Cherry Chocolate Slice

An easy and simple slice to make when cherries are in season. These slices are just so very nice and a little different because the recipe uses fresh cherries and not glace. Warning they are a little on the rich side, but still very yummy!


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Melt chocolate and butter by placing both in a heatproof bowl and standing over a pan of boiling water. Stir until melted and well combined. (I actually use the microwave on low for this step.)
  3. Beat flour sugar and eggs until white and doubled in bulk, this will take about 5 minutes.
  4. Add melted chocolate and beat together well.
  5. Grease a lamington tin and scatter cherries over base of tin.
  6. Pour chocolate mixture over the top and bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when tested.
  7. Remove from oven cool and cut into slices.

I am so sorry!!!! I couldn't find cherries - fresh or frozen - for the longest time! I can't even find the thread to post this is finally completed (Make My Recipe). I've never been so embarrassed. This is sooooooo wonderful! I really just don't GET 'slice'. KiwiDutch made a 'slice' for me but it was candy. This is like a brownie. An exceptional brownie. According to google, a slice pan is 9"x13". Once I found cherries - pitting them was the biggest amount of work. The butter & chocolate melted while I did that & everything came together quickly & easily. OMG, O.M.G. HOW DELICIOUS!!! It's not too rich - it's just right. :) THANK YOU for a wonderful dessert!!! xoxo Bethie
