I tend to always make chocolate desserts but today I wanted to change it up and make a super tasty dessert that does not contain any chocolate.

I really like Blondies so I decided to start with a blondie base and go from there.

I added some sour cherries to my basic Blondie recipe to create this new treat.

I started by combining some light brown sugar with melted butter, an egg, vanilla and salt.

I used a wooden spoon to mix the ingredients together until no lumps remained.

Then I added some flour and baking powder and continued mixing.

I stirred in the pitted sour cherries last and was careful not to stir too much as the cherries break apart fairly easily and I wanted to try to keep them intact.

I poured the mixture into a greased eight inch square pan and spread it out evenly.

Then I baked the blondies until a toothpick inserted in the center came out clean.

I allowed the blondies to cool before slicing and serving.

If you try to cut them too soon they will just fall apart and you will have a huge mess.

This recipe is just for a cake, not a blondie. The title is seriously deceiving. The cake is just okay, nothing special. My advice, don't waste the ingredients and find a better recipe.

This is absolutely the best blondie recipe I have ever made. Extremely moist and the sour cherries taste delicious in this blondie recipe.

We doubled this and baked in a 13X9 pan for 45 minutes, using sweetened Morello cherries. Could have baked a few minutes longer but still one of the best we've eaten. It's gonna be a family favorite. Thanks for the recipe!
