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.

I followed the recipe exactly and it was basically still liquid in the middle. I then read the comments so baked for another 25 minutes and it's still complete mush! I understand people suggesting tweaks like longer baking times, adding less sugar etc, but why then give the recipe 4 or 5 stars? It's quite clearly not fit for purpose as it is but if you go by the ratings you are led to believe it's a great recipe. My advice, find another recipe.

Tastes lovely but could do with less sugar. Also, it is very gooey. What I should have done is cover it in foil after the allotted time, then continue to bake, so it's not still like mixture in the centre, while not burning the top. We live and learn!

Made these for the first time today. Followed the recipe exactly apart from the sugar, reduced that to 250g. Cooked for 40 mins and the brownies were perfect, still nice and squidgy inside. The raspberries cut through the chocolate nicely. These will definitely be made again!

So delicious! Easy to make and come out fudgy and soft in the middle. This remains my go-to brownie recipe.

Whoops, sorry BBC . I see now that you are meant to put the sugar in with the butter and chocolate! Duh!

I see I am not alone in forgetting to put in the sugar! Had to snatch it out of the oven quickly to add the sugar! But in my defence, there is no mention of sugar in the method!! Come on BBC I use a lot of your recipes but this one needs editing! Fingers crossed it cooks OK because if not I have wasted a lot of expensive ingredients..

STOP THE PRESS...AND THE SUGAR! As a sugar fiend who enjoys the sweetest of treats from battenburg to candy floss, I was devastated when I realised I had forgotten the sugar when I mixed in the eggs. I went ahead, trusting in the sugar content of the chocolate, and it was a revelation! The 10 of us couldn't stop eating it, much less imagine how sweet it would have been...

the first time I tried this they didn't turn out good. I didn't have the right size tin. it was too deep so therefore didn't cook in the middle and were very gooey and messy. I tried them again but I used a proper brownie tin and they turned out perfect! I halved the amount of sugar that time to 200g and it was just the right amount as they were not too sweet and sickly

I accidentally used caster sugar, will this make a big difference?

Thanks for your question. No, that won't be a problem. Soft light brown sugar has a richer flavour but caster will still work fine. Take a look at our sugar guide for more information about the different types of sugar: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/glossary/sugar

Hiya, how long should the choc/sugar/butter mixture be left to cool for?

Thanks for your question. As you're heating the mixture gently, you don't need to leave it to cool. Make sure it's off the heat before adding the eggs and stir each egg through straight away.

Is it absolutely necessary to use the full 400g sugar and 250g butter (as well as 300g of chocolate) or can the amounts be reduced somewhat without affecting the outcome? If so, what would you recommend reducing them to? Many thanks.

I had to put these brownies back in the oven 6 times. The middle just wasn't cooked at all. Pan size as per recipe, oven temperature as per recipe. Very annoying.

Tried these tonight and the result was amazing! Deep, gooey, mega chocolatey with the sharp tang of the raspberries providing a wonderful contrast of flavour. Does anyone know if they freeze ok?

I make raspberry gin by leaving fresh raspberries in a Kilner jar of gin for a few months. When the gin is bottled, the leftover raspberries make an excellent substitution for the fresh ones in this recipe - boozy chocolate & raspberry brownies, it's a winner :)

I have made these a million times and they always turn out really good. I recently tried them with Gluten Free plain flour and they came out so well. Lots of GF brownie recipes seemed to over-complicate, so I was really happy that this was able to withstand a like-for-like substitution.

I'm sure that seasoned cooks would know this automatically, but given the sparsity of instructions this is a note to the amateurs among us (myself included) to leave the mixture to cool significantly before adding the eggs, as the hot mixture can cause them to scramble within the batter if you're not quick enough at stirring each one in!

We used tinned blackberries, draining the syrup first. Makes for a cheaper option especially when out of season. We halved sugar in brownie mix as berries were preserved in sugar syrup. Also cooked for an extra 3 mins due to extra liquid in tinned berries. Serve with yoghurt!
