My White Chocolate Lemon Poppyseed Blondies are perfect for Spring Time entertaining!

White Chocolate Lemon Poppyseed Blondies

Lemon poppyseed is one of my favorite combinations.  Seems to always be a sweet and delicious cake of some sort.  I decided to turn that combination into one delicious blondie if I might say so myself.  It’s dense, chewy and lemon poppyseed delicious.

Dust with a little powdered sugar and you’ve got yourself a beautiful dessert to serve to family and friends.

It’s always a pleasure teaming up with Gold Medal Flour.  I’ve used their flour for years and years.  Nothing better!  You should be able to find lemon curd in the jam section of your grocery store.  For those of you with Trader Joe’s, you can get it there too.  Other than that, pretty standard pantry and refrigerator items.

    White chocolate and lemon, and lemon and poppyseeds, are such good flavor combos! Love that you added them all up in a blondie. Looks like springtime! 🙂

    Oh my, two of my favorite things chocolate and lemon!!! I cannot wait to make these. Thanks so much for sharing this with us all.

    maria says:

    hey, these look amazing!!Is it possible to replace the lemon curd with just zest and juice? …i have no idea where to get lemon curd in germany (or how it’s called..).
    Thanks 🙂

      Jenny says:

      Hi Maria, you can certainly try just adding zest and maybe 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice instead of the lemon curd. Let me know how it turns out!

    • 24.2

      Maria, just make it yourself it is very easy!! I’m from Germany too and just discovered lemon curd last year – it is very unique in flavor and totally worth trying!
      You basically just need lemon juice, eggs, butter and sugar. I have a recipe on my blog if you’re looking for one. 🙂

    Erin says:

    Just popped a batch in the oven with key lime curd instead of lemon as that was all I had on hand. Can’t wait to try it!

    Oh I DEFINITELY need to make these! I have had lemon on the brain lately!

    Kris Mc. says:

    Love the combination of Lemon curd and white chocolate! Do you know if doubling the recipe would work well (baking it in a larger pan of course)? I’d love to take a large batch to school before Spring Break! They look so FRESH, my mouth is watering! Thanks!

  28. 28

    Love, love, love this whole flavour combo, but I never would have thought to make blondies. You’re so creative, Jenny!

    WOW these look soooo lovely!!!
    I will have to try them very soon because they’re just what I was looking for. I have never done something with poppyseeds yet and wanted to try and I just happen to have some freshly homemade lemon curd in the fridge!
    Thanks for the idea!

    Carrie says:

    I need to try these, but where do you get lemon curd at? I have never heard of that before.

    nancy k says:

    These look great and I would love to try them but I seems to always have a problem when a recipe calls for melting white chocolate chips. They either never melt or they bind up into a hard mess. Do you have any tricks and/or a specific brand you use that will melt easily? Thanks so much!

    Kimberly says:

    These turned out fantastically! And, I don’t think mine were completely cooked all the way. I cooked them at 350 for 40 minutes, and they came out like a gooey brownie, which didn’t bother me, but also didn’t look like your picture. The best part was the bottom and edges of the squares, as they had turned into crunchy, chewy, lemony, pieces of perfection. Thanks for the recipe! I will definitely repeat it again, and this time I may even bake it until it looks much like your picture.
