  • eggs 2 large
  • egg yolks 4 large
  • soft light brown sugar 200g
  • caster sugar 200g
  • unsalted butter 225g, melted, plus extra for tin
  • vanilla extract 1 tsp
  • almond extract ½ tsp
  • plain flour 250g
  • ground almonds 125g
  • baking powder 1 tsp
  • sea salt flakes ½ tsp
  • marzipan 100g
  • glacé cherries 150g, halved
  • flaked almonds 3 tbsp
  • demerara sugar 2 tsp


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Lightly butter a 20cm x 30cm brownie tin and line with a strip of baking paper so that the excess hangs over the longer sides of the tin.

  • Step 2

    Whisk together the eggs, egg yolks and sugars in a large bowl for 2 minutes until combined and lightened a little in colour. Pour in the butter and extracts, and whisk to combine. Add the flour, almonds, baking powder and salt, and mix together until just combined. Scrape the batter into the tin and spread into an even layer. Crumble over the marzipan and scatter over the cherries, flaked almonds and demerara sugar.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the blondies comes out with just a few moist crumbs. Cool fully before using the overhanging baking paper to lift the blondies from the tin.

  • Step 4

    Cut into pieces and serve. The blondies will keep for 3-4 days in a sealed container.
