Mascapone and raspberry brownies

I know I have banged on before about having the most awesome brownie recipe but recently they have gone a little wild and trebled in awesomeness! Over the last 3 weeks I have made trays and trays of them for families who have got addicted, and the most recent comment on them was "OMG those brownies were better than orgasms!" so you better try them and see for yourself!

The recipe is the Hummingbird brownie recipe just with dollops of mascapone and raspberries stuck on the top, kind of makes a cheesecake effect and tastes kind of amazing.

Makes 12

200g Dark chocolate roughly chopped
175g Unsalted butter cut into small pieces
325g Caster sugar
130g Plain flour
3 Eggs
a few tablespoons mascapone 
1 punnet of raspberries

Preheat the oven to 170˚C. Melt the chocolate and butter together in a big heatproof bowl over boiling water, making sure the bowl isn't touching the water.When all melted take off the heat and stir in the sugar and then the flour, then the eggs one at a time until smooth. Pour into a baking tray lined with baking parchment, dollops on bits of mascapone and stick the raspberries on and bake in the oven for 30 mins. They should have a slightly flaky top layer and be soft all the way through. I let them cool and then put them in the fridge as then they are easier to slice and go more fudgey and then ooooh aaahhh!


  1. WOOOW Mascapone and raspberry brownies!!! So yummy!!! Will do this for my birthday!

  2. Wow, this looks incredible, Flossie! Can't wait to try it. What a lovely person you seem to be: just so HAPPY, so upbeat, SO much fun! The minute I popped onto your site for the first time, I felt uplifted by your charming picture at the top. And I also love the simplicity of your blog (as well as your recipes, of course). So nice to have discovered you; I will be back often (though I usually don't comment). :-D

    BTW, you wrote that you do freelance work internationally, but you didn't say what type...or at least, I didn't see it. May I ask what type of freelance work you do? Just curious. Sounds like you lead an interesting life!

    Anyway, thanks for the great recipe(s)!

    1. Cheryl, thanks so much for your comment, it's so awesome to hear such a positive responce from a reader :) !! Super happy that you like the recipes. Yes I do freelance work, mainly in the summer when I travel and cook for families or groups of people on holiday, and a new project in the pipeline for this summer is to start running some healthy, sporty, fun retreats for girls in France.
