For Cherry Brownies:

  • 12 tablespoons (170 grams) unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/4 cup (266 grams) brown sugar packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (90 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (42 grams) cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (127 gram) chocolate chopped
  • 1 cup (113 grams) cherries chopped


For Cherry Brownies:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray an 8×8 pan with non-stick spray and then lay thick strips of parchment paper across the bottom of the pan in a cross shape. This will make it easier to lift the brownies out of the pan once cooled.
  • In a medium bowl combine the melted butter and brown sugar. When fully combined add the eggs and vanilla. Beat until fully combined and light in color.
  • In a small bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Whisk to combine and remove any lumps.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Overmixing will create tough brownies.
  • Fold the chocolate and cherries into the mixture and pour into the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake the brownies for 17-20 minutes, longer if you would like a firmer brownie
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool.
