Slow Cooker Chocolate Cherry Blondies

Slow Cooker Chocolate Cherry Blondies

My slow cooker chocolate brownies (find them here for marshmallow brownies and here for peanut swirl brownies) were a great success so I decided to try making blondies instead. Read on for my recipe for slow cooker chocolate cherry blondies!

What are blondies?

If you haven’t heard of them, blondies can either be like a white chocolate version of chocolate brownies (as with my white chocolate Oreo blondies) or they can even be made without melted chocolate in the batter, as I have done here. They still have that lovely texture of fudgy brownies even when the mixture does not contain melted chocolate.

Of course I did add some chopped chocolate to the mixture! Today I had some lovely juicy fresh cherries so added a few of those too. Not too many though as they were so juicy I though they would make the batter too wet.

Slow cooker baking

Baking in a slow cooker is one of my favourite pastimes. Do other things while you bake and with excellent results! The slow cooker’s gentle heat means it won’t burn quickly and your bakes will be wonderfully soft. Check out all my slow cooker bakes in my recipe index.

  • 130 g light brown soft sugar
  • 110 g butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 0.5 tsp vanilla extract
  • 160 g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • A few sprinkles of salt
  • 75 g milk chocolate chopped
  • A handful of cherries pitted and quartered


  • Melt the butter in the microwave.
  • Pour it onto the sugar in a large bowl, mix, then leave to cool down.
  • Beat the egg with the vanilla extract and add to the butter mixture when cool. Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt (or use self-raising) and fold it into the mixture until just combined.
  • Stir in most of the chopped chocolate and cherries, leaving some to scatter on top.
  • Grease and line your slow cooker pot. I used a large cake case but you can also use baking paper.
  • Pour the mixture into the lined pot, then scatter the rest of the chocolate and cherries on top.
  • Cook on high for 1-2 hours or until a skewer comes out clean.
  • Remove the pot from the base and leave to cool slightly.
  • When cool enough to handle remove the cake case from the pot and place on a cooling rack to cool completely.
