Orange Brownies

Brownies are best when they’re a bit crunchy on the outside, and gooey with rich chocolate flavor on the inside. It’s hard to top a good brownie, but I’ve found a way to make them even better. Add layers of orange flavor!

how good is that

Brownie
  1. 1 cup saffola oil
  2. 2 cups sugar
  3. 2 teaspoons vanilla
  4. 1 teaspoon grand marier
  5. 4 eggs
  6. zest of ½ orange
  7. ¾ cup cocoa powder
  8. ½ teaspoon salt
  9. ½ teaspoon baking powder
  10. ½ cup candied orange peel
Sauce
  1. 1 jar bitter orange marmalade
  2. 1 can mandarin orange wedges
Whipped Cream
  1. ½ cup heavy cream
  2. zest of ½ an orange
  3. dash of Grand Marnier to taste
  4. 1 tablespoon sugar
To make Brownies
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease and line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper.
  3. In a bowl, combine the oil, sugar, vanilla, Grand Marnier, and eggs; whisk to combine.
  4. In a second bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder.
  5. In batches add the dry mixture to the wet mixture.
  6. Add the orange zest and candied orange peel to the mix.
  7. Pour into prepared baking pan and bake for 40 minutes. I find that the brownies will sink in the middle when cooled, but the middle slices will be nice and gooey.
To make sauce
  1. Place marmalade and mandarin wedges in a sauce pan and heat over low heat.
To make whipped cream
  1. Place the cream in the bowl of an electric mixer, whisk until it starts to get soft peaks. Add the sugar and orange zest and continue to whisk until you get a nice firm but fluffy whipped cream, lastly splash in the grand marnier and whisk to combine.
To serve
  1. Slice the brownies into 12 squares. Place a brownie square on a plate, drizzle with the sauce and mandarin wedges, and top with a dollop of whipped cream.
  2. YUM!
