Rum And Raisin Brownies

Recipe by KitchenManiac

I go through cravings, and sometimes it is a craving for anything with rum and raisin. :) This is wonderful. I am constantly craving chocolate, and it combines the two cravings!!! From Donna Hay's Flavours Cookbook.

I followed this recipe very strictly. It yielded thick moist brownies that are very nice, but somehow I miss the walnuts and vanilla which I usually put in brownie batter. I did notice that there wasn't any salt, and so used ordinary salted butter. Thank you for the recipe. It was interesting to try something different. (But I guess I'm just set in my ways.)
