By far, one of the most popular recipes on this site is my perfect blondies. Coming in a very close second is perfect brownies. Both of these recipes are made in a bread loaf pan to make just two servings. Not that I couldn’t answer a craving for brownies by eating an entire 9×13″ pan, but I know I shouldn’t. Two large squares of dense buttery sweetness is just the thing.
I had a 5-gallon bucket of apples in the basement for a few weeks before the idea of an apple blondie came to me. It seems, in the midWest, that apples in the fall are like zucchinis in the summer: everyone’s got ’em and everyone’s looking for a person to dump ’em on. I gladly accepted. So far, I made caramel apple cookie cups, several batches of apple butter (in the crock pot!), and these brownies.
