  • Electric beater
  • Parchment Paper
  • 8×8 inch baking pan


  • 7 ounces Chopped dark chocolate
  • cup unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 3 eggs (at room temperature)
  • 1 ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup Dutch processed cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups cherries (pitted and cut into halves. Set aside a few cherries to add to the top of the brownies before baking.)


  • Preheat the oven to 350˚ F. Grease a square 8×8-inch baking pan with butter and line it with two pieces of parchment paper going in opposite direction. Set it aside.
  • In a small bowl combine the chopped chocolate and butter and melt in a microwave using 30-second intervals to prevent the chocolate from burning.
  • In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-6 minutes. Add in the vanilla extract and mix well.
  • Add the melted chocolate-butter mixture to the egg mixture and beat until combined.
  • In a separate bowl mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  • Combine both the dry and wet ingredients using a spatula until evenly incorporated.
  • Add the cherries and fold them into the brownie batter until just combined. Be careful not to over mix the batter.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and arrange some cherries on top. Bake the brownies for 35-40 minutes until the top looks shiny and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let the brownies cool for an hour. Cut them into equal squares. Serve with ice cream and enjoy!
