I have posted previously about my love of raspberries. I had bought a large frozen packet of them the other day, and I was dying to eat them. I love them on their own as a snack, with breakfast or as a dessert. I love to add them to all sorts of things!
Anyway I decided to make brownies. I was thinking fudgy, dark chocolate chunks with raspberries. Brownies can be one of the hardest things to bake. Basically if you like them quite gooy, bake them for about 15 minutes, a little more cake like 25 minutes. Personally I think that the cake-like ones should be iced, with a ganache.
125 grams butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
180 grams dark chocolate, chopped
4 eggs lightly beaten
1/3 cup self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
1/3 cup cocoa powder, I love the nestle one, it is so chocolatey!
1/3 cup chocolate bits, you can add more of coarse
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup frozen berries
Preheat the oven to 170C.
Melt the butter, sugar and chocolate together, in a large saucepan. Add the eggs and mix using a whisk.
Sift the dry ingredients, flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa into a bowl.
Pour the melted chocolate into the sifted dry ingredients, and stir until just combined.
Then add the extra chocolate, coconut and the berries. Then mix.
Pour it into a brownie tin, and bake for desired time.
I baked mine for 20 minutes. It should feel quite soft to touch. When you take it out of the oven it should collapse and crack slightly.
