When I first made them I was a bit skeptical because I have always had terrible orange flavored things before but after my first bite I was hooked, and when paired with the Orange Cream cheese frosting...it is taken clear out of the ball park!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These brownies brought back memories from my husbands childhood – he always enjoyed eating orange cupcakes as a kid (but in his "professional" opinion, these are much better!)

Ingredients

1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
2 c
granulated sugar
1 tsp
salt
1 c
butter, softened
4
eggs
2 tsp
pure orange extract
1 tsp
fresh grated orange zest

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13 by 9 by 2-inch pan.
2Stir together flour, granulated sugar, and salt in a bowl. Add butter, eggs, orange extract, and orange zest. Using a handheld electric mixer, beat until well blended.
3Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until light golden brown and set. Remove from oven, allow to cool and pierce entire cake with a fork.
4Spread the Orange Cream Cheese Frosting over completely cooled brownies. Cut into squares.
