Recipe: Chocolate Cherry Brownies with Ruby Port
By Christian Eedes, 24 July 2018
Makes for a classic flavour combination.
Ingredients – makes 12 large squares:
2 cups (400g) caster sugar
3 large free range eggs
1½ cups (200g) of plain flour
½ cup (50g) cocoa
1 tsp (5ml) vanilla paste (or vanilla extract)
100g milk chocolate, roughly chopped
1/3 cup (50g) pecan nuts, roughly chopped
1 cup (18) fresh cherries, halved and stoned
Line and grease a baking tin 270mm x 175mm x 30mm.
Melt the butter and add the sugar. Add eggs, one and a time, mixing thoroughly. Add the flour, cocoa, vanilla, chocolate, cherries and pecan nuts and mix well.
Pour the mixture into the tin and bake at 160⁰ C for 45 minutes.
Leave to cool, remove from the tin and cut into squares.
Serve with a Cape Ruby which will complement both the chocolate and the cherry in the brownies.
