Chocolate berry slice

45 minutes (15 minutes)
Serves 18 squares
  • Canola oil spray
  • 3 eggs
  • 75ml sunflower oil
  • 200ml buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 220g self raising flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 250g fresh or frozen raspberries, strawberries or blueberries (if using frozen make sure they are unthawed)
  • 250g berries extra to serve
  • Reduced fat yoghurt to serve
  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (150°C fan-forced) and lightly spray a 20 x 25cm brownie tin with oil.
  2. Using a hand-held beater, beat together the eggs, oil, buttermilk and sugar in a mixing bowl until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl sift the flour, cocoa powder and bicarbonate of soda. Fold into the egg mixture then carefully add 250g of the raspberries and fold to combine.
