Serves 10 

200g chopped butter  
200g roughly chopped dark chocolate  
Zest of 1 orange  
4 large eggs  
350g caster sugar  
100g plain flour  
50g cocoa powder  
100g orange matchsticks/chocolate 

1. Heat the oven to 180C and line a 24 x 20cm brownie tin with baking parchment. 

2. Place the butter, dark chocolate and orange zest in a non-stick saucepan and melt over a medium heat, stirring every so often until smooth. Be careful not to overheat. 

3. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and sugar together with an electric whisk until pale in colour, has doubled in volume and leaves a trail when the beaters are lifted. 

4. Gently stir the egg mixture into the cooled chocolate mixture. 

5. Sift the flour and cocoa in to the bowl, stir in with a metal spoon, then add the orange chocolate. Stir again. 

6. Pour the mixture in to the baking tin and bake for 35-40 minutes. 

7. Cool in the tin, then cut in to squares.
