Just made these with a few minor changes. I used 3/4 cup butter instead of 1 cup and switched out 1/4 cup applesauce and I added more apples.I didn't have pecans, I used chopped walnuts instead. Next time I plan to use half cup butter with half cup of applesauce. Nonetheless, these are so wonderful. They smell and taste so fragrant because of the combination of apples and brown sugar. They are a perfect Fall dessert. I am thinking of giving them a thin layer of cream cheese frosting to add another layer of elegance. I think this is a great base recipe that anyone could make their own by adding extras such as cranberries, or any other dried fruit, maybe even golden raisins soaked in brandy.......mmmmm!
I made these for my book group. I had 2 requests for the recipe. I used macintosh apples. They're better the second day. The apple flavor mellowed out and they were even moister.
Very Good. I used mixture of Honey Crisp & Mutsu. Mine turened out more cake like than brownie like in texture.
Moist, tasty, and not overly sweet. A quick, easy fall treat sure to please kids and adults alike.
These were great! I made them for a meeting and everyone loved them. They are also awesome right from the fridge. A keeper.
This recipe is AWESOME! However, we substituted Golden Delicious instead of Granny Smith apples. Using Golden Delicious makes the brownies sweet, moist and unbelievably delicious.
These were good, but they didn't blow us away. We actually didn't think they were sweet, even with 2 cups of sugar. They reminded us of a breakfast bar more than dessert. Won't make these again.
add 1/4 tsp. cinnamon to the batter and frost with the frosting from the apple cream cheese bundt cake from this website. delicious.
