Happy Labor Day, sweet friends! It’s the unofficial end of summer in my opinion and no more white pants in the South! Hahaha! Just kidding. I don’t think that “rule” really exists much anymore. What do you think? Should we still wear white pants after Labor Day? I will admit to changing from a white to brown purse today.
So, if you’re reading this (well maybe after you read this) and you are an apple dessert fan like me, drop what you are doing and go make these brownies! Like fo real!! Your family will thank you! And if you don’t have all the ingredients, go get them pronto! It reminds me of the warm, ooey-gooey cinnamon goodness of banana bread, but with apples. And I just think of apple everything in September! It’s really easy to make! I think the most time consuming part of it is just peeling and dicing the apples. Nothing to that though! And you probably have most all the ingredients on hand which makes it even better.
Apple Blonde Brownies
1 stick of unsalted butter (melted)
2 peeled and chopped apples
1 TBS lemon juice
1/2c brown sugar
1 beaten egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 1/4c flour
Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8×8 pan. (*NOTE: I double the recipe for a 9×13 pan.)
Toss apples in lemon juice. In separate bowl, mix sugars, egg and vanilla well. Add melted butter. Add baking powder, salt, spices and flour and mix well. Gently fold in apples. Bake 27-30 minutes. Allow to cool completely if you want to slice. Or you can just get a fork and dig in while they are hot and gooey like I prefer. And they may or may not be unbelievably delicious with your coffee the next morning. Ask me how I know!
Do you see those yummy apples peeking out!? Yea, you need those in your life!
