Chocolate + orange = pure joy!
Yes, I love this flavour combination… add in a bit of chew factor and I am in my happy place. If you share my love of chewy, chocolatey, orangey goodness, then this brownie recipe is going to be right up your street.
One word of warning, however, this recipe is dangerously quick and easy!
Note – this recipe uses orange extract. I use Nielsen-Massey orange extract, available in Sainsburys and Asda.
- 110g (4oz) butter
- 175g (6oz) caster sugar
- 50g (2oz) light soft brown sugar
- 35g (1.5oz) cocoa powder
- 50g (2oz) self-raising flour
- 2 eggs
- 1tsp orange extract
- zest of 1 orange
- 100g bar of white chocolate, chopped roughly into chunks
- a couple of handfuls of chocolate chips
Heat the oven to 170°C (fan oven) / 180°C (conventional oven) and line a brownie tin with greaseproof paper.
In a large heavy-based non-stick saucepan melt the butter, then add the two sugars and stir on low heat for 1 minute.
Remove pan from the heat and add in the eggs, flour, cocoa powder, orange extract and orange zest, and stir until all ingredients are combined.
Add chopped white chocolate and stir through.
Pour mixture in to the tin, sprinkle with chocolate chips, then put on the middle shelf of your oven for 15 – 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and leave in tin until completely cool, and then cut into little slabs of brownie heaven!
