Chocolate-Orange Brownies
Serves 9
    1/2      cup all-purpose flour
    2         tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
    1/4      teaspoon baking soda
    1/4      teaspoon salt
    4         ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
    2         tablespoons unsalted butter
    1/2      cup granulated sugar
    1/4      cup light brown sugar
    1/2      teaspoon orange extract
    2         eggs
               Nonstick cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. Melt chocolate and butter in the top of a double boiler, stirring constantly. When mixture is just melted, remove top pan. Using a wooden spoon, stir in sugar, brown sugar and orange extract. Add eggs; mix until sugar is dissolved and mixture is very smooth. Combine chocolate and flour mixture; mix until smooth.
Lightly spray the sides and bottom of a nonstick 8-by-8-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pour in the batter, spreading evenly. Cook for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean. Let cool completely in the pan and cut into 9 squares.
