My lovely friend Iain Watters from The Great British Bake Off 2014 has shared one of his favourite recipes on Food with Chetna. These super rich and gooey Chocolate Brownies with fresh raspberries running through them and a hint of lime are an absolute must try for every baker!

250g unsalted butter, softened and cubed
300g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
250g light brown sugar
3 large eggs
110g plain flour
zest of 2 limes
200g fresh raspberries

– Preheat the oven to 170°C / 160°C with a fan. Grease and line a baking tray 30x20cm.

– Place the butter and chocolate in a heat-proof bowl. Melt this over a pan of simmering water and stir to combine. 

– Place the sugar and eggs in a large bowl. Whisk until light and fluffy.

– Gradually add the melted butter and chocolate mixture while you continue to whisk.

– Sieve the flour into the mixture and whisk to combine.

– Add the lime zest and whisk to combine.

– Pour the mixture into the baking tray and spread to the edges. Scatter the raspberries on top.

– Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes.

– Leave the brownie to cool for 30 minutes.

Slice it into squares and serve!

  1. Nice to see Iain and Chetna together again! Looks easy and delicious. I’ve never seen a brownie with raw fruit but it all sounds like a great combo and with the lime zest. Nom nom.

  2. Love to see both of you together after the GBBO, and excellent job on the show! Iain love that you put lime zest in the brownies. I bet it does build on those great flavors. I’ll definitely try this! Best wishes to both of you!
