“This was my Mom's recipe. Easy and quick to make. Apples and walnuts are packed into a cinnamon spiced blonde brownie. Always a hit when I bring it to parties. Very moist and great to make in the fall when apples are plentiful.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x9 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the melted butter, sugar, and egg until fluffy. Fold in the apples and walnuts. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Stir the flour mixture into the wet mixture until just blended. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

I won't worry about whether this is a "brownie" or not because these moist bars are SO delicious! I'm glad to have found this recipe, it's one I've been looking for after tasting them at a potluck a while back. My husband would eat the entire pan! I chopped the apples rather than sliced, they distribute through the batter better in smaller pieces. I don't melt the butter, Ijust cream it with the sugar and beat in the egg. Don't be scared if the batter is stiff and it seems like it is mostly apples, that's how it is supposed to be and it will turn out fine. Also, when you take them out of the oven, sprinkle cinnamon sugar generously over the top...HEAVENLY!

I have made this recipe several times and it is a sure hit! Just had a few suggestions/modifications as follows: add 1 t vanilla, 1/2 t nutmeg, cut the apples (granny smith) into chunks instead of slices. Also top the batter with 3 T. softened butter, 1/3 brown sugar and 1/2 t cinnamon mixed together until crumbly. For me, it seemed to take closer to an hour to bake it Vs the 35 minutes stated in the recipe. Baker Jim, this is a wonderful recipe and thanks for sharing it with us!

This recipe definitely has merit! I found several of the reviews helpful in preparation for trying out the brownies. I creamed the butter with the sugar and eggs, added 1 t. vanilla, cut the apples to 2 (really 1 1/2 because mine were large), diced the apples and added them last to mixture. I also used the topping of butter, br. sugar and cinnamon (spread the butter then sprinkler with sugar/cinnamon mixture) and baked for 45 minutes. They turned out pretty moist, but have a delicious flavor; by no means a flop! I think cutting the apples to 1 cup or so(diced) might be key in getting more of a bar/brownie consistency that can be held in hand. I will make these again, I'm sure.
