Nadiya brownies

Brownies are one of the easiest cakes to master, and they're always the favourite at any gathering. These Raspberry Jam Puddle Brownies from Nadiya's Kitchen deliver on both fronts. She describes them as "a standard brownie with a crisp top, but with the addition of pools of raspberry jam dotted around to make for gooey chocolate gorgeousness with surprising bursts of tangy fruit." We'll eat to that!
