Try this...Chocolate and cherry cheesecake brownies

HAVE you been wondering what to get your mum this year for Mother’s Day (Sunday, April 3)? Why not try baking something delicious from Sainsbury’s new “Baking Recipe Collection” cook book?

It is full of scrumptious recipes for cakes, muffins, cupcakes, puddings, breads and more! She would even love the book itself as it has beautiful pictures for every recipe and only costs £5.

“Here is one of my favourites from the book, and as I’m a mum too, I would really enjoy one (or two) of these delicious chocolate and cherry cheese cake brownies with a relaxing cup of coffee on mothers day,” says Arlene Thompson, Regional Community Food and Health Manager, Sainsbury’s Try Team, said.
