Raisin Brownies Recipe


  • 2 Eggs
  • 85 gms Raisins
  • 45 gms Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 225 gms Castor Sugar
  • 55 gms Cocoa powder
  • 85 gms Chopped Walnuts
  • 115 gms Butter or Margarine


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Line the bottom and sides of an 8 inch square baking tin with grease-proof paper and grease the paper.
  2. Gently melt the butter or margarine in a small saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa powder.
  3. With an electric mixture, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla together until light. Add the cocoa mixture and stir to blend.
  4. Sift the flour over the mixture and gently fold in. Add the walnuts and raisins and scrape the mixture into the prepared tin.
  5. Bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes. Do not overbake. Leave in the tin to cool before cutting into 2 inches squares and removing.
  6. The brownies should be soft and moist.

Tip: If fruit pies boil over in the oven, shake some salt into the spill. This will cause the spills to burn to a crisp, then they can easily be removed with a spatula.
