review: made these to give to mum for mothers day. LOVE the idea of the raspberries in it and the jam too but wasn't keen on this recipe. i have another similar recipe (that is supposed to be a slice, this was really nothing like brownies) which is a much nicer recipe and i think i might try it with the berries. even the girls weren't keen on it.
