Q: The Kitchn’s On the Fence Brownies is my go-to brownie recipe. I’d like to adapt it for an 8″x8″ pan, and add a layer of fresh cherries. I’m guessing I’ll need to adjust the liquids in the recipe because of the cherry juice. I’ve never done substitutions so any advice is greatly appreciated!

Editor: I’d try roasting the cherries before layering them into the brownies. That would take care of a good amount of the cherry juices and also concentrate the cherry flavor. Yum!

Readers, what suggestions do you have for adapting this brownie recipe?
