🍴 Serving suggestions
I like to serve these flourless raspberry brownies just as they are, cut into large bars, and enjoyed with a glass of cold milk. I sometimes serve the brownies for pudding with a scoop of homemade honeycomb ice cream.
My eldest daughter often requests these brownies as her birthday 'cake', which suits me just fine, as I don't have to faff around with icing and decorating a cake!
Vary the fruit by adding blueberries or blackberries instead of raspberries. You could also use frozen raspberries instead fresh (there is no need to defrost them).
Dried fruit like cranberries or raisins could also be added in place of the fresh raspberries.
For added texture, a handful of chopped walnuts would make a lovely addition, as would white chocolate chips (about 50g would be about right).
The cooled, cut brownies can be stored in an airtight tin or container for up to 5 days. Alternatively they can be frozen for up to 3 months.
Brownies will cut into squares much more easily if they are completely cool. I usually try and leave them overnight in their tin, but at the bare minimum, they should be left to cool for 1 hour before slicing.
However, if you're serving the brownies as a warm pudding, they can be served straight out of the oven.
The key is not to overcook the brownies. Take them out of the oven when they just start to pull away from the sides of the tin but the middle is only just set. Once cooled they will firm up and can be sliced into squares.
