Our gift to you…, well, yes we do realise that you have to make them yourself but believe us you will be glad that you did.
Brownies are great at any time, lets face it who doesn’t love a soft gooey melt in the mouth brownie? These mouth watering delights are from a recipe developed in our very own kitchen where they are made regularly to celebrate birthdays in the office. We all love ’em and there is always a bit of a challenge for the last one, you know a bit like in the film Notting Hill with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant, they go to his friends for dinner and there is a competition for the last brownie based on who has the best sob story.
Anyway, apologies for the distraction let get back to our brownies, they are a real chocolatey treat and a definite must have indulgence over the Christmas holidays, and to add to the festive spirit we have added some orange liqueur (ho ho, get the pun) to give them a bit of a kick.
Festive Chocolate Orange Brownies……… with a Kick!
7 tablespoons of Vegetable Oil
1 tablespoon of orange liqueur
Rind and juice of 1 orange
10 oz caster sugar
6oz plain flour
4 level teaspoons baking powder
3 oz cocoa
pinch of salt
4 oz good quality cooking dark chocolate
Baking tray greased and lined with greaseproof paper
Gas mark 4
180 degrees centigrade
Put the vegetable oil, eggs, orange liqueur, sugar, orange rind and orange juice into a bowl.
Prepare all the dry ingredients together into a second bowl.
Break the chocolate into pieces.
It will sink in the centre as it cools and it is this middle bit that is the gooeyest and the best, you know the bit we all fight over.
