt
  • ½ cups (90 g) white chocolate chips
  • 1 cups (150 g) raspberry or cherry conserve/jam (roughly ½ jar)
  • 5 teaspoon flaked almonds (optional, to decorate)


  • Pre-heat oven: 185°C / 165°C (fan) / Gas Mark 4 ½ / 365°F
  • Melt the white chocolate and butter (microwave for 45-60secs, 15secs at a time), until smooth and fully combined.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs until foamy and then add the sugar and almond extract, beating until smooth.
  • Drizzle in the melted white chocolate and butter mixture, beating together until your mixture is combined.
  • Sift the flours into the mix and add the ground almonds and salt. Fold these into the mixture gently.
  • Stir in the white chocolate chips until just spread evenly throughout.
  • Line a tin with greaseproof/baking paper and pour half of the mix into the pan, smoothing into an even layer.
  • Microwave the jam for 15secs and then gently spread this across the blondie mix, leaving an inch/few cm border at the edges.
  • Cover the jam layer with the remaining blondie mix, smoothing the top gently and sprinkling flaked almonds on top (if using).
  • Bake for 25-30mins until it no longer wobbles and has a golden top. It will harden further as it cools. Once cooled, remove from the tin and cut into squares.
