springtime treat

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350° with a rack in the upper third. Grease an 8″ x 8″ pan with butter, line with parchment paper, and grease and flour parchment paper.
Put chocolate and 4 Tbsp butter in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of 2″ simmering water. Melt, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool slightly.

In a small bowl, beat 2 eggs. Whisk eggs into a chocolate mixture. Add 3/4 cup sugar and beat until combined. Add 1/2 cup flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir well. Stir in 1 tsp vanilla. Spread batter in prepared pan.

For the cream cheese layer: In a medium bowl, stir together cream cheese and the remaining 2 tbsp butter until smooth and thoroughly combined. Add the remaining 2 tbsp sugar, remaining egg, and jam and mix well. Stir in the remaining 1 tbsp flour and the remaining 1/2 tsp vanilla. Dollop mixture onto batter in pan. Use a butter knife to swirl cream cheese mixture into brownies. Press fresh raspberries into the top.

Bake until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out with only a few moist crumbs, 35-40 minutes (check after 30 minutes). Let cool completely before slicing and serving.

The brownies will keep, wrapped individually, and stored in the refrigerator, up to 4 days.
