Chocolate Orange Brownies

mmmmmmmm, brownies. Yesterday it pretty much poured with rain all day long, and when the weather is horrible there’s nothing I enjoy more than a little bit of baking. Yesterday I was really in the mood for something rich and chocolately. I’d been reading Ravinder Boghal’s gorgeous book Cook in Boots and my eye was immediately drawn to her double chocolate orange brownie recipe. Just what I was looking for.

They didn’t disappoint! Studded with white chocolate chips (although not enough because I only had half the amount the recipe stated) they turned out rich and gooey, exactly how a brownie should be in my mind! I would take gooey over cakey brownie any day! Personally though, I thought the orange flavour was a little too subtle. It got me thinking I would try this recipe again but instead I would use more orange zest or maybe even an orange liquer to boost the orange flavour. But they were still very good. Perfect for chasing away rainy day blues 🙂

  1. Thanks! They are lovely, a recipe I'll definitely make again. Although I would definitely add more orange zest next time or maybe a drop of orange extract 🙂
