4. Melt the ingredients until a homogeneous chocolate mass is obtained. Some housewives like to do this in the microwave, for me it’s more convenient to melt chocolate on the stove, it’s not necessary to do it in a water bath, you can just on the stove, just add a couple of tablespoons of milk or water to the bowl, so that the chocolate does not stick to the bottom of the container and start burning. Constantly stirring with a spoon, we get a homogeneous chocolate paste. We remove the dishes from the fire.

9. Pour in the sifted flour. I recommend not to put all the measured amount of flour at once, but to add it in parts, mixing well each one in order to focus on the consistency of the dough. Since flour varies in quality and density, and this, in turn, affects the density of the dough. The classic brownie recipe does not contain baking powder, because this is not a simple biscuit, but a wet chocolate cake, we don’t need to get special splendor of baking.

10. It is advisable to bake the cake on parchment in the form of a square or rectangular, not very large, so that it does not turn out to be too low. Bake at 180 degrees for about 40 minutes. You can check the readiness of the cake with a toothpick. At the exit, it should be dry. But we have an unusual cake, when ready, the cherry and chocolate brownie should be dry on the outside and moist and tender on the inside. Therefore, it is important not to overdo it in the oven.
