Choco-Orange Brownies

The first recipe contest I entered was years ago and was an original brownie contest.  My favorite flavor combination for chocolate is orange, so it seemed only sensible to work with those flavors.  This is the recipe that won 1st place:

In a large pan, over low heat, melt:
3/4 cup Butter
4 oz. Bittersweet Chocolate (Callebout or Ghiradelli are my favorites)

To melted mixture, add and stir well:
2 cups Sugar

Add one at a time, stirring after each addition:
4 Eggs, room temperature

Stir in:
1 tsp. Orange Extract
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 Tabl. Orange Zest

Sift and stir into above:
1  2/3 cup Cake Flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Salt

Spread batter in 9″ X 13″ pan.  Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.  Cool completely.  Dust with powdered sugar to serve.
