Ingredients

100g butter or margarine

50g cocoa

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla essence

¼ cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)

Method

Pour the mixture into the prepared oven dish and bake at 180oC for 25 – 30 minutes until the brownie bounces back when gently pressed. Remove from the oven and cool in the tin.

Delicious served as a dessert with ice cream and extra raspberries.
