    Makes: 12


    275g plain flour
    50g cocoa powder
    2 tsp baking powder
    ½ tsp fine salt
    200g golden caster sugar
    100g dark chocolate, roughly chopped

    1.  Preheat the oven to 190°C, gas mark 5. Line the holes of a 12-hole muffin tin with muffin cases. Mix the flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl. Stir through all but a small handful of the chopped chocolate.

Pour in the butter and stir until just combined, then fold through all but a handful of the halved cherries. Divide the mixture evenly between the muffin cases and top with the reserved chocolate and cherries. Bake for 25 minutes until risen and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

    3. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then remove and cool completely on a wire rack. Serve immediately or store for up to 3 days in an airtight container.

    Cook’s tip A cherry pitter will make light work of removing the stones from the cherries, but if you don’t have one use a small knife to cut each cherry in half and remove the stones by hand.
