Orange flour

Raspberry and Fudge Marbled Brownies

DSC_0055

A childhood favourite of chocolate brownies, with a facelift making them much more indulgent! (p.s. many apologies – the cream cheese recipe I used makes far too much so if you can find a better one, go forth and conquer! p.p.s. I decided that more fudge was definitely needed, therefore my photo above doesn’t have fudge sprinkled on top).

Ingredients:

brownies:
150g good quality dark chocolate
150g butter
2 eggs + 1 yolk
185g caster sugar
40g plain flour
40g good quality cocoa powder
1/3tsp baking powder

cream cheese:
1 cup raspberries, lightly mashed
220g cream cheese
100g caster sugar
1 egg
1/2tsp vanilla essence
fudge squares

Method:

(preheat oven to 170*c and grease and line a 22″ square baking tray)

– to prepare the cream cheese, simply combine all of the ingredients and put in the fridge until needed

– break up the chocolate and place in a small bowl with the butter over a pan of boiling water to melt
– whisk together the sugar and eggs until pale
– add the chocolate mixture to the sugar and eggs
– sift in the dry ingredients and mix well, then stir through the fudge squares
– pour the mixture into your baking tray
– spoon over several tsp of the cream cheese mix and use a sharp knife or skewer to marble through the chocolate
– for a final touch, push some whole raspberries into the brownies and sprinkle with more fudge squares
– bake for 30-35mins (you will be able to smell the chocolatey aroma when it is done!)
– leave to cool before cutting into squares

(transform your brownies into a delicious dessert by serving with ice cream or double cream and more fresh raspberries)
