These moist, buttery Strawberry Blondies are full of lemon flavor and bursting with sweet strawberries. Flavored with vanilla and cardamom and studded with chopped white chocolate! 


  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1 cup strawberries, chopped 
  • 3 1/2 ounces white chocolate, chopped, divided*


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line an 8 x 8 inch square pan with enough parchment paper to create an overhang of at least two inches on two sides.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, cardamom and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the melted butter with the brown sugar until combined. Add the vanilla, lemon zest and the egg and whisk to combine. With a spatula, fold in the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Gently fold in the strawberries and white chocolate.
  4. Pour the batter into the baking pan and smooth the top with an offset spatula.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and toss the reserved white chocolate over the blondies. Return to the oven for 1-3 minutes to melt the chocolate on top and until a toothpick comes out clean or with just a few crumbs when inserted in the center of the blondies. Place the pan on a wire rack and allow blondies to cool completely in the pan.


  •  Reserve roughly 1 1/2  ounces of the white chocolate add to the top of the blondies for the last few minutes of baking.
