Dark Chocolate and Cherry Brownies

Easy Brownie RecipeWe’re back! Having just moved in to our new flat, and after an internet-less first week, we’re ready to start baking again. I’m still getting used to using a fan assisted oven for the first time too!

As the melt in the middle chocolate chip cookies were such a hit, we’ve decided to continue the chocolate theme with Dark Chocolate and Cherry Brownies. They’re super simple to make and taste great.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time:
20-25 minutes
Servings: 10 – 15 brownies

Equipment that you’ll need:
Medium Saucepan
20cm x 30cm baking tray
Wooden Spoon
Greaseproof paper

150g of plain or dark chocolate
250g unsalted butter
4 large eggs
160g plain flour
50g cocoa powder
200g fresh or tinned cherries
350g light brown sugar

  • Chocolate Brownie RecipePreheat your oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line your baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  • Place the Butter, Sugar and Chocolate in to your saucepan and gently heat, stirring with your wooden spoon. Remove from the heat when the mixture is melted and silky smooth.
  • Stir in your eggs one at a time, making sure they are fully combined with the chocolatey mixture. Sieve the flour and cocoa powder and gently fold it in.
  • Chop up half of the cherries in to a mush, making to remove any stones, and add it to the brownie mix – this will help your brownies be uber sticky and gooey. Add half of the remaining cherries (removing the stones again) to the mixture, either halved or whole.
  • Give the mixture a good mix before pouring in to the baking tray. Scatter over any remaining cherries.
  • Place in the middle of your oven for around 20 minutes, but give them a little longer if they’re still a bit too squidgy for your liking.

Leave the brownies in the tray to cool a little before slicing in to generous rectangles. Enjoy them cold or warm with vanilla ice cream!
