What could be better than chocolate and orange? The citrus flavours from Della Terra Honey Bell Orange Balsamic and Blood Orange Olive Oil pair perfectly with the dark chocolate.
- 1 stick (8 tbsps.) unsalted butter
- 4 tbsps + 1 tsp. Della Terra Blood Orange Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp fresh orange zest
- 6 oz. 60%+ dark chocolate, chopped
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 tbsps. Della Terra Honey Bell Balsamic
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
- 5 large eggs, whisked
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour
Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Using a teaspoon of the Della Terra Blood Orange Olive Oil, grease a 9 x 13" baking pan. Line the pan with a strip of parchment, cut to overhang the long sides of the pan.
In a large bowl set over a double boiler, slowly melt the butter with the dark chocolate. Stir constantly until completely melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the Della Terra Blood Orange Olive Oil, eggs, Della Terra Honey Bell Balsamic, orange zest and sugar. Mix until well combined. Whisk together the flour and cocoa powder and add to the wet ingredients. Fold until there are no visible dry spots.
Scrape the batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake on the center rack of the oven for approximately 30 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out with very moist crumbs adhering. Allow to cool in the pan for 15 minutes and then lift out using the parchment and cool completely before cutting.
