The name really just means that it’s a soft and chewy, very tasty brownie – with dried cherries in it. Adapted from Lauren Chattman’s ‘Cake Keeper Cakes’, we had this with some vanilla ice cream and our favorite chocolate sauce.
Chocolate Cherry Snacking Cake
3 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1 c. flour
1/4 t. EACH baking soda AND salt
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 egg AND 1 t. vanilla
1/2 c. butter, softened AND 1 c. sugar
1 c. dried cherries
Preheat the oven to 350 and grease an 8-inch square pan.
Melt the chocolate on low power in a small bowl in the microwave – this should take about 2 minutes, but be sure to check it every 20 seconds or so – then set it aside to cool slightly.
In a separate small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt, and then in a small glass jug, whisk together the buttermilk, egg and vanilla and set aside.
Put the butter and sugar in your electric mixer and beat on medium-high speed for about 3 minutes until it’s fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Then with the mixer on low, add 1/3 of the flour mixture, then 1/2 of the buttermilk mixture, repeating with both and ending with the last of the flour mixture – stop as necessary to scrape down the bowl.
Add the chocolate and blend until well combined and then stir in the cherries by hand. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
