Chocolate Cherry Brownies

I love Brownies of all different shapes and sizes and most importantly flavours.  I was looking for a way to use up some Glacé Cherries that I had in the cupboard and decided there was nothing better to put them in than a brownie.

To make these brownies you will need:

  • 250 g unsalted butter
  • 200 g good-quality dark chocolate broken up
  • 125 g Glacé cherries halved
  • 80 g cocoa powder, sifted (Not hot chocolate)
  • 65 g plain flour, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 360 g caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs

Preheat your oven to 180°C and line a 25cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper. Melt the butter and the chocolate in a bowl over some simmering water and mix until smooth. Add the cherries and stir together.

In a separate bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and sugar, then add this to the chocolate mixture. Stir together well. Beat the eggs and mix in until you have a silky consistency.

Pour your brownie mix into the baking tray, and place in the oven for around 25 minutes. The brownies should be slightly springy on the outside but still gooey in the middle.

These brownies will keep for up to 3 days if you still have any left!
