  • 1 ⅓ cups (8oz/225g) bittersweet chocolate (chopped)
  • ¾ cups (6oz/170g) butter
  • 1 cups (8oz/225g) granulated sugar
  • cup (4oz/115g) dark brown sugar
  • 4 medium eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups (7 ½oz/213g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tablespoons dark unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 6-8 medium oranges
  1. To make the Brownies: Put the chocolate and butter in a large bowl and set it over a saucepan of simmering water or place in the microwave.

  2. Stir occasionally, until the chocolate and butter are completely melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool a little.

  3. Add the sugars and whisk until completely combined.

  4. Next, whisk in the eggs and vanilla.

  5. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, and salt over the chocolate mixture. Fold the flour mixture into the chocolate until just a bit of the flour mixture is visible. Set aside.

  6. To prepare your oranges: Carefully takes a seated knife and take out the center of the orange.

  7. Once you take a bit out you can go in with a spoon and scoop the rest out.

  8. Pour the batter into your orange 3/4 of the way. Place its lid on and wrap well in tin foil.

  9. Place directly on the grills on medium heat (350°F/180°C) and bake for roughly 35-45 minutes.

  10. Enjoy straight away with vanilla ice cream.
