Sasha's Kitchen: Cherry Chocolate Chip Blondies

My husband has a professed hatred for cherries. He won't eat anything with them, as long as he knows they are there. In other words, cherry pie, or the cherry galette I've been wanting to make are both off the table. But, I managed to use some delicious local sweet cherries in these blondies without him realizing that they were cherries that added the lovely tangy sweetness the blondies. In other words, he was fooled and loved this new dessert. Blondies are so fun - like brownies but you can mix them up with almost any flavor. These were a huge success, using delicious seasonal cherries, and I can't wait to try out a new blondie flavor soon. Chopping up these sweet red cherries may make it look like there was a vampire attack in your kitchen, but never fear, it just looks like blood!

Sasha's Cherry Chocolate Chip Blondies
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cups canola oil
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup chopped (pitted) red cherries
1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

To prepare the blondies, beat together the eggs,and brown sugar. Beat in the dry ingredients and the canola oil until smooth and mix in the chopped cherries and chocolate chips. Pour in a brownie pan lined with parchment paper and bake in an oven preheated to 350 for thirty minutes. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before lifting from the parchment paper and slicing.



  1. They look delicious! I hope he enjoyed them. Did you tell him about the cherries? I have to do the same with ground turkey for my husband! LOL!!!

  2. I just bought a big bag of cherries the other day and this bar recipe is just perfect for those. Love the texture and you picture is tempting. Thanks for sharing.

  3. That happens in my house, if I don't tell them I've used some "healthy, yucky ingredients" they'll often eat it without knowing. Oddly that have never seemed to work on me.

  4. Deliziosi, questi dolcetti! Una gran bella ricetta, mi piace :-)
