Ingredients for raspberry brownies
While throwing together a boxed mix of brownies is obviously the easiest way to whip up brownies, homemade brownies are *so* worth the extra effort. And this homemade brownie recipe is actually pretty easy to make. You’ll need just 8 ingredients to whip up these super tasty, bakery worthy brownies. Here’s your grocery list.
How to make the most incredible raspberry brownies
Homemade brownies are pretty straightforward to make, but we do have a few tricks up our sleeves to guarantee you out of this world, tasty brownies every time!
Use a high quality Dutch-processed cocoa powder: This is so crucial to homemade brownie baking. Homemade brownies call for just a few simply ingredients, so the quality of your ingredients will really shine through. We always use Rodelle Dutch-processed cocoa powder, but any other high quality cocoa powder will work too!
Beat the eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy: This is the key to that crackly-top brownie! It’s easiest to do this in a stand mixer, but you can also do it by hand or with a hand mixer if thats all you have on hand!
Don’t over mix the batter: Once you add the dry ingredients into the batter, only mix until just combined. The more you mix, the more glutens that develop which can lead to a tough brownie. You want soft, fudgy brownies so only fold the batter until not streaks of flour remain!
Underbake the brownies slightly: Bake times for brownies can be a little tricky because ovens can run SO differently and brownies are, well, brown, so you can’t always tell if they’re getting overcooked just by looking at them! Be sure to keep an eye on your brownies starting at around 20 minutes to make sure you don’t accidentally over bake them. You’ll know they’re done when they’re set around the edges and a knife inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs on it!
How to store raspberry brownies
This pan of brownies is usually gone suspiciously quickly in our household, but if you do happen to have leftovers, we recommend storing these in an airtight container or tightly wrapped in the fridge. It’s important to store they brownies in the fridge (not on the counter at room temperature) because the fresh fruit can get a little funky!
Place the melted butter, cocoa powder, and vanilla in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine until no lumps of cocoa remain. Set aside.
In a stand mixer fit with the whisk attachment, beat the eggs and brown sugar together until light, fluffy and pale in color.
Add the butter mixture to the egg mixture and use a rubber spatula to fold together.
Add the flour and the salt and fold the mixture until no streaks of flour remain. Last, gently fold in the raspberries and chocolate chips (if using)
Transfer mixture into prepared baking pan and bake for roughly 25 minutes, testing for doneness by inserting a knife into the center of the brownies beginning at 20 minutes. You’ll know they’re done when the edge is set, but a knife inserted into the middle still comes out with a bit of brownie batter on it. It might take up to 35 minutes for them to cook through depending on your oven!
We like to make these with fresh raspberries, but to prevent them from breaking up when you fold them into the batter, we place them in the freezer for an hour to firm up! If you use store bought frozen raspberries they tend to emit more juice which can make your brownies more cakey!
