Apple Brownies

Can you believe it is Labor Day Weekend?  It’s a little sad to let go of summer, but at the same time I am anxious for fall and cooler weather.  {However, that does not mean I am ready for Christmas.  I was in Costco yesterday, and they had their Christmas out – really, in August?}

To get us all in the mood for fall, here’s a fun and simple Apple Brownie.  I have to admit the name “apple brownies” is what intrigued me about his recipe . . . maybe I was expecting chocolate?  It’s really a simple apple cake, but dispite the fact that there is no chocolate involved (blonde brownie), the flavor is wonderful and they are so moist and yummy.  You’ll love them!

Apple Brownies


1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 egg
3 medium apples peeled, cored and thinly sliced (about 5 cups)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350.   Grease a 9×9 inch baking dish.

In a large bowl, beat together the melted butter, sugar, and egg until fluffy.  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.  Fold in the apples and walnuts.  Spread the batter evenly in the prepared baking dish.

Bake 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.



Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream, or cool completely and cut to serve.
