Fresh Apple Brownies

Comment on this recipe

Using an electric hand or stand mixer works well for this recipe. If cinnamon ice cream is not available, vanilla ice cream sprinkled with cinnamon works well. This recipe freezes well. Double wrap to keep apples moist.

Ingredients

4 cups raw apples
2 cups sugar
1 cup unsalted butter or quality margarine
2 whole eggs
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Topping:
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash, peel and slice apples. Set aside. With a bit of lemon juice brush on apples to keep them from turning brown. Cream sugar and margarine in large mixing bowl until smooth. Beat eggs into creamed mixture. Sift flour, soda and cinnamon; add to mixture. Stir in the sliced apples by hand; will be a stiff mixture. Pour mixture into greased jelly-roll pan. In separate bowl, mix brown sugar, slightly cool butter, cinnamon and nuts; crumble mixture with your hands until all parts are incorporated together. Mixture will be crumbly. Sprinkle topping over batter in pan. Bake 20-30 minutes. Remove from oven, let rest 10 minutes, cut brownies, remove from pan. Cool on rack or serve warm with cinnamon ice cream.
