I was trying to figure out a way to use up these Valencia oranges I got in my Freshbox, and there we go.

1.5 c flour
5 Tbsp cocoa
2 c sugar
2 sticks butter (1 c)
4 eggs
zest & juice from 1 orange
splash of orange liqueur

Cream the sugar and cocoa with the butter, then add the eggs, one at a time, then orange juice and zest, and orange liqueur.

Add wet ingredient mix to flour. Add more liqueur to smooth out batter as needed.

Bake in a 9 x 13 pan for 30-40 minutes.

Yum!

They are pretty awesome--I just ate two of them! Make sure you like the flavour of whatever liqueur you use--it came through really strongly in mine (although obviously the alcohol cooks off). Maybe replace the liqueur with more orange juice if you really want them to be orangey.
