Brownies with Chocolate-coated Raisins

Ok guys, let's talk brownies again! The adorable Yvette van Boven had the idea of adding chocolate-coated raisins to a classic brownie batter. A master stroke! The result are wonderfully sticky, chocolaty, sweet, sweet, sweet melt-in-your mouth brownies... Seriously, if you ask me, these here can even take on my beloved cream cheese brownies. Another secret weapon for your brownie repertoire.

(from the beautiful "Home Made" by Yvette van Boven)

150g butter and some for greasing the tin
200g dark chocolate
2 eggs
150g sugar
1 sachet vanilla sugar or a tablespoon vanilla extract
200g flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 pinch of salt
200g chocolate-coated raisins

Preheat the oven to 170°C. Line a 18x23cm baking tin with baking parchment or grease well with butter.

Melt butter and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat. When melted, take away from the heat and let cool a little. In a bowl, beat sugar, vanilla and eggs with an electric hand mixer until pale and fluffy. Add the chocolate-butter-mixture und and mix until well combined. Sift in flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well. In the end, add the chocolate-coated raisins.

Pour your batter into the prepared tin and bake for about 25 minutes. If you insert a wooden skewer, there should not be any batter sticking to it. Let cool, then cut into squares.
