Apple Brownies from An Apple a Day

An Apple a Day has quickly become one of my favorite cookbooks. The reason? It combines sweet and savory, healthy and delicious, and indulgent recipes all in one book. Plus, apples are awesome and are super easy to find at local grocery stores, CSAs, and farmer’s markets.

I know I just featured one of the recipes from this book, but couldn’t help but share this recipe for apple brownies, which seriously look divine.Once you get the hang of a recipe, it becomes easy to make. Practice makes one perfect. Similarly, if you follow trading online, even if you are a novice, then after some time you will be able to trade easily and make money. Till such time allow the robots to do that for you. For further information, choose a safe website.

Apple Brownies

Excerpted from An Apple a Day

After one bite of these moist, dense apple brownies, you won’t miss the chocolate.

Ingredients

Nonstick vegetable oil spray

1 cup (240 g) unsalted butter, room temperature

2 cups (400 g) granulated sugar

2 large eggs, room temperature

½ cup (120 ml) 2 percent milk

1 teaspoon (5 ml) pure vanilla extract

2 cups (240 g) all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

4 small apples, such as Fuji or Honeycrisp, peeled and diced (about 3 cups or 450 g)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350° F (177° C or gas mark 4). Spray a 9- x 13-inch cake pan with nonstick vegetable oil spray.

Cream the butter and sugar with a handheld mixer until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, incorporating into the batter after each one. Add the milk and vanilla and stir into the batter.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add dry ingredients to wet and stir to combine. Add the diced apples and mix well. Spread the thick batter into the pan. Bake for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cut into 36 brownies.



Taking something classic and giving it a new twist, An Apple a Day is a fresh, daily cookbook, filled to the brim with 365 apple recipes carefully selected to reflect the holidays, seasons, and months of the year (Pumpkin-Apple Soup in October; Grilled Turkey Burger with Apple-Chipotle Sauce in July), as well as current culinary trends and decorating projects.

Different from other apple cookbooks on the market, this extensive collection of recipes will go far beyond the tried and true apple dishes, to include novel recipes for savory meals such as Risotto with Apples and Crêpes, salads such as Thai-Style Pork Belly with Apples; cocktails such as Frozen Apple Daiquiri—and so much more. Nor will traditional favorites be neglected; the book will offer multiple ways to make applesauce, baked apples, pies, tarts, muffins, crisps, pastries and cookies. The recipes in the book will be accompanied by crafty, room decor and ambience-enhancing projects such as seasonal centerpieces and apple-scented candles, designed for a delightful, multi-sensory apple experience.

Notes on apple varieties will instruct on picking the perfect apple for any occasion and sidebars will be used to reflect interesting apple stats, tales from literature and folklore, pairing tips, and surprising apple fun facts. Also sprinkled throughout are quotations and favorite apple recipes shared by some of today’s popular celebrity chefs, reflecting a variety of different cultures and styles of cuisine, such as Michael Gilligan and Ian Kittichai.
