Chocolate, orange slice ready to eat

This dark chocolate slice has the delicate flavours of chocolate and orange, reminding me of Jaffas.

Lindt is very good however you could use another brand


It is perhaps a different version of the classic brownie, and is perfect for afternoon tea or as a dessert at any dinner party.

Serve it at room temperature or you can heat it slightly in the microwave to get the best of the fragrant Lindt Orange Chocolate taste.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Makes: 10 servings

Ingredients
150g Lindt Orange Intense Dark chocolate
135g unsalted butter
125g caster sugar
Zest of 1 large orange
4 eggs, separated
135g almond meal
35g plain flour
Pinch of salt
10ml Grand Marnier or orange flavouring
100g toasted almond slivers

Method
Preheat the oven to 170 or 150C for fan forced. Line a 14 cm square baking tray with baking paper.

Place butter, orange zest and sugar in an electric mixer, and combine until light and fluffy.

Mixing on high speed with electric mixer


Add the egg yolks one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

Gently melt the chocolate. I do this on low in the microwave, taking care not to overcook it.

This chocolate is indeed "Excellence"

Melt chocolate in microwave or on stove top


Add this melted chocolate to the butter mixture, scraping down the sides of the bowl to ensure there are no lumps.

Fold the almond meal and flour into the batter and mix in the Grand Marnier. The Grand Marnier is nicer than the orange flavouring, however if using the flavouring, just put about half a teaspoon in.

Hand mix this batter


In a clean, dry bowl, whip the egg whites with a pinch of salt to form peaks. Gently fold the egg whites into the cake batter before folding through the almond slivers.

Fold beaten egg whites gently into batter


Pour the batter into the prepared baking tray and smooth the top gently.

This is how it should look before baking


Bake in the heated oven for approximately 45 minutes or until a cake fork comes out clean. I prefer mine to be slightly under-cooked, so I only cook it about 40 minutes.

Cooked slice waiting to cool down in tin


Allow the slice to cool in the baking tray.

Once cooled, it can be topped with chocolate ganache, however I think this is not necessary as it is absolutely delicious as it is.

Cut into large squares and watch it disappear fast.

Yes I like this twist on the original, mainly because of the 'orange'...I looove orange chocolate and the nuts give it great texture as well..
