brownie delight

Several years ago my sister, Debbie and I purchased these special baking pans called tiara pans.  Duncan Hines cake mixes were selling them as a set…cake mix/pan.  The pan has a fluted edge with a hollow center for fillings.  My sister and I created our own recipe out of a favorite brownie recipe we had always used and cherry pie filling as the topping.  It makes a pretty dessert!  I had not made one of these Cherry Brownies (that’s what we have always called this dessert.) for a very long time.  I asked my daughter recently what cake she wanted for her birthday…She ordered the Cherry Brownie. 

Cherry Brownie
2 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1 cup melted butter
4 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts (optional)…* I don’t include.

Mix all of the above together.  Pour into a tiara pan, which has been greased and floured.  Bake at 375 degrees F. for 25 minutes. 

When cool, invert pan onto a serving plate.  Pour a can of cherry pie filling in the center. 

Slice, serve and enjoy. 


  1. This was made for my birthday… It was awesome – as usual!!! I sure ate it up, and my little nephew loved it as well. He repeated over and over, "Can I have more after I'm done with this one." 🙂
