Here’s a tasty morsel I created!

Based on a so-called ‘brownie’ recipe, but really, it didn’t have any chocolate in it, so how could it be a brownie?

So here’s how they’re made.

  • 1/3 cup butter or margerine
  • 1 cup packed dark  brown sugar
  • 1 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup walnuts, broken into pieces (I like ’em chunky!)
  • 1 cup crimson raisins, minced in a food processor
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 175C (350F). Line an 18x24cm baking tray with baking paper.

Melt  butter & sugar together together over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Remove from heat. Beat in flour, baking soda and egg, then fold through nuts and raisins.  Spread evenly in pan. Bake around 30 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack, then turn out and slice into squares.
