Ingredients

Brownies

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure orange extract
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest

Orange Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1 (1-pound) box confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

Directions

Orange Brownies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13 by 9 by 2-inch pan.

Stir 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. Pour batter into greased pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until light golden brown and set. Remove from oven, allow to cool, and then pierce entire cake with a fork.

Orange Cream Cheese Frosting

In a large mixing bowl, whip the butter and cream cheese together with a hand-held electric mixer. Gradually beat in the confectioners’ sugar until it is all combined and smooth. Beat in the orange zest and juice. Spread the Orange Cream Cheese Frosting over completely cooled brownies. Cut into squares.
