gale - what on earth is a "brownie pan" ? 
You're making my feet itch .... I feel like I should jump in my little truck and head out to buy some pans I don't have.
I make my brownies in a plain, old 9 x 13 pan.

Those cherries in a brownie sure sound good ...... and right now I have the cherries, the brownie stuff  - and a pan!!

 The new brownie pan is the one they show on TV,It kinda looks like an ice cube tray the top is divided and each brownie bakes individually.

aaaahhhhhh.... My 'kinda brownie
I bake brownies to give away.... I love them but can't eat all (except over-nutted  ;- ) crumbled and mounded over ice cream)  
so  I slice off the edges to keep FOR ME and give the rest away.

I got one of those pans and they work great. We'll see if it holds up like mom's pans I use now.

The brownie pan looks great.  But the problem is I have far far to many pans.  I just can not justify getting a new pan.  I figure sooner or later one will show up at a garage sale of the local Goodwill and I will get it then. 
The flavor combination of Chocolate and Cherries is heavenly.  I am not one for the over frosting of a brownie.  I like a plain brownie or if necessary to have a frosting I like a ganache on it.
Have you ever heard of a "Crawlin' Cake"?  The cherry combination would be great in a crawlin cake.
Crawlin Cake is easy but potentially very messy to make.
1 Cake mix, any flavor..Here you would use a chocolate.
1 Tub of frosting, again I would use chocolate for this one or Cherry frosting.
1/4 Cup vegetable oil
1 Cup water or milk
3 large eggs
This MUST be mixed by hand!!  If you use a mixer it will crawl out of the pan, hence the name.
Pre heat oven to 350.  Grease and flour a 12 Cup Bundt pan
In a large bowl, combine cake mix, oil, water and eggs together, mix until ingredients are well distributed. Scrape the bowl and beat for about 2 minutes.  Add the container of frosting and continue to stir for another 2 minutes.
Pour batter into pan and bake until cake tests done, tooth pick inserted into center will come out clean.  About 55 to 60 minutes.
Let cake cool in pan.  Invert onto plate and allow to cool completely before cutting.

I have tried this cake 2 or 3 times and have had mixed results.  First time I tried it I followed directions and used mixer. And I ended up with cake all over the oven.  It lived up to the name Crawlin cake alright!!  I did some research and found out that the use of a mixer is not recommended.  The other cake I did sunk in the center.  Very dense cake, moist but not real pretty to look at.  Flavor was good but I have had better.
If anyone has tried a cake like this I would like your impression and how did yours turn out.

Wow did I get off track from the cherry brownies.

Hi Nikki and John,first John thanks for the heads up on the brownie pan .Nikki,I have the same problem with too many pans,but this is a gift from my son and daughter in law so I have to keep it.LOL I too was a thrift store Diva but I can't go anywhere by myself and no one will go with me so those days are over,they said I have too much junk.Cry I miss that,some of the things that I found there were unbelievable.I do have an old recipe that my mom had you made the frosting first and then part of the frosting became the cake batter,it is a chocolate mint cake.It's an old recipe that was a grand prise winner,I'll keep looking and post asap.Nancy don't buy the pan you'll miss out on your edges if you do.LOL

Gale, did you ever find the cake recipe?  The Old "Tunnel of Fudge cake" had a box of frosting in it but the frosting is no longer made.  I have some recipes that are close to it but not exactly the same.

The brownie pan that bakes the brownies in little squares I think you actually end up with pieces that are all sides.  The divider is metal and conducts heat so each brownie has an edge to it.  I would think the problem would be that since the divider conducts heat you may run into the problem of the brownie over cooking.  Almost nothing worse than an over baked brownie.

Hi Nikki,My daughter in law didn't give me the pan for Christmas after all,her mother came home from CA. so I'm guessing she wanted it,all is well and good because I really don'rt have much room in the kitchen you name it and I probably have it LOL.I did find the cake recipe it is called Starlight double delight.It was a Grand prize winner in 1951.It is a Pillsbury recipe.I feel funny posting it on this site so if you want the recipe it is on the Pillsbury site.It is a chocolate mint cake and it is wonderful.You make the frosting first because some of it goes into to the cake batter.Check it out.

Gale, I found the recipe and I am wondering if you have ever made this as a Bundt cake rather than a layer cake?
The frosting recipe sounds spectacular by itself. Makes a huge amount!

Sounds like a great recipe Gale, thanks for posting it.  I can't always find the candied cherries but I'll bet you could also use maraschino cherries if they're well drained.  Think I would add some of the cherry juice in place of some of the water for the batter too.  Nothing better than chocolate and cherries!
Now I'm getting hungry and I just finished dinner lol.

Hi Nikki,I've only made this a couple of times my mom used to make this quit often because we liked it.My husband God love him is not for trying anything new.My boys love chocolate anything.I will have to try this as a bundt cake that is a very good idea as I love the ease of it and I'm sure that it would be great that way to make this.I have another cake that my sister in law made and it is wonderful, it's a bundt cake,pistachio with a whipped cream frosting.I have a ton of cook books and recipes stashed in them so I will have to find it,I also have two old picnic and two pie baskets filled with recipes.I save everything that looks good maybe will never try but they are there when I get the urge to make something new.I will find that recipe and post it soon and maybe some others also.

Hi Ann,you are welcome. I too like easy baking when I'm busy cooking.When I make more time consuming baking recipes thats all I want to do for the day.I usually do those when we go out for dinner then we come home and have what ever I've made and some nice french press coffee to go with it.My guys did like this recipe very much.

I have a recipe for mint brownies --- It's a big batch of batter that pour 1/2 of into pan and bake a few minutes (or do you just add mints before baking?  I cn't remember and can't go look for recipe because Peaches is across my arm)  You cover the entire surfacw with unwrapped mini chocolate covered mints.  Cover those with the rest of the brownie batter.   Make a really, really good brownie.
