Quick, I need chocolate!

Chocolate cherry and hazelnut brownies

The problem with going back to work is that I never seem to get a chance to eat at the right times during the day so I get home and I’m absolutely ravenous!  I can just about deal with feeding my little family by sticking to my menu planning but I’m not great at planning puddings.  We’re not a big pudding family, I prefer savoury at dinner time and my husband and Baby B are quite happy with a yogurt, but sometimes we just fancy a change.  These cooked in the time it took to do bedtime for Baby B.  There was actually far more than this when I made them, but they disappeared rather quickly as you can see in the photo!

You will need:

150g butter, 50g cocoa powder, 150g soft brown sugar, 2 eggs, 50g self-raising flour, 40g chopped hazelnuts and 40g chopped glace cherries.


Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease and line a 18cm square cake tin.  Cream together the butter and sugar.  Add the eggs one at a time.  Add the flour and cocoa powder and mix to form a smooth batter.  Add the hazelnuts and cherries and fold in gently.  Pour into the prepared cake tin.  Bake in the oven for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.  Best enjoyed warm…. well they don’t actually last much longer in our house!


Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Leave a comment, I read each and every one!
