Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Butter and line the base and sides of a 22cm square cake tin: cut 2 strips of baking parchment the width of the tin and longer than the base and sides, and fit into the tin each way and up the sides. This will make lifting it out easier.
  2. Mix together the flour, sugar and oats in a bowl. Add the egg, melted butter and cherries, and mix well. Tip into the tin and spread evenly with a fork.
  3. Bake for 20-25 mins until golden brown. Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then carefully lift out using the paper and place on a board. Mark, but don’t cut, 4 lines each way to make 16 squares. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 1 min, then drizzle over the squares. When the chocolate has set, cut the squares down the marked lines.

Made twice already, quick and easy for my 10 yr old to make by herself. Needed more cherries than recipe stated though.

Made this twice already really, really quick and easy. Good for the childrens lunch boxes and sold out at a cake sale. Great recipe for my 10 yr old daughter to make by herself. Added more cherries to second batch, as complaints from my family that some slices were cherry-less!
