How to make stuffed chocolate orange brownies

Step 1: Make the orange filling

  1. Start by mixing the cornflour and water: Stir the cornflour and water until the mixture becomes a smooth paste. Set this aside for later.
  2. Secondly, heat the juice, zest, and sugar: Place the ingredients in a pan and use medium heat.
  3. After that, dissolve the sugar: Once the sugar has melted, allow the mixture to cook for another 3 minutes.
  4. Add the cornflour mixture: Now, whisk the mixture continuously to prevent lumps from forming.
  5. Thicken the filling: Continue to whisk the mixture over medium heat. The mixture will slowly get thicker. Once it’s thickened, let it cook for around 3-5 minutes.
  6. Pour in the condensed milk: Do this when the mixture has thickened and stir well to incorporate.
  7. Cool the filling: Turn off the heat and set the filling aside.
  8. Freeze the filling: Line a 13×9 baking pan with cling wrap, then pour the filling into it, spreading it evenly. Place the pan in the freezer until the filling is fully frozen. Once frozen, remove the baking dish from the freezer because we’ll need it for baking. Leave the filling in the freezer with the cling wrap.

 Preparing the brownie batter

  1. Combine the dry ingredients: In a large bowl, mix the self-raising flour, cocoa powder, caster sugar, and salt.
  2. Add the wet ingredients: Pour the condensed milk, melted chocolate, milk and oil into the bowl. Mix these until you have a smooth batter.
  3. Stir in the chocolate chunks: Chop the dark chocolate into small pieces and mix them into the batter.

Assemble and bake the stuffed chocolate orange brownies

  1. Preheat your oven: Turn it to 180°C (160°C fan) to preheat. While your oven is heating up, you can start assembling your brownies.
  2. Prepare the Pan: Line your baking pan with parchment paper. It will prevent the brownies from sticking, making them easier to remove.
  3. Assemble the brownies: Pour half of the brownie batter into the pan, spreading it out to ensure it covers the base evenly. Next, take your frozen orange filling out of the freezer and place it on the batter. Finally, pour the remaining batter over the filling. Make sure it’s spread out evenly and completely covers the filling.
  4. Bake the brownies: Bake for around 25-30 minutes. The exact cooking time can vary based on your oven.
  5. Check the brownies: Insert a skewer into the center of the brownies. If there’s a moist crumb on the skewer, the brownies are ready. If the batter is still wet, bake them longer and repeat the skewer test.
  6. Finally, let the brownies cool: Once done, remove the pan from the oven and let the brownies cool fully in the pan before slicing and enjoying.

Can a different type of sugar be used?

Yes, indeed, but we recommend caster sugar because of its fine texture. However, you can substitute it with other sugars. Consequently, the sugar you use may affect how your brownies turn out.

What can be used instead of self-raising flour in brownies?

Yes, certainly. If you don’t have self-raising flour, you can make your own by adding two teaspoons of baking powder for every 150g of all-purpose flour. In other words, it’s a simple process to create a suitable substitute for self-raising flour. Therefore, not having self-raising flour on hand shouldn’t stop you from baking these delicious brownies

Can a different type of milk of used in brownies?

Yes, Absolutely, feel free to use any milk in this recipe. However, be aware that this might alter the taste and texture of the brownies. Therefore, choose your milk substitute with care.

How to store stuffed chocolate orange brownies?

Initially, you can store these brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. Alternatively, you can also refrigerate them for approximately a week. Overall, they’re quite easy to store.

Can these brownies be made vegan?

Yes, swap the condensed milk with a vegan version. Also, make sure that the dark chocolate you’re using is vegan. As a result, these simple swaps can make these brownies vegan-friendly.
