Orange and fig brownies (Brownie de higos y naranja)








I have to say  these brownies  could do just fine without the figs if someone does not have (although with dried figs must be super)
And the chocolate / orange mixture in itself is delicious, and although only a little orange grated to put over is amazing how the oranges brighten a photo.
what else? It is absolutely delicious !!

Adapted from Nouvelle daily



If you don't have figs you can use this as a base recipe and add other ingredients of your choice!






Ingredients

100 grams unsweetened chocolate chopped 
100 grams unsalted butter
150 grams sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanillla extract
1/4 teaspoon flacky sea salt
100 grams all prupose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup cocoa powder

4 small fresh figs (or dry) in pieces
1/2 cup orange juice
zest of 1 orange

Method

Preheat the oven at 180°c (350F)
Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over simmering water.
Once they have melted completely leave to cool for a while.
Add the sugar and whisk together well.
Add the eggs one at a time and whisk.
Throw in the orange juice,orange zest,vanilla extract and the salt.
Now add the flour, baking powder, and cocoa powder and gently fold it with a wooden spoon.
When all is mixed add the figs (if you will use)
Using a piece of baking paper, cover your baking tray amd grese with butter.
Pour the brownie mixture into the tray and place in the oven for about 25 minutes. Stick a knife in if it comes out clean, the brownies are ready.
You can accompany your brownies with ice cream or greek yogurt.

Brownie de higos y naranja













Pienso que estos brownies se pueden hacer con higos frescos o secos cortados en trozos. Igualmente son deliciosos porque el jugo de naranja le da un sabor especial al chocolate.

  6. Gloria, We both love the combination of orange flavor and chocolate. The figs would add another interesting dimension...and we've never cooked anything with figs in the recipe. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
