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.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
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
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.
