Chocolate and Cherry Brownies

Chocolate and cherry are two of my absolute favourite flavours. In these delicious brownies they are a match made in heaven. Squidgy, fudgy and bursting with an explosion of cherry flavour. Use whatever cherries you can get hold of. If you can find some kirsch soaked ones, then all the better.

Makes 12


300g milk chocolate

50g dark chocolate

250g butter

3 eggs

250g light brown sugar

110g plain flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

150g cherries – glacé, fresh or kirsch soaked all the better

30g white chocolate (to drizzle over the mixture)


Pre heat oven to 170c / 150c fan

Line and grease a 28x19cm tin. I used one that is perfect for a tray bake.

Snap up the milk and dark chocolate and place in a large pan with the butter.

Heat gently to melt together. Stirring all the while. Set aside to cool a little.

In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and sugar until thick and frothy.

Now pour in the melted chocolate.

Gently fold in the flour, then half of the cherries.

Now pour into your lined baking tin.

Place your white chocolate in a small pan and melt, stirring all the while.

Dot the rest of the cherries on top and drizzle over the white chocolate.

Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for approximately 30 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool in the tin for 20 minutes or so.

Remove from tin, lifting out with the lining paper and cut into equal squares.
