Tuesday Treats – Cherry and Chocolate Brownies

Brownies

My oh my, these brownies are tasty. And easy to make.
I loved them, the Mr loved them, the Mini’s loved them and my fellow Cake Enthuasists – Mel and Lucy – enjoyed them!
Just need the Pops taste test on them now!

What you need:

175g/6oz Margarine
350g/12oz Caster Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
3 Eggs
125g/5oz Plain Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
50g/2oz Cocoa Powder
125g/5oz Chocolate Chips
125g/5oz Glace Cherries halved

What you need to do:

Line your baking tin with greasproof paper (I used a 9 x 12 in oblong tin)
Lay the paper and grease the top.
Turn on your oven to Gas 4/180oc.

Melt your margarine in a saucepan over a low heat.
Once melted, pour into your mixing bowl and add in the sugar and vanilla extract.

Break the eggs into a small bowl and beat together.
Add them to your mixing bowl, a little at a time. Making sure the mixture is combining well.

Sift the flour and cocoa into the bowl and then add in your baking powder. Mix well.

Add in your chocolate chips and halved cherries and stir well.

Pour the mixture into the tin and smooth the top.

Place in oven and bake for 35-40 minutes.

The brownies will be ready once they have risen and there will be a crust on the top, and soft in the middle.

Let the brownies cool down slightly in the tin for 5-10 minutes, then cut into squares and place on a cooling rack.

Enjoy!
