soft brown sugar
pinch of salt
(remove the pip)
Line and lightly grease a 20 x 30cm cake tin.
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/160 fan/350ºF.
Chop the cherries in to quarters and the blackberries in half. Dry them off with kitchen paper.
Melt the chocolate in a microwave or over hot water. Once melted set aside to cool.
By hand or in a mixer cream together the butter, sugars and vanilla until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs and the extra yolk (the extra yolk really helps get a crisp top to the brownie). Mix in for a few minutes until fully combined.
Add the cooled melted chocolate and mix
Sieve in the flour, a pinch of salt, baking powder and the cocoa powder and mix until combined.
Remove from the mixer and add the fruit and gently stir in by hand.
Pour the mix into the tin and bake for 40-50 minutes. Add an extra 10 if you want it to have a firm set.
Remove from the tin and allow to cool on a wire wrack for at least a few seconds before cutting in and enjoying.
Enjoy when it's still warm with ice cream or cream.
