These are my hubby's favorite brownies.
I've been making them for years. The recipe is from Paula Dean.
They're super easy to make with a burst of fresh orange.
Believe me....they won't be around for long.
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons orange extract
2 teaspoons orange zest, divided
1 cup confectioner's sugar
2 tablespoons orange juice, fresh
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 13 x 9 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, stir together sugar, flour, and salt. Add butter, eggs, extract, and 1 teaspoon zest, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake for 30 minutes or until light golden brown and set. Remove from oven, and pierce cake all over with a fork.
In a small bowl, combine confectioners sugar, orange juice, and remaining 1 teaspoon zest until smooth. Pour over warm cake. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.
