Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Special occasions are made that much sweeter when you serve chewy, chocolatey brownies in a heavenly sauce of cooked raspberries. For a smoother coulis, strain the raspberries through a fine-mesh sieve to remove the tiny seeds.

INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  • To make brownies: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter or margarine and chocolate; take off of heat. Stir in sugar, eggs and vanilla; beat well. Mix in flour, salt and nuts, if desired.
  • In a greased 8x8 inch baking dish, pour brownie mix.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes or until toothpick in the center of brownies comes out somewhat clean.
  • To make Raspberry Couli: In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, cook raspberries for 5 to 8 minutes; turn down to medium.
  • In a small bowl, combine juice and cornstarch to make a paste; add to raspberries stirring constantly until thickened. Add rind and cool.
  • Pool couli on a dessert plate and place brownie portion on top of couli; serve.
