Method

  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.

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.

My sister said best brownies she'd had in a long time

Absolutely delicious! I have made them three times after getting requests. They are very gooey so would suggest leaving them longer for a more firmer brownie. If you are a chocoholic like me, you will love them :).

Best brownies I have ever tried. Incredible.

I am a truly useless baker... but these come out just like the photograph, which is fantastic and useful as they dont last very long so we can always look at the photograph once they have all been scoffed. Everyone who has tried them loves them. I agree about them needing a bit more time in the oven, glad its not just me. I find once the top has a bit of a crust, they are perfect, gooey yumminess on a plate.

OMG, it was super delicious! I made it with strawberries, and Im planning to try it with cherries too!
I cooked them 10 minutes longer than it was suggested and I also used 200g of brown sugar instead of 400g. I cut them into small squares, as they are so chocolatey, I can easily overdose myself :P

WONDERFUL!!!
Made these today for a picnic. Everyone absolutely loved them. Substituted milk chocolate for white chocolate (to compliment the raspberries) and didn't melt the white chocolate; I just chopped roughly and stirred through at the end with the raspberries. Put 50g of white chocolate chunks on the top too with the extra raspberries. Used 300g of frozen raspberries (that were not only loads cheaper than fresh but held their shape really well). Added these in frozen which chilled the mixture (I find chilled cake batter always rises better). Used half dark brown sugar and golden caster sugar instead and cooked for an extra 10 minutes (wanted firmer slices for the picnic – would leave gooey if serving as a dessert)!

No probs with sloppiness using 200g raspberries. Not surprised these are yummy with the amount of sugar in them. Felt the fat piling on just measuring it in. Unfortunately these are scummy the tartness of raspberry against the chocolate does indeed make these moreish thou too many still warm became sickly, better leave some for the kids ....

It was for a special occasion. I used frozen berries and extra time in oven. I am thinking one can use some other fruit like orange black currents blue berries.

I tried these and this my very first time I make brownies. They turned out beautifully delicious. I also needed 10 min extra.

I have made loads of time and cook for 30 minutes. They are squidgy but have the right consistency when they have cooled down and I could slice like the picture. My kids love them and I have made with strawberries and blueberries as well. Will try will bananas next time.

I only had a smaller pan so doubled the cooking time and they turned out perfect. I also added blackberries to make a total of 200g of berries. Lichte Bruin Basterdsuiker is equivalent to soft brown sugar - every grocery store I've been in NL has it. I used up some white basterdsuiker and dark brown basterdsuiker for this recipe and it worked out fine. They froze beautifully too.

Heavenly - so easy to make and so delicious! The raspberries stopped them being too rich/sweet although next time I will try a lttle less sugar. I used half fresh half frozen raspberries as that's what I had and it worked fine. Cooked for 30 mins as I like gooey brownies and they were lovely but would have been a little less messy to eat with another 5 mins! Will definitely be making again.

This recipe is great and EVERYONE loves them. They are so easy to make and so good to eat!

I put 100g in the mixture but another 100g on the top would have been too much so I put about 30g on the top.

Super super super delicious. On my second go, I used 200 grams of sugar instead of 400, and they were still incredible. In my opinion it brought out the flavour of the raspberries more.
Also, if you roll them in aluminum foil as airtight as possible, they'll last for over a week!

I used muscavado sugar and baked for 45 minues which seemed to work well. They were delicious!
