Sour Cherry Blondies
These Sour Cherry Blondies are a simple and delicious dessert recipe. This recipe only takes forty minutes from start to finish and produces 16 squares.
I tend to always make chocolate desserts but today I wanted to change it up and make a super tasty dessert that does not contain any chocolate.
I really like Blondies so I decided to start with a blondie base and go from there. I added some sour cherries to my basic Blondie recipe to create this new treat.
I started by combining some light brown sugar with melted butter, an egg, vanilla and salt. Once they were well mixed I stirred in some flour and baking powder.
I stirred in the pitted sour cherries last and was careful not to stir too much as the cherries break apart fairly easily and I wanted to try to keep them intact.
I poured the mixture into a grease eight inch square pan and baked for thirty minutes until a toothpick inserted in the centre came out clean.
I allowed the blondies to cool before slicing and serving. If you try to cut them too soon they will just fall apart and you will have a huge mess.
These turned out amazing! I love the combination of the toffee flavour of the blondies mixed with the tart sweetness of the cherries.
These squares are one of my new favourite desserts.
If you are in search of an awesome chocolate free dessert you need to make these. They are so easy and taste amazing!
