Chocolate cherry brownies

    35 min

    These brownies are a little healthier, as butter has been replaced with vegetable oil. Chocolate and cherry are a perfect combination. Makes approximately 9 large brownies or 12 regular.

    Makes: 12 brownies

    • 200g white granulated sugar
    • 125ml vegetable oil
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 2 medium sized eggs
    • 60g plain flour
    • 5 tablespoons cocoa powder

    • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 60g chopped glace cherries

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a 23cm square baking dish or tin.
    2. In a bowl combine the sugar, vegetable oil and vanilla. Mix well with an electric mixer. Add the eggs and beat.
    3. In a separate bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder. Gradually add this mixture to the egg mixture, folding in completely as you go. Continue to fold in until all the cocoa mixture has been incorporated. Stir in the chopped cherries.
    4. Pour the mixture in the greased baking dish and gently shake to ensure mixture has evenly spread.
    5. Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins. The brownie mix should start to come away from the sides of the dish once baked.
    6. Place on a wire cooling rack until cooled down. Cut into squares and serve.


    For a more traditional brownie you can replace the vegetable oil with melted butter. Chopped walnuts are also a nice alternative to the cherries.

    I made these but using cherries in syrup from a jar. Recipe was great but mine were a little too gooey, this may have been because of the cherries but next time I'd give them about ten minutes longer. Very tasty though!  -  19 Apr 2015
