Thick, gooey and oh so fudgey chocolate chip brownies with raspberries.. the perfect raspberry brownies.


So… who knew that SO MANY PEOPLE would want this recipe. Even just as I am writing this I have had a request for the recipe, so it seems a good fit! Definitely, a sought after one. 

I realise that I put on a lot of recipes that they are requested recipes, but that’s genuine because they are! As I now have 475+ recipes on my blog, I rely on requests as I already have so many! If you ever wanted to request a recipe yourself, send me an email, or comment on a blog post! 

Raspberry brownies

Anyway… back to these bad boys. I have done SO much experimenting to get these right, as I really do want them to be perfect. And from the start, I will say that the method to this recipe is different from my other brownies, but the ingredients are extremely similar. 

The reasoning behind this is, the fruit can cause you mayhem in brownies, as they already have to be so exact, and the moisture from the fruit can ruin a brownie in seconds. These, however?! Perfection. If I can say so myself… 

My other brownies, such as my triple chocolate brownies, or my Kinder Bueno brownies, for example, all use the whisking of eggs/sugar method, where you make it into as thick a mix as possible and fold everything together. I stand by these recipes as they really are EPIC.

However, after trying countless times, I just couldn’t get it to be how I wanted for these ones! Therefore, I tried a slightly different method. The quantity of chocolate and butter is the same, the sugar is the same, the eggs are the same, it’s just the dried ingredients are slightly increased to make the batter thicker.


For these ones, you melt the chocolate, butter and sugar together in a pan till smooth. Then you (one by one) mix in the eggs once the mixture has cooled slightly. And then, you mix in the flour and cocoa powder. It creates a much thicker mixture compared to my other brownies and therefore means it’s much better for the fruit. 

You can, of course, use this method for my other brownies too, but I do still utterly adore the other method and I won’t personally be changing them. 

Raspberries and chocolate

I then add in fresh raspberries (as frozen can make them take longer to bake), and pour into the dish. Sprinkle on some chocolate chips and a few more raspberries, and you bake! 

This recipe creates such thick and gooey brownies, that are oh so fudgy and utterly delicious. The fruit gives them a tartness that cuts through the sweetness, but the chocolate chips give them the chocolate pockets you crave. They really are heavenly. 

Other recipes to try!

Keyword: Chocolate, Raspberry
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Cooling Time: 2 hours
Servings: 16 Pieces
Author: Jane's Patisserie


  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 200 g unsalted butter
  • 275 g caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs (or 3 Large)
  • 150 g plain flour
  • 50 g cocoa powder
  • 300 g raspberries
  • 150 g chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan, and line a 9x9" square tin with parchment paper.
  • Add your dark chocolate, butter and sugar to a pan, and melt on a low heat. Stir frequently so the chocolate doesn't burn, and melt until it's smooth.
  • Transfer the mix to a bowl, and leave to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Add in the eggs, one at a time, stiring in fully each time.
  • Add in the flour, and cocoa powder, and stir until combined.
  • Add in 2/3 of the raspberries, and stir through.
  • Pour the mixture into the tin, and then sprinkle over the chocolate chips and the rest of the raspberries.
  • Bake the brownies in the oven for 30-35 minutes!
  • Leave the brownies to cool in the tin fully!


  • PLEASE USE DARK CHOCOLATE IN THE MIX. It's very important - milk chocolate should be avoided for this bit.
  • You can sprinkle on white/milk or dark chocolate, however. 
  • I used fresh raspberries as they were in season, and are delicious. You can use frozen, but be prepared that it can take a little longer to bake.
  • Some brownies can naturally take longer to bake in some ovens as temperatures in ovens can often be incorrect without you knowing. 
  • Check the brownies after 25 minutes - mine took on average 32 minutes. 
  • These will last for 3-4 days once made!

    I have made this a few times and it has always been great. Today I made it with gluten free flour to accomodate a food allergy and it was equally as delicious. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

  5. Sofia on October 24, 2023 at 5:50 pm

    Is there anything you’d change when doubling up the recipe?

  6. Sandra on September 18, 2023 at 10:29 pm

    In the oven now can’t wait until tomorrow morning guess what I’m having for breakfast 😋

    These are absolutely fantastic and came out so perfectly thanks to the detailed recipe and explanations. Amazing- about to make a second batch for a dinner party.

  8. Dina on July 20, 2023 at 6:03 pm

    Hi. What can I use instead of Raspberries?
    I have frozen strawberries but a little worried to use. I’m thinking digestive biscuits. Would they work? Any other recommendations? Thanks

  9. Tash on May 18, 2023 at 9:05 pm

    Do you beat the eggs before adding them them to the mix? Can’t wait to try this recipe.

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 22, 2023 at 11:02 am

      Hiya – no you don’t as you mix them in the recipe!

