Replaced butter with oil to make these free-from and served warm pudding-esq very delicious and very welcome on a cold winter night and much better than shop bought gluten free

I have made these brownies before and they are very quickly becoming our favourite brownies! The rum soaked raisins are lush!

Eek! no oven temp on this! but I improvised and results were good, lighter than other brownies I’ve tried and I’d defo try again when the oven temp is known.

Absolutely lush recipe, I used a good glug of rum on the raisins and blitzed them with the peas, works well and tastes even better!

Wow, these are seriously scrummy! I’m amazed they contain Carlin peas and I can’t wait to get my guests guessing what’s in them. I didn’t have any raisins so substituted with dried cranberries soaked in sloe gin. I cooked them on 190c as no temp given.
