Molly's Apple Brownies

I got this recipe from a college friend who comes from an entire family of fantastic cooks!

These Apple Brownies are different than any other apple "cake" I've had. The tops were crunchy and crackly and the inside was moist and more apple than cake! Molly's Apple Brownies is the perfect recipe to use up those apples you picked!

(Hint: These brownies would be super, duper delicious served still warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!!)


MOLLY'S APPLE BROWNIES

1 cup melted butter (I used canola oil)
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
4 large apples, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup nuts (optional)
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon (the second time I made these, I also added 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg...I like cinnamon and nutmeg with apples!)

Beat all ingredients together. Pour into a greased/sprayed 9 x 13" pan. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Enjoy!

Recommend: YES

Need some other apple ideas?

Mmmm, try Krista's Fried Apples! She used any leftovers to top waffles for breakfast! YUM!

Mommy's Kitchen used her apples in Paula Deen's Iron Skillet Apple Crisp - and we all know a Paula recipe can't be bad!

And, of course, if you're still wondering what to do with those apples, I'm sure the man in your house wouldn't complain if you turned them into a pie!

I tried to make these but they came out more like cake than brownies. Any suggestions/tips?

A Cooking Bookworm said...

They do turn out more like a dense, moist cake over typical 'brownie' texture. If I have plenty of apples, they seem less cakey...but other than that, I think it's just the way the recipe is supposed to be!
