Equipment

  • 8" square pan

Ingredients

Brownies

  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk room temperature
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 ½ ounces unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder dutch process cocoa
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate chopped
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup chocolate chips

Cherries

  • 1 ½ cups frozen cherries
  • ¼ cup water

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, mix together the cherries and water. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.Strain the cherries through a fine mesh sieve, then pour into a bowl and let them come to room temperature.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C. Grease an 8×8 pan and line it with aluminium foil.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and salt
  • In a large bowl, place your eggs, egg yolk, sugar, oil and vanilla extract. Mix together using a hand held mixer for about 6-8 minutes until well mixed. This is what will give you a thin crust on top!
  • Place a small saucepan with about an inch of water over medium/low heat until it begins to simmer. Place a heat proof bowl over it and melt your butter and chocolate together until smooth. Take off the heat and set aside.
  • Add the cocoa powder to the chocolate and whisk until smooth
  • Pour the sugar mixture into the chocolate mixture and whisk until smooth
  • Add the flour mixture and fold, making sure there are no air pockets
  • Fold in your chocolate chips and cherries, though keep a handful to the side of both the cherries and chips to sprinkle on top
  • Pour the brownie batter into the prepared tin. Sprinkle your reserved cherries and chocolate chips on top. Bake for 35-40 minutes. The top should have crackled, and a toothpick inserted will have a few crumbs on it.

Notes

My recipes have been developed and tested in metric grams. I highly recommend using a weighing scale and measuring out your ingredients the metric way. I have provided a conversion to US cups but please note that I haven’t tested the recipe with this method. Just click on ‘US Customary’ above the ingredients to see the cup measurements. 
I make sure that all of my ingredients are at room temperature before I start the recipe, so pull out all of the ingredients before you start baking.
Butter: I use European style butter in this recipe
Kosher Salt: if you don't have kosher salt, halve the amount of salt in the ingredient list (1 teaspoon kosher salt = ½ teaspoon fine salt)
Vegetable Oil: Use an unflavoured oil like rapeseed or canola oil if you don’t have vegetable oil. 
Storage: Keep them in an airtight container, if you keep them at room temperature they'll last about 3 days but in the fridge they'll last about 5 days.
