Beat the sugar and butter together until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time. Stir in the cooled melted chocolate and the orange liqueur.

Fold in the sifted flour and baking powder. Add the nuts, marzipan and orange rind.

Spoon the mixture into a greased and lined deep, square baking tin. Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 25 minutes. (The brownies should still be slightly moist, not dry.)

Cut into squares and decorate with orange rind soaked in orange liqueur. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
