Yummy Chocolatey Raspberry Brownies
A sweet, mouth-watering dessert recipe is Yummy Chocolatey Raspberry Brownies. The raspberry jam layer adds more flavor and texture. Wonderful dessert for Valentines or a party. It’s not gonna hurt if you add a bit more raspberries and chocolate chunks to your taste.
The other day I was baking a vanilla buttercream frosted cake. Of course, I followed the instructions to the letter. As always, I taste the raw batter even though they tell you not to because of the raw eggs. The cake batter tasted similar to a pound cake recipe I often make for friends of mine who have lost loved ones. Something told me to mix it like I do my pound cake; however, I mixed according to the directions.
Should have known. I cooked with a convection oven and didn’t allow more time because you cook at a lower temperature. First mistake. Second, the recipe said to not overmix. So I mixed it on medium. I should have mixed it on high till the cake mixture became shiny. I was cooking this for Christmas dinner. It was a flop! Couldn’t frost it because the centers fell. My husband and I ended up eating the outside as snacks because it was sugary crusty. Thank goodness I had previously baked a chocolate buttercream cake to take.
You will notice in the instructions to mix with a blender. I saw 2 versions of this recipe. One stated to stir and the other mix. You’ve got both options.
Note: For cake-like brownies, you would use self-rising flour. For fudgey brownies, you would use all-purpose flour.
