When I think of Autumn baking it usually has apples in, whether that’s a crumble or a pie or in this case blondies. This was the first time trying these after finding the recipe and oh my god they taste insanely good. So good, I thought I’d share the recipe so you can make these beauties too!
2 large apples
1 large egg
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 cup of light brown sugar
1/2 cup of caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg ( I didn’t have nutmeg so substituted with apple pie seasoning I found in Aldi!)
1 1/4 cups of plain flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
125g melted butter
Now lets bake!
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease your pan.
Chop your apples into small pieces and pour over the lemon juice, then mix until it’s all coated.
Mix both sugars, egg and vanilla extract together until smooth.
Pour in the melted butter gradually whisking as you go until mixture is smooth & pale.
Add in baking powder, spices and flour minus two tablespoons (which you need to put in with the apple and lemon juice mix, and toss.) Stir your blondie mixture.
Fold in the apple mixture to your blondie mixture.
Pour into your pan/tin and pop in the oven for around 25 minutes.
Pop in a skewer to test when it’s done – if it comes out clean its ready.
Leave to cool before taking out – I was a little impatient and most of them ended up crumbling as they were warm.
Cut up into squares and enjoy!
These are so delicious, and will definitely be a new favourite in our house, plus they had J’s seal of approval, he was gutted when they were all gone!
