  • 8" square baking tray
  • Parchment paper
  • large mixing bowl


  • 2 eggs
  • cup flavorless oil such as sunflower oil or canola oil
  • 2 tablespoon amarena cherry syrup or kirsch liqueur
  • cup all purpose flour or plain flour
  • cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup powdered sugar or icing sugar
  • ½ cup superfine granulated sugar or caster sugar
  • 5 oz fresh cherries stems removed, cut in half and pits removed
  • 2 oz dark chocolate chips or chopped solid chocolate


  • Begin by preheating your oven to 325°F (165/145C Fan) and lining a square baking dish with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients - the eggs, oil and cherry syrup (or liqueur).
  • In a separate mixing bowl, sift together the flour, powdered sugar, superfine granulated sugar and cocoa powder.
  • Add the sugar mixture to the wet ingredients and stir using a spatula until it has just combined into a thick brownie batter.
  • Reserve about a third of the cherry halves and a third of the chocolate chips. Add the rest of these to the batter and fold through.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and carefully spread into an even layer.
  • Place the reserved cherries on top of the batter and sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out mostly clean.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely (at least 2 hours) before slicing.
