PB & J Blondies - SKIPPY Peanut Butter and Jam Blondies #AD

On Saturday (2nd April 2022) it is officially National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day. Peanut butter and jelly (or jam) has been one of my favourite sandwich fillings for a very long time. I don't remember when or where I first enjoyed it, but it's a combination that I love. 

Jelly is generally made from fruit juices, whilst jam is made from real fruit, but here in the UK jelly is a completely different food, and I would not recommend using it in a pb & j sandwich!

For National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day 2022 I've decided to make some PB & J Blondies. if you're not familiar with blondies, they are similar, in the way that they're made, to brownies. They're relatively simple to make and, just like brownies, the key is to not over bake them, so they keep a soft and chewy texture.

I've used my go to blondie recipe, which can be adapted with different flavours and ingredients, and swirled creamy SKIPPY Peanut Butter and Bonne Maman jam through the batter, and scattered a few salted peanuts on the top.

SKIPPY® Peanut Butter: Extra Smooth and Extra Crunchy varieties are currently available in major supermarkets including Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Costco, Ocado and the International section of Tesco.

Take a look at my TikTok to see how I made these delicious blondies, and scroll down to see the full recipe.

SKIPPY Peanut Butter & Jam [Jelly] Blondies

250g unsalted butter
350g caster Sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
300g plain flour
2 eggs
100g SKIPPY Extra Smooth Creamy Peanut Butter
75g Strawberry Jam / Conserve / Jelly
30g salted peanuts

  • Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C / gas mark 3
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter and bring it briefly to the boil and stir in the sugar
  • Add the vanilla
  • Remove from the heat
  • Mix the flour & baking powder together
  • Add the flour & baking powder to the saucepan, and mix well
  • Beat the eggs
  • Add the beaten eggs to the saucepan, and beat until smooth
  • Pour into a baking tray lined with non stick baking paper, and smooth out
  • Warm the SKIPPY Peanut Butter in the microwave for a few seconds to soften
  • Drizzle the SKIPPY Peanut Butter over the batter, and swirl
  • Spoon jam onto the batter, and swirl
  • Sprinkle with salted peanuts
  • Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, but check after 25 minutes. The tops of the blondies should be golden brown but the centre should still be soft.
  • Be careful not to overcook - blondies need to retain their fudginess - it will firm up as it cools down
  • Cool in the tray and cut into squares when cold

SPAM®️ Quiche Lorraine {& a GIVEAWAY} #AD

This coming week is an important event in the foodie calendar as it's the UK's official SPAM®️ Appreciation Week 2021 (8th - 14th March). I know that many readers of this blog love having the chance of winning a SPAM®️ Sizzle Pack, and this year I also have a special anniversary t-shirt to give away along with the pack. (scroll down to find out how you can win)

SPAM®️ Chopped Pork and Ham are celebrating 80 years in the UK this year, and to celebrate this very important birthday, along with the giveaway, I have created a very important dish. During the 70's and 80's, no birthday party or special occasion was complete without a quiche of some description on the buffet table, and with that in mind I've given the classic Quiche Lorraine a Sizzle Pork And Mmm twist, and replaced the bacon with SPAM®️ Chopped Pork and Ham - pure genius I hear you say!

SPAM Quiche Lorraine

A quiche is pretty straightforward to make, and you can add just about anything you like to the filling. The classic Quiche Lorraine is generally just bacon, cheese, eggs and cream. I usually make my own pastry, but if you're not a confident pastry maker, or don't have much time, then a ready made pastry crust can be a life saver, and is available in just about every supermarket - make sure you buy the savoury version and not the sweet one though!

Yon't need to pre-cook the SPAM®️ Chopped Pork and Ham, especially if you're short on time, but I think it's nicer when the edges have a little crispiness to them, but it's personal preference really, and who doesn't love listening to the sizzle in the pan!

SPAM®️ Quiche Lorraine

1 tbsp oil
1 onion, finely chopped
200g can of SPAM®️ Chopped Pork and Ham
1 pastry case
100g Gruyere cheese, grated
300ml double cream
3 eggs
  • Preheat the oven to 170°c
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the onions
  • Fry until softened, and set aside
  • Dice the SPAM®️ Chopped Pork and Ham to approx 0.5cm and add to the pan
  • Fry until browned on all sides
  • Add the onions and all but one large spoonful of SPAM®️ Chopped Pork and Ham to the base of the pastry case
  • Sprinkle the grated Gruyere cheese over the top
  • Whisk the cream and eggs together with a fork & pour into the pastry case - if you have too much mixture you can make mini crustless quiches in a muffin tin
  • Sprinkle the remaining diced SPAM®️ Chopped Pork and Ham onto the top
  • Bake in the preheated oven for approx 25 minutes, until golden brown
  • Serve warm or cold, with salad and new potatoes, or baked beans & chips - whatever floats your boat!
