These luscious chocolate brownies have a hidden treat inside. A layer of raspberry jam.

The combination of chocolate and raspberry is perfect and one that has been used often. Here the raspberry jam filling adds a tart/sweet fruity taste to the rich and creamy brownie recipe.

This recipe comes from a wonderful cookbook called Country Baking Cookbook: Recipes for Freshly Baked Goodies From Grandma’s Kitchen.
