About this recipe: There's nothing quite like a rich, dense and fudgy homemade brownie. These brownies are made with dark chocolate and cherries. For a really decadent dessert, serve warm with vanilla ice cream.


Makes: 24 small brownies

  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 100g salted butter
  • 200g caster sugar, sifted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 vanilla pod, seeds only
  • 125g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 200g tinned cherries, drained
  • 200g dark chocolate chips

Prep:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

  1. Preheat oven to 160 C / Gas 2 1/2. Grease and line a 18x28cm or similar sized baking tin with baking parchment.
  2. Melt the butter and 100g chocolate over low heat in a small saucepan, stirring to combine. Let cool.
  3. Beat the eggs with vanilla pod seeds and caster sugar. Gradually stir in the cooled chocolate mixture until well combined.
  4. Sieve together the flour, baking powder and cocoa. Fold into the chocolate mixture using a cutting motion. Try not to beat the mixture.
  5. Gently fold in the cherries and chocolate chips and pour into baking tin.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until just set. A knife inserted into the centre should come out sticky but not liquid.
  7. Let brownies cool in the tin before removing them. Cut into 4x6cm pieces and enjoy.
