Bake of the week : Chocolate and Raspberry Brownies

You may remember that a little while ago I reviewed The Ultimate Student Cookbook, and mentioned that one of the recipes which I was keen to try were the Chocolate and raspberry brownies...well, I finally got around to making them. Actually, I have made them twice now, but the first batch got polished off before I could take a photograph. I love the addition of raspberries to the mix (it makes them healthy of course!) and I like the fact that using cocoa powder instead of chocolate makes them a lot cheaper!

PS: I promise some Christmas themed bake of the weeks from next week onwards...I'm thinking Nigella's Christmas Morning Muffins, Christmas rock cakes, mincemeat shortcake, my shortbread nativity, and possibly some stollen and a gingerbread house. Any other favourite Christmas bakes I could try?


  1. Looks delicious Verity! I love the combination of chocolate and raspberry, it's my favourite Godiva truffle.

    The Heiress loves something called Yuletide slices.


    Have a peek!
