Jammie Dodger biscuits are one of my favourites, I remember eating them as a child and always picking them first out of biscuit selection boxes. If you’re not from the UK, they are a cookie with jam sandwiched in between two layers of biscuit. They have such a fun appearance – with the splash effect on the biscuit and heart shaped hole revealing the jam in the middle. It’s no wonder they are the most popular kid’s biscuit in the UK! I’ve incorporated yummy Jammie Dodger biscuits into these soft gooey Jammie Dodger Blondies, as well as adding some extra jam (because that’s the best bit!) If you’ve not heard of blondies before, they are the white chocolate version of brownies, and if you enjoy these you’ll love my Raspberry & White Chocolate Blondies too!
Step by step…
I started by melting the butter and golden caster sugar together in a pan on a low heat. Once the butter was melted, I took the pan off the heat and added the white chocolate. I left it for a couple of minutes, then stirred it in.
I added the eggs, whisking as I poured them in to make sure the mixture didn’t cook the eggs. Then I stirred in the vanilla.
Then I added the flour, and poured the batter into a lined traybake tin. I placed the Jammie Dodger biscuits in a neat pattern on top, then added blobs of jam all around the biscuits, once I was happy with the amount of jam I swirled it around using a butter knife.
What if I can’t find Jammie Dodgers?
You can use any other jam filled biscuit or linzer biscuit. Or you could even make your own homemade Jammie Dodgers, there are lots of recipes available by doing a Google search. Or you can use my Vegan Jammie Dodgers recipe!
How do you know when the Jammie Dodger Blondies are baked?
I bake them in my oven on 160C Fan for 30 minutes until they are golden brown all over like in the photo above. Using a skewer inserted in the centre doesn’t give a clear indication that they are done because blondies are meant to be gooey and almost a little under cooked. Blondies are the white chocolate version of brownies and they are not like cake. They will also set more as they cool down, wait until they are cool to remove them from the tin.
I’ve made these Jammie Dodger Blondies probably more than any other recipe on my blog as my best friend loves them! More than 10 times by now, and I always get the same results. If you have followed the recipe exactly and used the same size tin you can do the same. Different ovens can run at slightly different temperatures so an oven thermometer is the best way to check the temperature is accurate, you can get them for under £10. If you have a different sized tin, they will need longer in the oven. If you have changed any ingredients this will affect the recipe and they won’t turn out the same way as mine.
What can I do differently?
You could use mini Jammie Dodger biscuits if you wanted to cut the pieces smaller. I like to give everyone one big Jammie Dodger biscuit per piece, but you could also cut them in half – I like to cut them diagonally when doing this. You can use different flavours of jam for example strawberry, raspberry, blackcurrant or cherry. I’ve also made these before using Lemon Jammie Dodger and lemon curd! You can also add white chocolate chips to the blondie batter, I’ve done this before at my friends request to make it extra chocolatey!
If you can’t get hold of regular caster sugar, you can also use golden caster sugar.
These Jammie Dodger Blondies were an absolute hit with my friends! They are so yummy, the sponge is sweet from the white chocolate, the Jammie Dodger biscuits are delicious of course and the extra bits of jam are definitely the best bit!!
What white chocolate should I use?
The majority of times I make this recipe I use a supermarket own brand white chocolate or Callebaut callets, if you use a better quality chocolate, like Green & Black’s for example, it will improve the flavour. But of course supermarket own brands are great for keeping costs down. I would advise avoiding cooking or baking chocolate, and also I don’t recommend using Milky Bar.

Yummy white chocolate blondies swirled with jam and decorated with Jammie Dodger biscuits
- 200 g Butter or baking spread I use Stork

- 150 g White chocolate broken into pieces
- 3 Eggs large
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 225 g Plain flour
- 12 Jammie Dodger biscuits
- 6 tbsp Strawberry Jam or other flavour of your choice
Pre heat your oven to 160C Fan/180C/350F/Gas Mark 4, and grease and line a 12" x 9" traybake tin
Melt the butter with the golden caster sugar in a pan on a low heat
Once the butter has melted, take the pan off the heat and add the white chocolate. Leave it for a couple of minutes to melt, then stir together. Leave the mixture to cool for 5 minutes
Break the eggs into a bowl and add them to the mixture, keep whisking as you pour them in to make sure the mixture doesn't cook the eggs. Then stir in the vanilla extract
Add the flour and whisk it in, then pour the batter into the lined traybake tin
Place the Jammie Dodger biscuits in rows on top of the batter, then add blobs of strawberry jam all around the biscuits, once you are happy with the amount of jam, swirl it around gently using a butter knife
Bake the blondies for 30 minutes, or until they are golden brown all over. Using a skewer inserted in the centre doesn’t give a clear indication that they are done because blondies are meant to be gooey and almost a little under cooked. Blondies are the white chocolate version of brownies and they are not like cake. They will also set more as they cool down, wait until they are cool to remove them from the tin and slice into pieces
Store in an airtight container in a cool place and eat within 3 days
If you would like to use a 8" or 9" square tin instead, reduce the recipe by one third. So you will need:
- 135g Butter
- 200g Golden caster sugar
- 100g White chocolate
- 2 Eggs
- 3/4 tsp Vanilla
- 150g Plain flour
- 4 tbsp Strawberry jam
- 9 Jammie Dodger biscuits
They will also need less time to bake, depending on your oven, I'd suggest 20-25 minutes.
