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 :-).
Fudgy Apple Brownies
