It seems I have finally found perfect brownie recipe that includes fruits: Raspberry Fudge Brownies.

To be precise, the recipe has found me !
My colleague from work brought raspberry chocolate cake to have with coffee and we all have fallen in love with it at first bite !
Since young lady knows with whom she is dealing, the recipe print out was already prepared for us to have and here is my version; instead of cake, I made brownies and changed some of the ingredients; otherwise it would be copy-paste one and I do not want to do the things that way.
I prefer Blue Ocean Strategy instead of Red one.

During the process, a picture of my grandmother appeared in my mind and the way she melted chocolate for cakes before microwave ovens were introduced: she would place chocolate or chocolate chips on a sheet of parchment paper and left in the oven to melt while preparing the rest of ingredients.
I do it the same way and never use microwave if I preheat the oven to bake any chocolate brownies.

Once melted, you simply spoon it into the bowl and combine with the rest of ingredients.
Since fudge brownies do not have that long history in our part of the world, here are some information I think may be useful for chocolate brownie beginners:

What makes a brownie fudgy?

Fudgy brownies have a higher fat-to-flour ratio than cakey ones. So, add more fat: in this case, butter, and chocolate. A cakey batch has more flour and relies on baking powder for leavening. The amount of sugar and eggs does not change whether you’re going fudgy or cakey.

 

Do you need baking powder in brownies?

While cookies and cakes typically rely on baking powder as leavening, brownies require less leavening and can be made with baking soda in place of baking powder. However, I use baking powder but half of the quantity I would use for normal cocoa powder cake .

 

What type of chocolate is best for brownies?

Semisweet chocolate or unsweetened cocoa are to include. You can use melted chocolate chips or chunks for your brownies if you like. Semisweet chocolate contains about 40 to 60 percent cocoa solids, which gives it good flavor balanced with a pleasant sweetness.
