  • 350g/12oz dark chocolate (55-60% cocoa solids)

  • 250g/9oz unsalted butter

  • 3 large eggs

  • 250g/9oz dark soft brown sugar

  • 110g/4oz plain flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 150g/5oz fresh cherries, stoned and halved

  • 150g/5oz white chocolate, roughly chopped

  • 1-2 tbsp cocoa powder, to dust


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 170C/325F/Gas 3 and grease and line a 30x23cm/12x9in tray bake or roasting tin.

  • 2.

    Place the dark chocolate and butter into a saucepan and heat until melted, stirring so that it doesn’t get too hot then remove from the heat and cool while you whisk the eggs.

  • 3.

    Crack the eggs into a kitchen mixer or large bowl then add the sugar and whisk until thickened and paler in colour. Whisk in the cooled chocolate mixture then gently fold in the flour, baking powder and half the cherries.

  • 4.

    Spoon into the prepared tin then scatter the remaining cherries and white chocolate over the top.

  • 5.

    Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the surface is set. It will be cooked when a skewer into the middle comes out with just a little mixture sticking to it.

  • 6.

    Place onto a wire rack to cool in the tin totally before removing, dusting with cocoa powder and cutting into squares.
