Chocolate Cherry Brownies

There are few desserts that I enjoy more than brownies.  When I baked through Dorie Greenspan's Baking from My Home to Yours,  I was delighted to find several brownie recipes, each different from the other and each wonderful in its own way.  So when her new book, Baking Chez Moi arrived last fall, one of the first recipes I baked was the only new brownie recipe:  Chocolate Cherry Brownies.

I've learned so much about baking from Dorie and from this recipe I learned that it doesn't take much wine to really ramp up the flavor of dried fruit!  The cherries were delicious in these brownies!

The Tuesdays with Dorie bakers baked these brownies this week.  I have to admit that I did not, but only because I was on an airplane traveling home to Rochester, NY from the west coast.   So the only picture I can provide this time is the page in the book with my notes from November:

                            Very dense, very tasty.

If you want to see what the other Tuesday with Dorie bakers have to say about these brownies, and see their wonderful pictures, go here.


  1. These are a definite keeper! I definitely think I would make the same notation!

  2. I love that you date your comments! The cookbook becomes almost like a journal then. And yes -- definitely dense and tasty!

  3. you are so smart--comments with dates! i need to get better at making notes in my books.

  4. Glad you had already pre-made these and your observations are spot on. Very dense but also quite enjoyable.
