Apple Brownies

Mmmmm.....it's apple season and my friend Darlene makes the best Apple Brownies, you MUST try them! She gave me the recipe a year or two ago and they're a favorite around here. They're oh-so-good, I even like them better than apple pie.

I whipped up half the batter in mini-loaf pans to give to my kids' teachers with a cute "apple note" attached.

Apple Brownies
Ingredients:
1 c. butter
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 C. flour
1 tsp. Baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
3 large or 4 small apples, peeled and diced
granulated sugar (for sprinkling on top after baking)
Caramel Ice Cream topping (optional)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Choose your pan size: either a 9 x 13 pan, two pie pans, or a pie pan and four mini-loaf pans. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and apples. Mix well. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with sugar.
When cool, drizzle with caramel sauce if desired.
May I have a mintue for a personal note? I miss you Darlene! She was my next door neighbor in Hershey and we had so much fun together!

Wow! This is something I would have never expected. They look so good and much better then chocolate brownies. The next time my kids beg for brownies I'll throw them a curve ball and make apple brownies :)

It looks so good... but why is it called apple brownies?
It looks like an apple pie though. :D

Mandy said...

Hi Louise, I just baked it in a pie pan because I like how it looks sliced in triangles.:) There's no crust, it's just an apple batter baked in a pan. Hope that helps!

Oh my... this would be GREAT for my neighbor. He's been mowing our lawn for months now, and I'd love to thank him properly!

I found your recipe and have become absolutely addicted to these. I have already made the recipe twice since Monday and I think I'm making them again today. These are awesome (even as brownies without chocolate)!

Jen said...

Hi Mandy, Just made two batches of these last night and they were fabulous. I made a bunch of small pans to give away to neighbors and teachers! Thanks again for the recipe.
