Black Forest Brownies

For this month our ingredients in the Dessert Challenge by LADY BEHIND THE CURTAIN are Chocolate and Cherries !  

I have to admit, it took me literally weeks to come up with something, but I finally decided on a double chocolate brownie topped with lightly sweetened whipped cream and a delicious cherry filling. This is a moist and oh so chewy brownie ... hope you enjoy ! 

Black Forest Brownies {Dessert Challenge}

{8 - 12 servings}

1 3/4 cups Flour
1 t Bicarbonate of Soda
1 cup Caster Sugar
1/4 cup Cocoa
100g Butter, melted
1 Extra-Large Egg
1 cup Plain Yoghurt
1/2 cup Milk
1/2 t Vanilla Essence
3/4 cup Chocolate Chips, divided

1 jar {680g} Cherries in syrup, pitted  {I used Morello Cherries}
1 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Corn Flour
1 t Vanilla

1 1/2 cups Fresh Cream {double cream/whipping cream}
1/3 cup Icing Sugar

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) - Spray a 20 x 30cm oven dish with Spray 'N Cook.
2.) Sift the Flour, Bicarbonate of Soda, Caster Sugar and Cocoa together in a large bowl.
3.) Beat together the melted Butter, Egg, Yoghurt, Milk and Vanilla Essence - fold into the Flour mixture, but do not over-mix.
4.) Add 1/2 cup of the Chocolate Chips to the batter and stir through - pour batter into the prepared oven dish and sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup Chocolate Chips over.
5.) Bake 15 - 20 minutes - remove and cool completely before slicing.
6.) Meanwhile prepare the Cherry filling - drain the Cherries but reserve 1/2 cup of the syrup - place the Cherries, the reserved syrup, Sugar and Corn Flour in a small pot - bring to the boil - turn the heat to low and simmer about 10 minutes until thickened - remove from heat and stir in the Vanilla - cool completely.
7.) Beat together the Fresh Cream and the Icing Sugar until stiff points form - spoon into a piping bag.

Pipe Whipped Cream onto the border of each brownie - spoon some Cherry filling into the center.

Serve !
