Baker's Tips

  • Lining your pan with parchment paper is super important. This guarantees your brownies will come out in tact.
  • When boiling water, boil more than ⅓ cup. If you walk away from the stove and your water has been boiling for a minute, some can evaporate. Better to add a little extra, so when you're actually pouring the boiling water over the chocolate you don't run out. I heat the water, then measure exactly ⅓ cup, then pour into my mixing bowl over the chocolate.
  • When measuring the water, make sure to use a measuring cup and not a liquid measuring cup as those can be inaccurate if you aren't looking at it straight on.
  • Once you pour in the hot water, you must work quickly as it immediately starts cooling. So don't leave your brownies at this stage. Once you add the hot water, you must mix immediately in order to melt the chocolate.
  • After mixing in all your ingredients, make sure to spread the brownie batter evenly into the pan. It will bake how it's spread, so if it's uneven on one side or corner, you'll notice it when they come out of the oven!
  • Make sure to store your brownies in an airtight container so they retain their freshness.

FAQ's

Can I use a mixer to make these?

Yes! While this recipe is incredibly easy, I don't even use a mixer, but you totally can! You can use a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or a hand mixer, whichever you prefer.

Can I make a larger batch?

Yes, if you want to double this recipe (just hit the 2x in the recipe card and it does all the math for you) and you can bake it in a 9×13-inch baking pan.

Can I use another fruit?

Yes, feel free to use strawberries, blackberries, or blueberries in place of the raspberries. These would all be delicious!

What can I use in place of ground vanilla bean?

If you don't have ground vanilla bean, use 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract in its place. But, I highly recommend getting ground vanilla bean as it really gives so much more depth of flavor to these brownies!

How should I store these?

These are best kept in an airtight container so they retain their soft and fudgy texture.
