1 c. white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
Vanilla ice cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x9 inch baking pan. Mix the blood orange olive oil, sugar, and vanilla together in a medium bowl. Beat in the eggs.
Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.
Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. If using walnuts, stir them into the batter.
Spread the batter into your greased 9x9 pan. Bake brownies for 20 - 25 minutes, or until you see the brownies pull away from pan edges. Cool on a wire rack before cutting. For maximum enjoyment, serve with whipped cream or a side of vanilla ice cream drizzled with our Chocolate Dark Balsamic Vinegar!
