Apple Brownies with Sugar Topping


1/2  Cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1  Cup sugar
1  Egg
2  medium apples, peeled and diced
2/3  Cup chopped pecans or nuts of your choice
1  Cup all-purpose flour
1  tsp. baking powder
1/2  tsp. salt
1  tsp. cinnamon


1/3  Cup sugar
1/3  Cup brown sugar
3  Tbsp. flour
1/4  tsp. cinnamon
3  Tbsp. butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 350° F.

Prepare your 9” x 9” baking dish by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray.

For the brownies, in a medium bowl, combine the butter and the sugar. Whisk for 3 minutes. Add the egg and whisk until it is fully incorporated.

Fold in the diced apples and the chopped nuts.

In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

Add the flour mixture to the apple mixture. Mix gently to combine.

This creates a very thick batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it around the pan with a spatula.

For the topping –  mix together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Add the melted butter and stir to combine.

The topping will have the consistency of sand. Distribute the topping evenly on top of the brownie batter.

Place the brownies in the oven and bake for 42 to 45 minutes.

Remove the brownies from the oven and allow them to rest for 30 minutes before cutting them into squares.



About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
