  • 200g dark chocolate, broken into chunks
  • 100g milk chocolate, broken into chunks
  • 250g pack salted butter
  • 400g soft light brown sugar
  • 4 large egg
  • 140g plain flour
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 200g raspberry



    A member of the rose family, raspberries have a wonderfully intense, sweet taste, and many…


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line a 20 x 30cm baking tray tin with baking parchment. Put the chocolate, butter and sugar in a pan and gently melt, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat.

  2. Stir the eggs, one by one, into the melted chocolate mixture. Sieve over the flour and cocoa, and stir in. Stir in half the raspberries, scrape into the tray, then scatter over the remaining raspberries. Bake on the middle shelf for 30 mins or, if you prefer a firmer texture, for 5 mins more. Cool before slicing into squares. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Absolutely love these! My daughter makes these to de-stress whilst studying & it does the trick every time. Took note of comments and used half the amount of sugar. Firm family favourite.

i found that when i put the eggs in that they cooked!! HELP!

Used frozen raspberries. Probably not a good idea as after baking for 50mins they were still a gooey mess. Great taste but needed a spoon to eat them!

Made these last week and (though I had to cower at the amount of sugar, butter and chocolate!) they were absolutely delish!! The sharpness of the raspberries made such a massive difference, flavourwise, and I will definitely make them again - probably next weekend!
For those having an issue with getting them to cook properly, I split the mixture between two 20x20cm tins and baked them at 180 degrees (fan) for 40mins - they came out perfectly.

Oh my god, these are just amazing. They really are the best ever - thank you Good Food!

Brilliant! So tasty, everyone loves them. The raspberries add an extra zing to the rich chocolate. Easy too. Just put everything in the pan, mix and pour in the tray.

These were delicious. I froze some, and although the raspberries went a little soggy they were still lovely, especially served warm with clotted cream ice cream! I baked them for 35 minutes at 160 in a fan oven but wouldn't put them in for any longer than that so beware!

Very good brownie. Despite the high sugar content people liked them because they didn't taste overly sweet and they loved the addition of the raspberries. Overall though I think there are better brownie recipes. Following the other feedback I baked mine for 45mins as I wanted to make sure they set but I think I slightly over baked them in the end. They do need to be left to cool completely before cutting. Well worth a go and they quickly disappeared.

I have made these three times now, and each time they have been praised by my friends and family. The trick I found was not to eat them straight out of the oven (made this mistake the first time and they were more like cake!!) I also left out a third of the sugar on the last bake which didn't make them any less yummy.
Let them rest and then put them in the fridge to harden up a bit, that is my tip.

I took advise, and baked this for an extra 10 minutes. It tasted wonderful, however because of the softness, I couldn't cut it into neat squares, so presentation wasn't so good. I will give it another try though

Lovely brownies. They were very popular with guests. A bit heavy for me but I don't have much of a sweet tooth. I found timing fine. I just left it a while before cutting into squares.

I did these without the raspberries and they were gorgeous. Maybe the fruit gives out too much moisture because I found the cooking time recommended made the perfect brownie

The name absolutely fits it! I prepared it with 100g less suger and with cherries instead of raspberry because. It's one of my favourite desserts and to my family also.

amazing brownies, everybody loved them! And I've already made them again!

Made these today and they are lovely. Chewy, intense chocolate flavour and the raspberries add a nice sharp kick that cuts through the richness of the chocolate. Shall be making these again!

With regards to the cooking time the 30 minutes proved perfect for me (I have a fan oven) and gave the brownies a nice crunchy top yet still chewy centre.

Yum yum yum!

I really liked the sound of these because I find brownies too sweet and I thought the raspberries would add a good tang.
The taste was excellent but, like others, I found that the cooking time was way too short. After 30 mins the edges were starting to go too hard and the middle was completely runny. I ended up cutting off the edge pieces and putting the rest back in for about 25 minutes. The final result was just the right texture but I wouldn't make them like that again. I think if you split the mixture into two small tins it would set fine in the given time and allow the right soft texture all the way through.
Lovely taste, instructions need tweaking.

Agree that it needs longer in the oven... I had it in there for an extra 10 minutes but the results was fantastic.

Just made these with Frozen raspberries and they turned out fine. 160 fan oven for 45 mins. Next time i will leave them for a little less time but as so many commented on them not setting I wanted to be safe! I did as Jo Bato suggested and put in white choc chunks too. I think the quality of the choc wasn't great though so will not use next time. My boyfriend is just having his third piece though so no complaints here.
