Fudgy Apple Brownies
While I was figuring what to prepare for the second day for my Seasonal Fruits and Veggie series for BM and to club that with my on going chocolate series for choctoberfest, I realized I haven’t baked much with Apples recently . I love all kinds of fruits and Apple is one of my favourite as a quick on-the-go snack . I also like the occasional Apple tart or cakes but this time i decided to try out the Chocolate Apple Brownies. I have taken this recipe from here with some modifications.
This dish can be made with Green or Red apples but since it’s the season of crisp green apples I used them . Also the flavor of Green Apples is just right for this dish.
I had few worries if chocolate and Apple as combination would work as i wanted a balance of both the flavours , but one bite of the brownie and I could feel the sweetness of chocolate and the refreshing flavor of Apple.
I took half of these Brownies to my office and my colleagues were already taking second servings. I am not exaggerating but they were so moist and at the same time had the fudgier texture of brownie. Yum, my son is enjoying them with a hot cup of milk daily and I am loving it as he is eating green apples :-).
These Chocolate Apple Brownies are a perfect fall treat. They are so soft and moist. Finely grated apple gives a nice sweet and light flavor that balances the taste of dark chocolate.
- 150 gm Butter
- 80 gm Dark Chocolate
- 3 Medium eggs, At Room Temperature
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 2 Green Apples (1 Cup when finely grated) (I used green, one can use Red)
- 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
- 1 and 1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
- 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/8 tsp Salt
- 1/4 Cup Walnuts Crumbled
Preheat the oven to 180 C. Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with parchment paper or grease it lightly with butter.
Melt butter and chocolate in microwave, in short burst of 30 seconds, until melted. Alternatively one can melt in a heat proof bowl over simmering water. Allow to cool.
Sift the cocoa powder, flour and baking powder in a separate bowl.
In a separate bowl, Mix eggs and sugar with an electric mixer until creamy.
Add in finely grated apple and mix.
Add in the melted chocolate and butter. Add in Vanilla essence and Keep mixing. (The chocolate butter mixture should be cooled completely)
Add the sifted cocoa powder, flour and baking powder and slowly mix everything just until combined.
Add in the walnuts and mix with a spatula. (One can top it up with walnuts too, I added in the batter)
Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 35 minutes. Keep an eye after 25-30 minutes.
Let it cool down completely, cut into squares and enjoy with a cup of milk or coffee.
