Chocolate and cherries are a great pairing, and these dense, rich, fudgy brownies are swirled with cherry jam and sprinkled with chocolate chunks. The brownies are moist, soft, and very chocolaty, without being overly sweet. They're as fast and easy as a boxed mix, and the brownie batter is whisked together in one bowl, without using a mixer. Make sure not to overbake, and letting them cool properly gives the jam and chocolate chunks a chance to firm up and solidify. If you like rich, fudgy, deep, dark brownies, these are the ones to try.
Tip: for those trying to go light on sugar, I am too! I went a quarter cup less on the granulated sugar, and a little less on the cacao (as it can be bitter, especially with less sugar). I also used only about a quarter cup of the jam. This did not affect the taste or the baking at all, and I like it better with less sugar. Additionally, I find that mixing the thawed frozen fruit and the chips in the batter works well too.
Definitely watch for doneness prior to the recommended baking time if using coconut flour.
If following my own usage above, it makes for a much less dense, more cakey and not fudgy brownie, But still delicious! An added perk, is there will be a lot less calories!
