Chocolate Cherry Brownies

Lisa Foote


This recipe makes an 9 inch pan of cake-like brownies so it's just right for a special dessert or for a special occasion! You can also use raspberry or strawberry jam in these to have a few options. I use Smuckers Sugar Free Preserves, regardless of the flavor you add, they are wonderful! The recipe originally came from an old Cooking Light magazine I had, I made a few changes so I hope you enjoy these!

How to Make Chocolate Cherry Brownies


  1. Preheat oven to 350° Line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper; coat with cooking spray.

    Note: Lining the pan with parchment paper helps prevent the moist brownies from sticking.
  2. Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, unsweetened cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; stir with a whisk.
  3. Combine cherry preserves, 1/3 cup water, and butter in a small saucepan; bring just to a boil. Remove from heat and cool 10 minutes.
  4. Add preserves mixture to flour mixture; stir well. Add egg and egg white; stir until smooth. Stir in semisweet chocolate chips. Scrape batter into prepared pan.
  5. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Cool in pan on wire rack.

    Garnish with powdered sugar, if desired.
