RECIPE TIPS & FAQS
Make sure the eggs have been kept at room temperature before using and are not cold. The mixture will mix more evenly and you will get more volume. If you are ever wondering why your baked desserts look flat then this could be the reason.
When the raspberry brownies are super warm they may break apart easily. So I recommend allowing them to cool in the tin for at least 10 minutes and then on a wire rack for a further 15-20 minutes.
You can store in your fridge for 4-5 days or in your freezer for 3 months when stored correctly.
