Chocolate Clementine Brownie Cake

Chocolate Clementine Brownie Cake
I've just started to plan my Christmas menu's and while I was sorting through my mountains of files I came across this recipe that I made last year and never blogged. It makes an ideal alternative to Christmas pudding and can also be frozen so perfect for a make ahead dessert. Obviously you don't need Christmas as an excuse to make this....its good any time of the year.

Feel free to use orange zest instead of clementines and even a few drops of orange liqueur to make it extra luxurious.
