Cherry and Amaretto brownies
Customer recipe by Emily Knight

I've spent about 4 years perfecting this recipe, using different quantities of the ingredients! :)

Grease and line a tin, and preheat your oven to 180 degrees.

Melt together the butter and both types of sugar on the hob.

Remove from the heat, and sift in the cocoa powder and flour. Mix well.

Add the eggs, mix well.

Stir in the glace cherries, Amaretto, and almonds, if using.

Pour into the tin, and bake for 35-40 minutes. Leave to cool before turning out of the tin and cutting into squares.

You can use 450g caster sugar instead of the caster/light soft brown mix, but I find that using a mix of the two gives a gooier consistency.
