Sunday Baking: Raspberry Brownies

My friend Vikki at work has been baking periodically all term and selling her wares on a Friday breaktime, to raise funds for a child she is sponsoring in Burundi. Friday is a good day for cake in the staffroom because everyone's defences are low. This is the last week of the longest term, so I offered to bake something too, because defences will be SUPER low.

This is my favourite brownie recipe, by Lily Vanilli. It has chocolate and cocoa in it, so they are extra chocolatey. I added a layer of raspberries on top of the batter, expecting them to sink in, but as you can see, they did not. If I hadn't been in quite such a hurry to get them in the oven, I might have poured in half the batter, then sprinkled on the raspberries, then added the rest of the batter; I didn't want to stir them in, for fear of breaking them up.

Unfortunately, I baked these for just a little too long, too. They lost their delightful brownie squidginess. Oh well, I will just have to make another batch soon.
