MasterChef Reece Hignell's Raspberry Fudge Brownie Recipe

MasterChef's Baking King Reece Hignell Shares His Scrumptious Raspberry Fudge Brownie Recipe

We've asked the eliminated contestants from MasterChef: Back to Win to share with us the dish that made them fall in love with cooking — because even world-class chefs had to start somewhere. And we've all got plenty of time — and the reality TV inspiration — to put our culinary skills to the test.

Reece Hignell says that this Raspberry Fudge Brownie recipe was one of the first baked goods he ever made. "I just learned how to make like a basic brownie, and this was it. You know when you have a go-to recipe? That was my first repetitive recipe that I made over and over again. I just thought it was nothing special."

But since Reece posted the recipe on Instagram a few weeks ago, he says the dish has gone "gangbusters", "like people tag me every day". He noted that it's the kind of recipe that people really connect to — one that "you can just put in the back of your pocket and pull out whenever you want a go-to recipe that's easy to make but super delicious and really perfect". Yum!
