Rum & raisin fudgy brownies

Rum-soaked raisins add a delicious boozy dimension to these dense chocolate brownies. I’ve taken my all-time favourite brownie recipe and given them this fruity twist. Leave them out if you prefer a more classic profile. The chocolate ganache adds a glossy top which takes it to the next level.

I’ve added a pile of crushed chocolate eggs to make this a decadent Easter treat, but decorate however you like. You can choose to bake these in a standard 20cm x 20cm baking tin or a lined cast iron skillet. Make sure you don’t over bake them as a fudge centre is what brownies are all about.

The chocolate ganache will thicken as it cools and eventually will set. I used 70% chocolate that had sesame seeds in which is the reason you will see these specks in the image. This was a happy accident, but you could play around using flavoured chocolate.


  • ½ cup raisin
