Raspberry Fudge Brownies for National Chocolate Week

Raspberry Fudge Brownies

This one pan brownie recipe is super quick and easy. It produces a tray of rich, flavoursome raspberry fudge brownies in no time. The brownie batter is made with dark raspberry chocolate, then studded with lush fresh raspberries and pieces of white chocolate. What’s not to love?

With my Divine chocolate stash for #NationalChocolateWeek, I couldn’t go without making something with at least one of the bars. An excuse, if any were needed, to indulge. We Should Cocoa is all about the USA this month so as Cornish autumn raspberries are still available and having a bar of Divine raspberry 70% dark chocolate to hand, it’s a no brainer – raspberry fudge brownies it is.

Raspberry Fudge Brownies

Brownies are an American classic that I was first introduced to over twenty years ago by an American baking friend. I’d never heard of them before and was delighted by their sweet chocolatey fudginess. I’m not sure I’ve ever managed to make any quite as good as hers, but I never give up trying. They are my go to bake when I’m in a hurry.

Raspberry Fudge Brownie

These are quick to make and slightly healthier than your average brownie as they’re made with wholemeal flour and less butter than most brownie recipes. It goes without saying, they’re also quite delicious, being both fudgy and fruity with bursts of caramelised white chocolate. The weekend starts here. Now where’s that clotted cream?

Author: Choclette

Ingredients

  • 60 g unsalted butter
  • 150 g light muscovado sugar
  • 100 g raspberry flavoured 70% dark chocolate (I used Divine)
  • 2 large free range eggs (I used duck eggs)
  • 60 g wholemeal flour
  • 50 g white chocolate chips
  • 100 g raspberries

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a large pan over a gentle heat.
  • Break up the chocolate, turn off the heat and add to the pan. Stir until melted and combined.
  • Beat in the eggs, one by one.
  • Stir in the flour followed by the white chocolate.
  • Fold in 80g of the raspberries as gently as possible so as not to break them up too much.
  • Scrape the mixture into an 8" / 20cm sq silicone cake mould or lined tin.
  • Bake at 180C for about 20 minutes when the top should be set, but the mixture still has a slight wobble.
  • Leave to cool in the pan and then cut into 12 slices.

Notes

Getting the texture of a brownie just right is not always easy. Leave it too long and it can become cakey rather than fudgy, but take it out too soon and you can end up with goo. If this happens, place it in the fridge for a few hours and it should firm up. In my experience, it's always better to undercook than overcook.

We Should Cocoa LogoTracy over at It’s Not Easy Being Greedy has chosen the theme, USA, for this month’s chocolate extravaganza, aka We Should Cocoa. Brownies are one of America’s best known bakes over here in the UK and I have done my fair share of spreading that brownie love.

As the Cornish raspberries were bought at my local greengrocer’s, the properly free range duck eggs at our Friday Country Market and the flour from our local mill at Cotehele, I’m sending these raspberry fudge brownies off to Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary for Shop Local.

Brownies are just perfect when you’re In a Hurry, which is the theme for this month’s Love Cake with Ness at JibberJabberUK.

Apart from sugar, eggs are pretty much the main ingredient in brownies, so these also go to Dashing Dom over at Belleau Kitchen for Simply Eggcellent.

I’m cheekily sending these raspberry fudge brownies off to the ever forgiving pair at Alpha BakesCaroline Makes and The More Than Occasional Baker. The letter is W for the Wholemeal Flour which is an integral part of this brownie recipe.

And lastly these brownies are winging their way to Bake of the Week with Helen at Casa Costello.

I’m also sharing this with Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen and the #FoodYearLinkup for #NationalChocolateWeek.

    How absolutely Divine in all aspects! I must look out for the raspberry flavour of the chocolate. In my experience brownies don’t last long after they have been made!

    Yes, definitely a healthy recipe because of the wholemeal flour …. lol, lol
    You might as well have an extra slice then, I suppose ?

    You are very lucky to be able to buy fresh, free range, local duck eggs !
    As well as local raspberries at this time of year.

They certainly fit the USA brief for #WeShouldCocoa – thanks so much for sharing. By the way, there’s something rather lovely about an undercooked brownie – or is it just me?!

    National Chocolate Week, I only just read the title with more consciousness. I suppose this week is followed by National Diet Week ? And is this week a monthly affair ? It would be interesting to find out if something like a Chocolate Diet exists. That is both weeks combined in one, leaving room for, let’s say, National Whipped Cream Week …. Funny British people you are. Looking forward to my next visit :))

      I couldn’t stop giggling when I read this Henk and although I like the idea of National Whipped Cream Week, I think National Clotted Cream Week would be better. As for the chocolate diet, I think I’ve been on that all my life 😉 In all seriousness National Chocolate Week is about raising the awareness of real and artisan chocolate rather than most of the rubbish we eat here.

    These look simply DEVINE! Chocolate and raspberries are one of my all time favorite flavor combinations. Have you ever tried freezing your brownies? I actually cut my brownies in to bite size pieces, freeze them and eat them straight from the freezer. They don’t freeze solid. Instead the maintain their amazing Fudgy-ness and they become more chewy… But in a good chewy kind of way. And if I’m feeling really naughty, then I’ll mix those frozen brownie bites into a big bowl of ice cream topped with whipped cream and salted nuts.
