From this very easy recipe you get excellent chocolate-raspberry brownies, make a lot – there will not be enough of them all!
Preheat the oven to 180C/ fan 160/ gas 4. Grease a baking tin or brownie tin, preferably 28cm x 18cm x 2.5cm, and line with greaseproof paper.
Put the dark chocolate into a heatproof bowl set over a pan of hot, but not boiling, water, making sure the base of the bowl does not touch the water. Leave to melt, stirring occasionally, then remove the bowl from the pan.
Whisk the butter and sugar together in a bowl until light and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs, beating well after each egg is added.
Add the vanilla extract, the melted chocolate and stir in gently using a spatula. Sieve the flour and cocoa into the bowl then fold in the nuts and white chocolate pieces until the mixture is evenly blended.
Spoon half the mixture into the prepared tin and spread evenly. Scatter the raspberries over the top of the brownie mixture, top with remaining mixture and spread evenly.
Bake for 30-40 minutes until the mixture feels firm when pressed. Remove from the oven and cool in the tin on a wire rack. When cold cut the brownie into 24 squares.
