A recipe to take brownies to a new level with this sticky, gooey chocolatey treat.
- 200 g dark chocolate (chopped)
- 150 g butter
- 225 g caster sugar
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 150 g plain flour (sifted)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 225 g white chocolate (chopped, plus extra for topping)
- 125 g raspberries (plus a few extra to decorate)
- Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4). Line a 20cm (8in) square deep baking tin with greaseproof paper and grease the base and sides.
- In a large bowl sitting over simmering water (also known as a bain marie), melt the dark chocolate and butter. Stir in the sugar and then gradually add the eggs.
- Add the sifted flour and baking powder followed by 125g of the white chocolate and finally the raspberries.
- Spread the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the oven for 35–45 minutes or until just firm on top.
- Remove from the oven and let sit in the tin for another 30 minutes before cutting into squares and serving.
- Melt the remaining white chocolate in a bowl sitting over simmering water. Stack the brownies on a plate or cake tray and when the chocolate is ready pour it over the top of the brownies.
- Decorate with a few fresh raspberries and watch your friends gasp with excitement.
- Rachel’s tip: These are deliciously moist so will keep for four or five days in an airtight container somewhere cool.