    Hands down the best brownies I’ve ever had! I needed to leave them in the oven for 40 minutes, then let them cool in the tin and then refrigerated them. Amazing!

    Great recipe made them for my mother and she absolutely loved them couldn’t get enough. I also decided to use only 200g of sugar and it made the brownines not at sweet as usual ones so if you like the dark chocolate and rasberry combo but don’t like it being to sweet go for less sugar.

    These are sooo thick and decadent! I can only eat one at a time so they were mostly given to my office but I’d absolutely make them again.

  13. W on April 22, 2022 at 11:44 am

    The tartness of the raspberries..richness of the brownie; a combination that was definitely not to my taste. This is not a recipe that I will be making again.

      Hello – we received your other comment accusing Jane of censoring comments. Please be patient and allow adequate time for approval of comments as there are hundreds of comments every day, and the team cannot be on the blog throughout the day, every day, and every comment is held for approval to prevent spam comments. It’s a pity you didn’t like the brownies as raspberry and chocolate together are a delicious combination that many other people adore. Thanks! Team Jane.

    • PW on May 1, 2022 at 8:10 pm

      That’s a shame. I love them, for me it’s great combination (and the various people I’ve shared them with love them too). But everyone has their own tastes!

  14. Kirsty on March 23, 2022 at 8:37 am

    Can I make these gluten free? If so what shall I use?

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 23, 2022 at 2:08 pm

      Hiya! Just straight swap the ingredients containing gluten with alternatives! Hope this helps! x

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 15, 2022 at 2:43 pm

      Hiya! Take a look at my vegan brownie recipe, and add in raspberries! Hope this helps! x

  16. Jenna on August 29, 2021 at 6:40 pm

    Do you think these would work well using raspberry ruffles instead of raspberries?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 31, 2021 at 2:36 pm

      I have not tried or tested this so unfortunately I cannot advise x

  17. Rebecca on August 4, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Can I ask what kind of dark chocolate do you use? Bournville type dark, or stronger like a 70%? Thanks so much,

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 6, 2021 at 11:21 am

      In baking I always recommend 70% or darker – its the cocoa content that is important! xx

    I absolutely love these brownies! Have made them a few times now.
    I find after the cooking time you suggested they are still not cooked. I end up cooking them for 25mins extra. Am I doing something wrong? I follow the recipe exactly as stated and have the size tin suggested. I had a gas oven previously and thought could be that. We now have a fan assisted oven and I have the same problem. Should I just be taking them out at the time specified even though there is still a ‘wobble’ on the top?
    Thank you 😊

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 10, 2021 at 12:44 pm

      Hello, what dark chocolate do you use and how are you mixing it?xx

    • Katie on August 5, 2021 at 2:00 pm

      Normally you take brownies out when they’re still gooey on top and then they set while they’re cooling down! X

  19. Karen on April 10, 2021 at 10:26 am

    Once frozen what is the best way to defrost please?

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 13, 2021 at 1:02 pm

      Hello! Yes they can, leave them at room temperature or microwave them!xx

    • Angela Cook on December 19, 2021 at 9:42 am

      Hi, could you sprinkle gold /silver edible dust over the raspberry brownies for Christmas. Thanks.

  24. Matt on February 16, 2021 at 7:09 pm

    hello Jane, if I would like to do a bigger batch should I like double time of baking? for at least 45-60 min?

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 16, 2021 at 7:59 pm

      It depends on the size of tin, but generally for best results you would use the tin size specified!

    Can you use stork instead of butter?

  28. Wendy on January 22, 2021 at 6:56 pm

    A Google search tells me that caster sugar is a fine sugar. Would that be powdered sugar for us Americans? Thank you. This sounds delicious!

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 24, 2021 at 8:15 pm

      I believe our caster sugar is just your superfine sugar according to google!

    Do you cut the raspberries? Or place them in whole? Will they sink to the bottom?

      I leave them whole, and they didn’t sink for me x

    Another excellent recipe – love the different method. Very easy and extremely lovely fudgey brownies. I mixed some of the chocolate chips in when putting in the raspberries and then put the rest on top as per the recipe. I baked for around 32/33 mins and they were perfection !!

  33. Winata on November 2, 2020 at 11:50 pm

    Love a your brownie recipies. I just wondered why this particular recipe method is different to all your other brownie recipies? For example whisking the egg and sugars first then adding in the melted butter and chocolate?

    Sorry – forgot to rate!

  35. Kayla on October 18, 2020 at 9:00 am

    These were delicious. I used frozen raspberries so had to bake them just shy of an hour but the wobble tip was very helpful!

    I chopped up some chocolate instead of using chocolate chips and that worked just fine.

    Perfect with a scoop of ice cream. Although it was sooooo hard to let them cool and not scoff them straight out of the tin!

