Cappuccino Choc Cherry Brownie

I love coffee, and as well as drinking it I also enjoy experimenting with coffee baked goods. Here is a recipe I developed recently as part of a Nescafe Dolce Gusto Christmas competition, where I had to create a baked treat featuring Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee pods.

Cappuccino Choc Cherry Brownie

1 Nescafe Skinny Cappuccino pod, made according to directions
50g butter
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups castor sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup glace red cherries, halved

Preheat oven to 150 degrees C. Spray an 8x8 baking tin with non-stick spray or line with grease proof paper.

Pour the cappuccino into a large bowl and add the butter, then melt in the microwave for one minute until the butter has melted. Mix in the cocoa, sugar, salt, eggs and vanilla essence until well combined..

Gently mix in the flour, baking powder, chocolate chips and cherries.

Pour into the prepared tin and bake for one hour.

The brownie should still be quite soft in the middle, but will have cracked slightly and pulled away from the edge of the tin.Cool completely in the tin, then cut and store in an airtight container.

Best served with a coffee on the side!
