Rose brownies with walnuts and sour cherries


April 15, 2015

Indulgent, moist and fragranced with rose, takes you away to the middle east.


Butter a 13x9 inch brownie tray and line with baking paper

Preheat the oven to 180c / fan 160

Melt the butter and chocolate together and set aside to cool a little

In a large bowl whisk the eggs, salt, both sugars, vanilla and rose water until combined and thick and fluffy

Whisk in the chocolate

Fold in the flour until just combined

Fold in the walnuts and sour cherries

Pour the batter into your tin and bake for 35-40 minutes

It will become shiny and crack on top, remove and let it cool

Meanwhile make your topping by putting all the ingredients in a bowl over some simmering water and stir until it’s all melted and combined to a delicious shiny chocolaty sauce

Now at this stage you can either cut up the cake once it’s cooled and top each individual slice or just spread the topping all over the cake whilst it’s in the tin and then allow it to set a little before removing and slicing it up
