Last week, my very talented friend K from Journey Kitchen wrote a post on her favorite brownies. While reading the recipe, there were a million thoughts running in my head on how it could be adapted with different ingredients.
You are bound to find yourself bookmarking recipes, scribbling them in your little notebook, putting it on a ‘must-bake’ list or just plain hoping to try it some day. But have you been inspired enough to give it a try on that very same day? And no am not talking about baking with a reason like planning dessert for a dinner party. I mean just baking for the love of it, without an inkling of who’s going to be the recipient of a big batch of brownies or cake that could feed half the neighborhood.
Well, this recipe is really like that, I had to give it a try. You may use a reason if you must: they are rich, gooey and luscious; everything a brownie should be.
My variation: I simply used a combination of strawberry lindt and dark chocolate (70% cocoa) and added a layer of blueberry preserves giving it a swirl effect so that you got a tiny blueberries in every other bite. I also reduced the sugar and butter a little.
The original recipe is from Hummingbird Bakery.
- 100 grams strawberry lindt
- 100 grams dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
- 150 grams butter
- 130 grams flour
- 275 grams superfine or castor sugar
- 3 eggs
- 4-5 tablespoons of blueberry preserves
- Preheat the oven to 170 C
- Grease and line a 33 x 23 x 5-cm baking tray.
- Chop both chocolate slabs roughly and combine
- Place the chocolate and butter over a double boiler on low heat until the mixture is smooth.
- In order to ensure there are no lumps, strain the mixture into another bowl
- Remove from heat and whisk in the sugar until well incorporated.
- Fold in the flour and mix until no traces of flour can be seen
- Whisk in the eggs and mix till the batter is thick and smooth.
- Pour half the mixture in the prepared baking tray and drop small amounts of the preserve. Using a toothpick give it a marbled effect
- Pour the rest of the batter evenly and bake for about 30 – 35 minutes.
- Let the brownies cool down completely before cutting into squares.

That’s right! You just have to take a leap and do it. Or you’ll never know!
what a nice twist on the traditional brownie!! fruit and brownie :D
Wow! Love the flavor profiles. Love the layers of fruit in the rich brownie base! Bookmarked!! I am doing very well. Hope you are, too!!
I would need two more lifetimes to bake and cook everything I have bookmarked! I think this is the first time I see fruit baked in brownies. They look divine :D
Now in a serious top-chef voice I say… “FIVE STARS”

Love the berries in this brownie! That slice look so tempting..Nom..nom..
Superb … a great combo
The impulsive baker does more wonders than a planned one (in my opinion only).
The brownies look luscious- no wonder- since they have blueberries in them.
Strawberry lindt- haven’t heard of one before.
this looks like such a fun combination- thanks for opening my mind up a bit. A novice baker I am
Strawberry & Blueberry Brownies? Not only do they sound delicious, but can rationalize that the are healthy cause they have fruit in them! Can’t wait to try making these!!
Even my favorite brownie is from a bakery. I have been thinking about it ever since I saw in K’s blog. Love this adapted recipe of yours with my fav berries.
This is the second post in a row I’ve read this evening on brownies and again I’ll say, be still my brownie loving heart. Love this combination of the strawberry lindt and blueberry perserves.
I went with my instinct and made these brownies right after i saw your post and boy o boy i don’t know how to thank you for this delicious recipe….the blueberries in ”every other bite” just made my day. :)
I love swirling jam through brownies like this! And we don’t get strawberry lindt here but I love using their other blended chocolates – orange, blueberry (fabulous) and mint. Now I need to make brownies with these…. love this recipe, love the whole thing! And yes, I do often bake just to bake and just to have goodies like these brownies around.
You rised to new levels of creativity. Fruit and brownies?! Brilliant!! Gorgeous contemporary food styling pics An!!
I have never used blueberry in brownies.. thanks for the idea…..
I’ve had that thought many, many times, but rarely go and make it ASAP! I’m always tempted by anything with the word tiramisu in it though…
Awesome flavors all going on here! You are bringing summer to my December!
These look beautiful! Love the flavors.
These sound so amazing! I love berries in desserts, and in a brownie would be extra delicious!
This looks amazing.
If we talk about brownie and fruits, I only try once, but with a blondie and raspberry, and it was a success, after that I didn’t try to mix something else. But this one sounds terrific and I can’t wait to try it.
Oh, I love the idea of a fruity brownie!! Great recipe!!
Someone necessarily help to make severely articles I might state. That is the first time I frequented your website page and to this point? I amazed with the analysis you made to create this particular post incredible. Magnificent process!
