Valentines Day Brownies

Hello Everyone!

As Valentines Day is just around the corner, I wanted to bake something for this weeks post that could be used as a great gift and could also be made any other day of the year. I wasn’t really sure what to make as my boyfriend and I don’t really celebrate Valentines Day, but as I was scrolling through a few Pinterest recipes, I thought ‘why not make raspberry chocolate brownies?’ They include chocolate and the colour red, so it seemed like the perfect choice! Let’s get baking! 🙂

You Will Need:

  • 200g butter
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries

What To Do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celcius and line a brownie tin with baking paper.
  2. Melt the butter over medium heat. Add the cocoa powder and stir until smooth.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well after each addition.
  4. Pour in the sugar and vanilla essence and stir until all the sugar has dissolved.
  5. Sift in the flour and baking powder, stir until well combined.
  6. Fold in the raspberries and pour mixture into the prepared baking tin.
  7. Place in the oven for about 40 minutes and allow to cool on a wire rack.
  8. Once cool, sprinkle with icing sugar and cut into 12 squares.
