ORANGE BROWNIES


This is a recipe worth trying.When i make cakes for my home i always make a very thin

layer of icing,except for special times.You will see a thin layer in the picture .You could add

the normal amount of chocolate for the topping.I will be adding variations too in this

recipe.You could substitute 1/2 -1 cup of almond flour for a richer taste.

INGREDIENTS

200 gm of butter

2 cups flour

2 cups sugar

4 eggs

1/2 cup orange juice

rind of two oranges grated

4 eggs

1 tsp vanilla essence

a pinch of salt.

orange color (optional)

Melt the butter in a double boiler.Beat the eggs with the vanilla .Mix in the butter after it is

cool slightly and gradually add the rest of the ingredients one by one.Pour in to a greased

tray and bake in a preheated moderate oven (180 degrees) for 45 minutes.As this is a moist

cake,allow to cool for at least one hour before you ice or cut.
