For the full recipe and instructions scroll to the bottom of the page for the recipe card.

Fresh Strawberries

Using fresh strawberries in this recipe adds a natural sweetness and juicy texture that perfectly complements the dense, chewy blondies. Plus, strawberries are a great source of vitamin C and antioxidants, making this dessert a slightly healthier option than some other sugary treats.

To ensure you get the most flavour out of your strawberries, make sure they are ripe and use them within a day or two after purchasing. You can also experiment with different types of strawberries, such as wild strawberries, for a more unique taste.

How to make strawberry blondies – step by step

For the full recipe and instructions scroll to the bottom of the page for the recipe card.

Melted butter in a pyrex jug

Gently melt the butter in 10-second bursts in the microwave. Be sure to keep stirring and not pit over the sides.

brown sugar and caster sugar in a bowl

Add the brown sugar and the caster sugar to a bowl.

Add the melted butter to the sugar.

Mix together until combined and fluffy.

Stir in the three eggs one by one. (Photographed before I added the third in). Stir in one by one and make sure your eggs are room temperature to avoid curdling your batter ( if this happens, scroll down to my top tips).

Mix together until the eggs are combined.

Vanilla extract

Add the vanilla extract and stir in.

Sieving in the flour into the blondie mix.

Sieve in the flour, baking powder and salt and mix well.

Chop your fresh strawberries and stir them through the batter.

Bake the strawberry blondies until golden and crisp on top but still gooey in the centre.

Top Tips

Line your baking tray with greaseproof paper. This will make it easier to remove the blondies from the dish and prevent them from sticking.

Additionally, for an extra burst of strawberry flavour, consider adding some fresh diced strawberries on top of the batter before baking. You can even serve the strawberry blondies decorated with whipped cream and studded with sliced strawberries.

If your batter curdles, add a little flour bit by bit and mix gently in. This should help the batter come together again.

Serving Suggestions – strawberry blondies

When it comes to serving, you can enjoy these blondies warm or at room temperature.

If you like fresh strawberry blondies warm and gooey, simply microwave them for a few seconds before serving.

Alternatively, you can serve them with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a decadent dessert.

These strawberry blondies make perfect afternoon treats, warp them in beeswax paper and take them on an adventure. Berry picking in a meadow or flowers, or bargain hunting at the local charity shop.

Substitutions and variations

Strawberry White Chocolate Blondies

Add some white chocolate chips into the blondie batter at the same time as you add the strawberries. You can also melt some white chocolate and drizzle it across the top of your cooked blondies too.

Strawberry Jam Blondies

Instead of using fresh strawberries in your blondies why not stir some strawberry jam throughout your blondie batter? It’s sweeter and easier to get your hands on during the colder months of the year.

Strawberry Lemon Blondies

Once your blondies are cooked and cooling, prick the top with a toothpick and brush over a sweet lemon drizzle, allowing it to soak into the blondies. If you want a stronger citrus flavour, add some lemon juice or zest to the blondie batter before it’s baked.

Strawberry Almond Blondies

Decorate your fresh strawberry blondies with sliced almonds. It looks beautiful and the sweetness really adds to the caramelly flavour.

Add cream cheese

For a more indulgent version, fold in some chunks of cream cheese into the batter for a creamy, tangy surprise.

Change the fruit

One delicious twist is to swap out the strawberries for other fruits like raspberries or blackberries.

Herbs and Spices

You can also try adding a sprinkle of cinnamon or a pinch of sea salt to balance out the sweetness.

If you’re feeling adventurous, add an earthy route by adding some chopped herbs like rosemary or thyme to the batter. The resulting blondies will have a unique, unexpected flavour that pairs perfectly with a glass of wine.

Storing strawberry blondies / Making ahead of time options

Once you’ve made a batch of strawberry blondies, you’ll want to make sure they stay fresh for as long as possible. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days. If you want them to last longer, pop them in the fridge for up to a week.

You can also freeze and defrost at a later time. A few seconds in the microwave will make these taste fresh and hot and you wouldn’t know they weren’t fresh from the oven.
