Blondie Recipe

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. Enjoy!

Tips For Making The BEST Blondies

  1. Melt butter and add brown sugar while the butter is still warm. Make sure to cool this mixture.  Let other ingredients, particularly eggs, come up to room temperature before you add them. You don’t want to add your eggs to hot butter and sugar or you’ll risk scrambling the eggs. Don’t overmix blondies; mix by hand instead of mixer for best results.

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

  2. sandy @ re

    These look fantastic, Jenny! Love all your special treats over here at Picky Palate! xo

  3. Sommer @ASpicyPerspective

    These make me happy just looking at them! Yum! A must try for sure! Pinning!

  4. Kathrin @ Ginger, Lemon & Spice

    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!

  5. Chelsea @chelseasmessyapron

    These are GORGEOUS Jenny! I love white chocolate and anything with poppyseeds – count me in! What a fun recipe. Pinned!

  6. Aimee @ Simple Bites

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

  7. Kris Mc.

    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!

  8. shelly (cookies and cups)

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

  9. Erin

    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!

  10. maria

    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 🙂

    1. Jenny

      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!

    2. Kathrin @ Ginger, Lemon & Spice

      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. 🙂

  11. Charlette

    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.

  12. Beth @ bethcakes

    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! 🙂

    White chocolate with lemon? They have to be delicious! Fortunately for me I just stocked up on white chocolate.

    P.S. Love your blog. 🙂

      I haven’t tried it with another flour, but I think you could substitute white whole wheat flour with no trouble.
