Sour Cream Raspberry Brownies Recipe

To date I cannot resist a warm fudge brownie topped with vanilla ice cream and nuts...what a beauty, and so irrestible!! So I was happily surprised to find a variaiton to the traditional brownie recipe and make one with Sour Cream. I share with you my recipe of Raspberry Brownies, and the secret ingredient is Sour Cream. The latter imparts a moist and rich texture to the brownies and the raspberries give it the luscious taste in every bite that makes these beauties almost irrestible!

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and line the base and sides of a baking dish with baking paper. Sift the flours, soda-bicarb and cocoa powder into a large bowl. Whisk together the eggs, sugar, vanilla, oil and sour cream in a another bowl. Beat till you see soft peaks form in the mixture, then add in the flours and mix until smooth. Fold in the apple puree and raspberries.

Now spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a tooth-pick comes out clean when inserted in the centre. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Cut into squares and dust with icing sugar if desired.

Tip: You can use walnuts or pecans instead of raspberries as a variation. If you are short on time, just use the readymade brownie mixes like Betty Crocker available in the market.
