Cherries with choco chips-ohhh so yummmm, so delicious!! These brownies came out just the way I like-fudgy,dense, with a moist, intensely chocolatey interior. 

1 cup All Purpose flour(Maida)

¼ cup Cocoa Powder

1 teaspoon Baking soda

½ teaspoon Instant Coffee Powder

Pinch of Salt

1 cup Powdered Sugar (reduce a bit if you want it less sweet)

1 cup Milk

1 teaspoon Vinegar

1/3rd cup Oil( I've used Canola Oil)

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract

1 cup pitted cherries

½ cup choco chips

Some almond slivers (2-3 tablespoon)


Start by preheating the oven at 180*C.

Next prepare a baking pan by greasing and lining it with the parchment paper.

I have used a round tray of about 8 inch diameter.

Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, Coffe powder and Salt and in a bowl.

Whisk well and set aside. Add sugar powder to it. 

In a cup add milk and vinegar. Stir it well and let it curdle.

Add Oil and Vanilla extract to it.

Add the flour mixture to the liquid mixture and mix till just combined. 

Whisk until combined well. 

Do not overmix. The batter will be on the thicker side. 

Fold in the chocolate chips and pitted cherries.

Reserve some cherries to be put on the top.

Pour the prepared brownie batter into the prepared baking pan.

Put the reserved cherries and sprinkle the almond slivers over the batter.

Bake it at 180*C for 25-30 minutes.

Check if the brownies are cooked by inserting a fork or toothpick in the center after 25 minutes. 

If the toothpick comes out clean its done or else keep the pan for a further 5-10 minutes.

Once done, cool the brownies in the pan completely before inverting them onto a metal rack. 

Cut into slices and serve.
