What is a Jammie Dodger?

Voted Britain's best kids biscuit and with 40% of all Jammie Dodgers being devoured by adults; you are never too old to get stuck into a packet!
With their two golden, buttery shortbread biscuits, or cookies, sandwiched with a sweet raspberry jam, and a cute little heart cut out on top, these Dodgers are calling out to be stuffed into a blondie.

If I've already tempted you to give these utterly delicious blondies a try, then here's the ingredients and equipment that you'll need.
The recipe really is that simple and there are no fancy ingredients, so go and grab these:
- Jammie Dodger Biscuits - I'm using a mix of mini and regular sized Jammie Dodgers as they look great mixed together on the top of the blondie. You can use all mini or all regular if you prefer. If you can't get hold Jammie Dodgers, jam and cream biscuits or Linzer cookies work well.
- Caster or Superfine Sugar
- Soft Light Brown Sugar - This is one of my top tips for the perfectly fudgy blondie with a beautiful caramelly taste. If you're looking a darker, richer flavour than switch for a soft dark brown sugar instead.
- Plain Flour or All-Purpose Flour
- White Chocolate Chips - I love using Callebaut chips rather than chunks of white chocolate; they taste so creamy! Also they mix through the blondie batter more easily and you get a better distribution with the Jammie Dodger pieces.
- Eggs - Make sure that these are at room temperature; trust me it will be a lot easier to whisk them up.
- Butter - I'm using an unsalted butter with a pinch of fine sea salt, so I can regulate how much salt I'm adding. If you prefer you can use a slightly salted butter instead, just leave out the extra salt.
TOP TIP: If you can't get Jammie Dodgers, switch them for shortbread biscuits and add extra swirls of raspberry jam or try Linzer cookies
I make the blondie batter by hand with a balloon whisk and a large mixing bowl. You can also use a handheld mixer or stand mixer if you want to.
To bake the blondies you will need something to put the batter in. This recipe will work in any of the following:
I prefer to use a square cake pan with a loose base as it has high sides for my blondies to rise up. But whatever pan you use, make sure it is at least 1-inch deep, otherwise your blondie batter will escape when baking.
How to make the recipe
Full measurements and instructions can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page
Right then, grab everything you need, and let's get baking!
Make the blondie batter
Start off by melting the butter; you can do this over a pan of simmering water as a double boiler or in 30 second blasts in the microwave. Pop the butter to one side to cool slighty.
Add the caster and soft brown sugars into a large mixing bowl, giving them a stir (1). Then add in the melted buter. Mix everything together until the sugar has dissolved into the butter (2).
Next add the eggs, one at a time, whisking well between each one. The batter mixture will become smooth and runny (3). Then sieve the flour and fold into the batter (4).
Add in the white chocolate chips and the chopped Jammie Dodgers and fold everything together until evenly mixed (5 and 6).
Assemble the blondies
Line your cake pan or brownie pan with parchment paper. If you make sure the parchment overhangs the sides it makes it easier to lift the blondies out later (7).
Pour the blondie batter into the lined pan and level off with an angled palette knife or the back of a spoon (8). Add spoonfuls of raspberry jam on top of the batter and swirl through the batter (9).
Place the remaining Jammie Dodger biscuits on the top of the batter, pushing them into the batter slightly so they don't pop out when baking (10).

Frequently asked questions
This blondie recipe works best in a 9x9 inch square cake pan or brownie pan. It will also work in a 10x7 inch rectangle pan.
The recipe will make between 9 and 16 blondies, depending on how big you slice them.
Once cooled and sliced, the blondies should be kept at room temperature in an air-tight container.
The blondies are best eaten within 3 days, but will keep up to 5 days if stored correctly.
It is possible to freeze the blondies, the best way is to slice them up before freezing and wrap in baking paper. Place the wrapped blondies in an air-tight, freezer-proof container and freeze. They will keep for up to 1 month and remember to defrost properly before eating.
Recipe notes and top tips
- Swap Jammie Dodgers - Linzer cookies... try making your own; I love this recipe from Gemma at Bigger Bolder Baking.
- Don't overbake the blondies - This is cruial for getting that fudgy but holding together centre. If you overbake the blondies will become dry and cakey; underbake and they will still be liquid in the centre.
- Test the blondies with a skewer - I recommend testing 5 minutes before the bake time is up and if you need longer bake in 5 minute blocks. Test the edge of the blondies with a skewer, they should be firm and only have a few crumbs on. The centre of the blondies should have a little jiggle to them.
- Let the blondies fully cool down - I know that they smell amazing but you've got to let these guys cool properly. When baked, leave them in the pan to cool for about 10-15 minutes then lift out onto a wire rack to fully cool; then you can slice them up.

- 3 Eggs Medium
- 225 g Plain Flour or All Purpose Flour
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Bean Paste
- 12 Jammier Dodger Biscuits (Mini)
- 9 Jammie Dodger Biscuits (Regular)
- 100 g White Chocolate Chips or White Chocolate (Chopped)
- 4 tablespoon Raspberry Jam
- Preheat the oven to 180C/350F, and line a 9x9 cake pan or brownie tin with baking parchment.
- Melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat or in a microwave in 30 second blasts. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
- In a large mixing bowl, add the caster sugar and soft brown sugar. Mix together making sure there are no lumps. Then pour over the melted butter and mix together with a balloon whisk until well combined. The mixture should not be grainy, and the sugar should have dissolved into the melted butter.
- Add the eggs one at a time and whisk between adding each one. Whisk until the mixture is smooth and thick. Add the vanilla extract and stir through. You can use a handheld mixer or stand mixer if you prefer.
- Sieve the flour into the blondie mixture and gently fold together with a spatula until everything is well combined. Make sure there are no pockets of unmixed flour.
- Add in the white chocolate chips or chocolate chunks and fold into the blondie mixture.
- Cut the mini Jammie Dodger biscuits into chunks, then add into the mixture. Save at least 9 biscuits to decorate the top of the blondies.
- Pour the batter into the lined brownie tin, and level with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon. Place the remaining regular Jammie Dodgers on top of the blondie batter, pushing them down slightly.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes, until firm but still a soft in the centre. Leave the blondies to cool in the tin before lifting them out. Allow the blondies to completely cool on a wire rack before slicing.