  36. Hannah Attfield on October 13, 2020 at 10:58 am

    hey – stupid question do you whisk egg before or just add in and then stir?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 13, 2020 at 11:30 am

      For this brownie recipe, no you don’t! Just add them in and stir! x

  37. S on October 6, 2020 at 7:56 pm

    Could I bake these in a circular tin and if so what size would it need to be?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 7, 2020 at 2:21 pm

      I usually say a square tin equals a circular tin, one inch bigger. So, a 9″ square is a 10″ round x

    Mine are currently in the oven and smell amazing! They are looking very good so far but not quite cooked yet from last time I checked. Do you have any tips to know when they are done because I know brownies can look super gooey when you take them out the oven but tend to harden once cooled?

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 25, 2020 at 5:25 pm

      I usually look for a small wobble in the tray and then let it cool fully – you can then also put it in the fridge for a few hours to firm up wonderfully! I find the skewer test a bit awkward with brownies, but if its covered in batter they aren’t done!

  41. Hayls on August 21, 2020 at 11:37 pm

    Do you store it in the fridge?

    Delicious brownies! This is now my favourite recipe. I love the gooey inside and the raspberries on top. Instead of using chocolate chips I used more Berry’s! I love this and I would 100% recommend.

  43. Jessica on August 13, 2020 at 1:52 pm


    If you’re using frozen raspberries do they need to be defrosted first?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 13, 2020 at 2:28 pm

      No I would just use them from frozen!!

    The most yummy brownies you’ll ever eat! Mine took about 45 minutes to cook but they are so gooey, thick and chocolatey! The raspberry’s give them such a lovely flavour and really goes well with the chocolate. Great recipe x

  45. Rads on July 9, 2020 at 3:06 pm

    Hi Jane, could red currants be used instead of raspberries? I have a lot of red currants to use up. Thanks X

  46. barbara langton on June 28, 2020 at 12:35 pm

    Hi jane if I use frozen raspberries… can I freeze after been baked? Am wanting to make a large batch

    Thanks x

  47. Vanessa on June 18, 2020 at 3:33 pm

    Hi could I use normal granulated sugar instead of caster sugar ?

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 18, 2020 at 7:16 pm

      Yes that’s fine! Just make sure the sugar crystals have dissolved properly as they are bigger!

  48. Katy on June 9, 2020 at 8:22 pm


    Could you substitute the raspberries for something like fudge or biscuit – I have an annoying daughter who is so fussy with fruit!

    Thank you

  49. Angela Phillips on June 5, 2020 at 2:09 pm

    Hi. I only have a 8×8 square tin. Would this still work?

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 6, 2020 at 12:11 pm

      Hey! So the volume is about 1/5 less, so it would obviously make them deeper and take longer to bake, or you can reduce the quantities slightly x

    Loved this, as did EVERYONE who ate them. Turns out you can’t eat just one! Chopped up white chocolate instead of choc chips. Also because of lockdown sugar was in short supply in the shops today so I used a mix of what I had left in the house- caster/soft brown/granulated.

  51. Emma on May 30, 2020 at 1:18 pm

    Hi I was wondering if substituting the raspberries for strawberries would work as well?

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 30, 2020 at 4:31 pm

      Sometimes strawberries can produce more moisture, and sometimes not have as much taste – but otherwise, they should work fine! x

    Hello I want to bake this today and I’m off to the mart. I would like to know if I can swap the fresh or frozen rasperries with dried berries. I have a big pack of craisins in my pantry and I’m looking to use them instead but with your other brownie method since it doesn’t need to be thick cos of the fresh /frozen berries. What are your thoughts please?
    P.S I love your page and content alot.
    God bless

  56. Eilidh on October 27, 2019 at 12:13 pm

    How far in advance can I make these if I’m storying in air-tight tub? I need them for this Thursday. Can’t wait to try these!!

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 27, 2019 at 12:16 pm

      These will last for 3-4 days once made!

  57. Lisa on October 13, 2019 at 4:31 pm

    Great recipe and followed to the book, though have struggled to get them cooked in the middle.

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 15, 2019 at 9:20 am

      As mentioned in the post it can take a while due to the fruit, and ovens being incorrect temps!

  58. Sarah Fewings on September 28, 2019 at 8:28 am

    These look amazing! Can the butter, flour and chocolate be changed to make it gluten and dairy free?

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 28, 2019 at 10:38 am

      Hey! The dark chocolate you use can be dairy-free by itself, butter can easily be switched, and the flour may make it softer – but as long as the eggs are still in there, and the rest of the ingredients, they’d be fine!

    Beautiful brownies….raspberries cut the sweetness beautifully!

  60. Emelia on September 17, 2019 at 5:03 pm

    Does the sugar had to have fully dissolved before leaving it for 10 minutes or just the mixture to be smooth looking?

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 17, 2019 at 8:31 pm

      Just smooth looking – the sugar will dissolve somewhat during melting of the butter and chocolate, so it’ll be enough!
