A classic blondie base topped with fresh cherries, semi sweet chocolate and a vanilla glaze



  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter
  • 3 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 TBS vanilla extract
  • 1 TBS vanilla bean paste or 1 tsp vanilla bean powder
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups cherries, pitted, cut into quarters
  • 3 oz roughly chopped, good quality semi sweet chocolate
  • 1 TBS heavy cream
  • 2 TBS confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste or 1/4 tsp vanilla bean powder


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Line a 13 x 9″ pan with parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray. Set aside
  • In a medium, heavy bottomed sauce pan melt butter over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until the butter starts to brown. (5 – 10 minutes)
  • Remove from heat and pour butter into a small bowl to cool at room temperature.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the brown sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • Slowly whisk in the browned butter until combined.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time. Mixing well after each one. Whisk in the vanillas
  • Fold in the flour until just combined.
  • Spread the batter in the prepared pan until evenly dispersed.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle half of the cherries evenly over the top, followed by the chocolate and then the rest of the cherries.
  • Return to the oven and bake until fully cooked, another 15 – 20 minutes. The edges will just start to brown and a tester will come out clean.
  • Let cool on a wire rack. Carefully remove the blondies from the baking pan by lifting the parchment. Cool completely.
  • Mix the heavy cream, confectioner’s sugar and vanilla bean powder or vanilla bean paste. Drizzle over top the cooled blondies.
  • Cut into 24 even pieces


Be sure to watch the butter as it is browning, it can go from browned to burned very quickly
