  • 1 and 1/4 cups coarsely chopped macadamia nuts, reserving 1/4 cup
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • cup of unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 and teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh red raspberries
  • Butter, for greasing pan


Preheat oven to 350F Scatter the chopped macadamias on a cookie sheet and place in oven toast until lightly golden, about 7 minutes. When cool, chop and set aside.

Grease a 9x13x2-inch baking pan and line the bottom parchment paper. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and whisk together to blend.

Using an electric mixer at medium-high speed, beat brown sugar and butter in a large bowl until mixture is fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, and then add the vanilla extract. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture; mix only until just barely blended.

Mix in all but 1/4 cup of the chopped, toasted macadamias and then spread the batter evenly in prepared pan. Tap to remove any bubbles and press raspberries half way into the top. Sprinkle cup reserved macadamia nuts on top.

Bake batter until golden blonde, about 55-60 minutes. A knife inserted in the center should emerge clean. Cool completely before cutting into 16 squares.
