Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray two 8-inch cake pans with non stick cooking spray; set aside. For the brownies, Place the butter or margarine and chocolate in a bowl over simmering water and stir until melted. Remove from heat and whisk in remaining ingredients until blended. Spread into one of the cake pans and bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean; set aside to cool. For the blondies, combine the butter or margarine and sugar in a large bowl; beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla and orange extract, continuing to beat for one minute before adding the flour, baking powder and salt. After mixture is blended, spoon into prepared cake pan, tapping on surface to ensure air bubbles are removed. Bake for 15-20 minutes or toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow to cool before cutting each pan into 10 wedges. To make the glaze, add the confectioner's sugar, orange zest and orange juice, one teaspoon at a time to a bowl and whisk together until mixture's consistency becomes thin enough to drizzle. To serve, place one brownie wedge on individual serving plate and criss cross it with a blondie wedge. Drizzle the blondie with the orange glaze. Makes 10 servings.
