I have mentioned time and time again that I’ve got a real sweet tooth so here I am with another indulgent recipe. This time it’s Nutella and orange brownies – they taste incredible but they are really sweet so if you want to reduce the sugar you can choose not to add the baking chocolate and also put in less Nutella.
You Will Need:
- 3/4 Cup Plain Flour
- 1 Cup Of Nutella
- 3 Teaspoons Of Orange Extract
- 2 Medium Eggs
- 1/2 Cup Of Light Brown Sugar
- 3/4 Cup Of Milk Baking Chocolate
- 1/3 Cup Of Unsalted Butter
- Pinch Of Salt
First preheat the oven at 180°C / 350°F then line a deep baking dish with grease proof paper.
Then place your butter in the bowl and beat with a spoon until smooth. Check you’ve got all the lumps out before adding your brown sugar and mixing them together.
Add the eggs and your orange extract whilst continually beating the mixture. I found that three teaspoons of orange extract was perfect – but you may adjust according to personal preference and how strongly flavoured the brand you’ve bought is.
Once everything is well mixed and there are no lumps add the chocolate spread. This is when it’s really going to start to look like brownie mixture. Also add the pinch of salt and mix once again, this recipe is a great arm workout!
Gently fold in your flour, before crushing your baking chocolate. Do this by taking the unopened packet of chocolate, a wooden chopping board and a rolling pin. Place the sealed chocolate on the chopping board and beat it with the rolling pin until it’s crushed -this makes it easier to add to the mixture, which is the next step.
Give everything one good final mix before pouring it into the baking dish you lined earlier, then pushing the mixture so it reaches all the sides and is smooth on top.
Place your brownies in the oven and bake for about thirty-five minutes. They should be slightly gooey in the centre but not so soft they can’t hold their shape.
Once cooked, remove from the oven and slice the brownies into squares. Then take them out the baking dish and leave on a wire rack to cool.
Serve with fresh slices of orange for maximum effect!
