Double chocolate and raspberry brownies recipe

These tasty brownies are the perfect treat for a big family gathering, a date night, fun with friends, or a picnic in the park. This recipe makes 20-25 brownies.


  • 250g of 70% dark chocolate (chopped)
  • 250g of unsalted butter (chopped into 1cm cubes)
  • 1 cup of soft brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of castor sugar
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 1/3 cup of sifted cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup of self-raising flour
  • 125g of frozen raspberries
  • 100g of white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate
  • Crème fraîche, fresh berries, and dried edible flowers to serve with brownies
  • One ceramic baking tray (approximately 20cm by 30cm)


  1. Preheat the oven to 160℃.
  2. Line a ceramic 20x30cm dish with baking paper.
  3. Melt the butter and dark chocolate together in the microwave using one-minute intervals, stirring between each. Or, melt butter and chocolate over a Bain Marie, stirring constantly until fully melted.
  4. Add sugars and whisk thoroughly to combine. Next, add the eggs one at a time, whisking each in completely before adding the next.
  5. Add sifted cocoa and flour to the bowl. Fold through the chocolate, butter, and egg mixture with a spatula.
  6. Stir the white chocolate chips into the brownie mixture and pour it into the ceramic dish. Sprinkle frozen raspberries evenly over the top of the brownie batter and bake for 35-45 minutes.
  7. Cool completely before slicing. For a firmer and fudgier brownie, pop it in your fridge before cutting.
  8. Serve with big dollops of crème fraîche and fresh raspberries. Sprinkle with dried edible flowers.

Meet Annabel Bower

Annabel Bower is a mother, food stylist, chef, and author. You may recognise her work – she’s one of the powerhouse creatives behind many of The Hamper Emporium’s photoshoots.

Passion is her driving force

Annabel’s love of food led her to train at Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland when she was 21. This training gave her a paddock-to-plate philosophy and a dedication to supporting local producers. Back home in Australia, she ran a busy catering company for many years before moving her focus to recipe writing and food styling.

At the heart of everything that inspires Annabel is family. She is the proud mother of 5, aged 3 to 13. Her 4th child Miles was stillborn, and after experiencing the utter heartache such a loss brings, she established the Miles Apart Foundation to raise awareness of the impact of baby loss and wrote the book 'Miles Apart' to support others navigating the grief of losing a baby.

She makes culinary magic with her business 'Food By Annabel'

There’s something about food that brings people together, which is what Annabel loves most about it. From an early age, she was baking brownies for friends and offering to help cook at her parent’s dinner parties; little did she know that this 'hobby' would lead to a 20+ year career in food.

A genuine passion for local produce and a love of exploring new recipes and flavours have stayed with Annabel throughout her career as a caterer and food stylist. The skills and knowledge she amassed from years in the catering kitchen are drawn upon daily when writing recipes for clients and styling delicious scenes for editorial and marketing content.

So many moments in life, big or small, are centred around food, preparing it, sharing it, and taking time to enjoy it with those dear to us. Annabel is happiest when cooking for others, whether it’s a simple dinner with family, an elaborate feast, or a photoshoot brief, equal energy and love are poured into the dishes and how they're presented.

In her own words, "I feel incredibly lucky to have turned my passion for food into a career which has led me to meet and work with so many incredible people; chefs, producers, and writers from all over Australia. Food for me is a way of showing love and making people feel special; I love nothing more than writing recipes for others to recreate and helping style gorgeous scenes full of delicious Australian goodies."
