Chocolate and Raspberry Brownies

This American classic is one of the easiest sweet treats to make.

The recipe could be written in one sentence: melt butter and chocolate, whisk eggs and sugar, combine, fold in flour and bake.

The most delicious brownies I’ve ever had were made by Scottish food writer Sue Lawrence; they contained fresh raspberries and inspired this recipe.

Frozen raspberries won’t work, they’re too moist, so if fresh aren’t available just leave them out, or add some nuts instead – hazelnuts, walnuts and macadamias all work well.

Makes: 15 pieces


200g salted butter     

200g dark chocolate  

4 eggs 

2/3 cup light brown sugar        

125g raspberries        

2/3 cup plain flour, sifted


Preheat oven to 180°C.

Grease and line a 20cm x 30cm baking pan.

Place butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. When half melted, add chocolate, remove from heat and stir until just smooth. Set aside to cool.

Meanwhile, whisk eggs and sugar together for a few minutes, until creamy.

Fold in chocolate mixture and raspberries (it doesn’t matter if they get a little squashed).

Fold in flour and pour into the pan.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a wooden skewer inserted comes out almost clean (there’ll be a little cake clinging to it).

Remove from oven, place pan on a wire rack to cool then refrigerate until cold.

Cut into squares and serve.
