Recipe Details


We absolutely adore brownies for their dense sweetness, simple preparation, and versatility. Here, we’re adding one of our favorite fruits to the mix, in the form of raspberry jam, which gets swirled into the chocolatey batter along with crunchy pecans. The results are colorful and totally irresistible sweet treats that’ll get snapped up before they’ve even had time to cool.

    Cooking Steps

    1. Prepare Ingredients

      Prepare Ingredients

      Preheat oven to 375°F. Using 1 teaspoon butter, grease inside of aluminum tin, reshaping if bent. Set aside.

    2. Melt Butter

      Melt Butter

      Place remaining butter in a large heatproof bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals until just melted. Alternatively, melt in a small pot over medium heat, then pour into a large heatproof bowl.

    3. Make Brownie Batter

      Make Brownie Batter

      In a medium bowl, whisk together baking powder, flour, cocoa powder, pecans, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Set aside. Add sugar to large bowl with melted butter, and whisk vigorously until mixture is pale and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Whisk in vanilla extract and 1 egg to combine. Add flour mixture to bowl with butter mixture, and stir to fully combine.

    4. Swirl Brownies

      Swirl Brownies

      Place prepared tin on a baking sheet, and pour brownie batter into tin. Dollop over small spoonfuls of raspberry jam. Using a knife or the handle of your spoon, swirl together jam and brownie batter to create a marbled pattern—grab an eager baker to help with the design.

    5. Bake Brownies

      Bake Brownies

      Transfer baking sheet to oven, and bake brownies until center is set, or a toothpick or sharp knife inserted in the middle comes out clean, 16-18 minutes. Use this time to get a head start on dishes, or kick back and enjoy the sweet smells filling up your kitchen.

    6. Plate Brownies

      Once baked, set raspberry swirl brownies aside to cool for a few minutes. Slice into squares, then carefully remove from tin and enjoy warm or at room temperature. Refrigerate any unclaimed brownies in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
