Raspberry and white chocolate brownies

And now for something completely different (to my rant about the Summernats bogans, I mean): raspberry and white chocolate brownies! Let's start with the cast of characters:

Chop the butter and put it in the top of a double boiler:

Add the dark chocolate:

Melt the butter and chocolate together over boiling water:

Stir until it's completely melted together:

While the butter and chocolate mixture is cooling, put the brown sugar in a mixing bowl:
Once the chocolate mixture has cooled, pour into the bowl with the sugar:

And stir to combine:

Add the vanilla extract, and make a note to move cup measures out of the frame in future:

And the eggs:

Then sift in the flour, and make a note to move all iPods, packets of white chocolate, cookbooks, and laptops out of the frame in future. And to dust the outside of my sifter:

Then add the baking powder. Okay, it doesn't show up on top of the flour, but it's there, dammit!:
Chop up the white chocolate:

And dump it in the bowl with the rest of the ingredients:

Then measure out the raspberries. Fresh or frozen is fine. These ones look unfortunately like an internal organ being weighed during autopsy. I'm sorry. I really am. I don't know why I say these things sometimes... Although it could have something to do with the fact that I've spent half of today watching Bones on DVD. On a different note, I really wish my kitchen had decent natural light so I could stop using the flash...:

Add the raspberries to the bowl and mix it all together:

Spread into a greased and lined lamington pan:

Let's take a closer look, shall we?:

And bake it at 180 degrees for about 45 minutes:

Cool in the tin, then cut them up. And make another note to move laptops out of the frame in future:

The recipe claims to make 20, but the way I cut them makes 48. Then eat them and go 'omnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnom' repeatedly:

Oh, and if they're not quite rich enough for your liking, you can take out some of the flour and replace it with cocoa. Enjoy!!

  1. Yum! I can feel the cholesterol building as I look at the pictures...

    If you don't want to use the flash, maybe try a tripod with auto-timer? But I agree, the internal organs make for a delightful photo.

  2. Aah yes, but I now have a fun new toy which allows me to set the shutter speed, the f-stop, the ISO, and the white balance, thereby eliminating the need for the flash in the future, provided the kitchen lights are on. Huzzah!! :D
