Chocolate Cherry Brownies

5 comments Apr 29th, 2010 | By | Category: Desserts and Sweets, Recipes

I discovered this brownies recipe at the 101 cookbooks blog. The parents in law visiting us was a good opportunity to try out the recipe. Nothing better than a soft, warm browny with juicy cherries. Ideally you pair this dessert with vanilla ice cream.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Baking time: 60 minutes

difficulty level: easy


  • 300 gram of bitter chocolate in pieces
  • 100 gram of bitter chocolate chopped finely
  • 6 ts butter
  • 2 cups of brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 125 gram of Creme Fraiche
  • dried cherries or syrup cherries
  • 200 ml port wine
  • 50 gram flour
  • 40 gram cocoa powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • baking powder


In case you use dry cherries, put them into a bowl and soak them in the sherry over night.

If you use the syrup ones let the syrup drain well.

Lay out baking paper in the form that you use for baking. That makes it easier to remove the brownie later on.

Take a bowl and add the flour, the cocoa powder, a pinch of salt and the baking powder. Mix well, then put aside.

Put the 300 gram of broken chocolate into a small pot and heat it carefully on small heat. When it starts to melt ass the butter and the sugar. Once it is entirely melted remove ot form the heat and let it cool down a bit. Now use a mixer to blend the eggs one by one into the chocolate. Add the chocolate chips and the cherries, mix them carefully by hand and pour the dough into the prepared baking tray.

bake at 170 degrees Centigrade for 1 hour. Let it cool down and remove it form the tray.
