I am on a brownie kick, obviously 😉 Actually I made these to take to new parents who are also good friends of ours. I wanted to take them a meal and something sweet. This recipe is from the bakery I worked at in high school, Baker’s Peak. I had never had apple brownies before that and have not seen them anywhere else. Even though they don’t have chocolate they are one of my favorite deserts. The apples make the brownies nice and moist. You could use any type of apple you want, I tend to use gala because that is what we usually buy to eat.
2/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups packed light brown sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350F, grease a 9×13 pan
2. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt, set aside.
3. Cream butter and sugar.
4. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.
5. Add flour mixture and stir until mixed.
6. Stir in apples (by hand if you have used a mixer).
7. Spread mixture into a pan and bake for 30 minutes, rotating the pan half-way through baking time.
