Double Chocolate & Raspberry Brownies recipe

Without further ado, here is our ultimate brownie recipe – perfect for Easter. This recipe was created by Annabel Bower and it makes 20-25 brownies.

Ingredients

  • 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)

Method

  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.
