Tips

  • You can use fresh or frozen cherries.
  • Make sure you measure the dry ingredients correctly. Use a kitchen scale or measuring cup for this.
  • Use ingredients at room temperature. If the ingredients are cold, take all the ingredients out of the refrigerator about 2 hours before.
  • Be careful not to overmix the dough. Otherwise, the cake will dry out.
  • Make sure you use the correct pan size. Otherwise, the cake may be too thin or thick. This may cause it to overcook or overcook.
  • 8x8 or 9x9-inch cake molds are ideal for this recipe. You can also use a 9x13 baking tray.
  • Do not overbake the cake. Check whether the cake is cooked with the toothpick test. If the toothpick comes out clean, it is cooked.
  • You can use walnuts, pecans, or any nut variety for a crunchy texture.
  • You can use dark chocolate bars or chocolate chips.
  • Grease the baking dish or line the parchment paper. In this way, the cake does not stick or fall apart.
  • Allow the cake to cool before removing it from the mold.
  • Allow the brownie to cool completely before slicing. It is best to refrigerate overnight. If you try to cut it while it is hot, the cake will fall apart and collapse.
  • This dessert tastes the best when served with vanilla ice cream.

Where Do Brownies Come From?

Although the truth is not known exactly, there are two rumors about how brownie is made.

The first rumor is that brownie was the result of a mistake made like many other foods. As a result of forgetting to add baking powder to the mixture of a cook making a cake, a softer and more fluid cake appears. This favorite flavor continues to be made and eaten with flavor.

According to the second rumor, Brownie was a simple chocolate-free dessert consisting of a mixture of butter, eggs and sugar. For this reason, it was called "Blondie" because of its yellow appearance. After a while, it started to be made by adding chocolate and the name "Brownie" started to be used due to its brown appearance.

What Kind of Cherry Is Best for a Brownie?

You can use any type of cherry for this recipe. If using fresh cherries, remove the seeds and chop them. If using frozen or canned cherries, drain them before adding them to the batter.
