My friend and neighbor moved her family up north this week. It was really sad to see them go! They moved in across the street shortly after I moved over so we’ve known each other for many years!
When I made the chocolate orange brownies at Christmas time I had shared them with said neighbors and so she requested them again before she left!! I used a different recipe as my base for these ones. They are based off a recipe from Marian Keyes Saved by Cake.
These are more of a fudge type brownie then they are a cake/bar type. Make sure you note the 3-hour cooling period if you try to cut them sooner you will end up with a big mess!! These are still super yummy just a different consistency! Enjoy!!
Ultimate Chocolate Orange Brownie225g milk or dark chocolate orange (Terry’s)
225g butter (unsalted)
2 egg yolks
200g light brown sugar
170g plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
chopped up chocolate
gently melt the butter and chocolate together. Chocolate oranges are 175g (I think?) so you will have some left over I chopped these up to mix in at the end.
Beat eggs, egg yolks, and sugar together until they start to look a bit like caramel.
pour in the melted chocolate and butter and mix together do not over mix
sieve in the flour, baking powder, and salt and fold in.
add your chopped chocolate orange or some chocolate chips
pour into you prepared tin and bake for 20 minutes, yes that’s right these will be gooey!
cool on a rack for 3 hours or more I cooled mine on the rack for about 30 minutes or so and put them in the fridge for the rest of the 3 hours, if you cut them too soon they will leak everywhere!
