Rich Chocolate Orange Brownies with an Tangy Orange Drizzle

I like brownies. Not love them, exactly, and they wouldn’t ever be my first choice for cake or dessert, but there is definitely something about their rich chocolaty-ness that is very satisfying! (Edited: I’ve come a long way since I originally wrote this post – brownies are now one of my favourite desserts!).

These chocolate orange brownies are delicately flavoured with orange and topped off with a tangy orange drizzle. Although you’d never know it, they have a little less sugar than a more traditional brownie. This gives them a slightly firmer consistency, but without losing any of the taste. Perfect!

Ingredients

    Brownie:
  • 170g (3/4 cup) butter
  • 90g (7/8 cup) cocoa
  • 100g (1/2 cup) brown sugar
  • 100g )1/2 cup) white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 105g (3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons) all-purpose (plain) flour
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon orange flavouring
  • Drizzle:
  • 70g (2/3 cup) icing (confectioners' sugar)
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

Directions

~ Prepare a brownie or cake tin. I used a 27cm x 27cm (10" x 10") baking dish, but the brownies were quite thin. If you want them thicker, use a slightly smaller pan and adjust your baking times accordingly. Pre-heat the oven to 175°C (350°F).

~ Melt the butter and then mix in the cocoa. Add both sugars until thoroughly combined.

~ Beat in the eggs and orange flavouring.

~ Sift the flour and fold in carefully.

~ Bake for around 20-25 minutes until ready (outsides should be firm, with the middle a little softer).

~ Leave to cool on a wire rack.

~ In the meantime, prepare the drizzle by sifting the icing sugar into a bowl and adding 1 tablespoon of the orange. Slowly add more until it reaches the required consistency. Drizzle over brownies. Enjoy!

  1. These look so good! I'm going to save them and play around with the recipe a bit to make them gluten free, otherwise I can't share them with my flat mate! Thanks for sharing the recipe xxx
  2. Oh my lord! They look AMAZING! I live orange flavoured foods and I'll definitely have to bookmark this to try out. I've been baking a lot more recently so this will be really fun to try out. It's awesome they have a slightly firmer texture, I think I'd like them more like that. Jordanne || Thelifeofaglasgowgirl.co.uk
    1. Brownies are fantastic to bake because they rarely go wrong (no horrible rise needed!). Hope you get round to trying them x
