Good Morning, Good Morning! I hope you have all had a wonderful week. Its Friday- YEEEEES!!!!! Tomorrow is Saturday (just incase you have trouble grasping the days of the week like I sometimes do!) which means it is a French Market excursion to get one of Als Deli’s AMAZING donuts.
Miss I has been out for the count most of this week with her very first cold and has not been her usual happy self. Over the course of the last couple of days, I have learnt that a small human can produce A LOT of snot- this should not be possible! Thankfully she’s the end of hers while Nick and I are at the start of ours. Just in time for the weekend.. boo!
When I woke the little miss up after her nap yesterday, she asked if we could bake something as it had been a while- be still my beating heart! Not having much energy and a load of apples, we both agreed that this would be a delicious option. Not only is it super easy but it is also a perfect autumn soul warmer.
The combination of the apples and cinnamon just make you feel all good inside even though it’s chilly out. Team this up with some ice cream or custard and you’ll be in heaven. The apples do give it a bit of a soggy bum so it is best eaten on the day or night of making!
What you’ll need
-125g butter, melted
– 200g caster sugar
– 1 egg
– 3 red apples, peeled, cored and sliced into thin bits
– 160g standard flour
– 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, less if you don’t like it as much as we do!
– 1/4 tsp salt
– 1 tsp baking powder
– 1 tsp baking soda
– icing sugar for dusting
Optional extras- walnuts and/or white chocolate chips
What to do
– Preheat the oven to 170 (150 fan force) and grease and line a square baking tin with baking paper.. or shove it in there like I do- Ain’t nobody got time to perfectly line a tin.
– In a bowl mix together the melted butter, sugar and egg until fluffy. Add in the chopped apples and mix em’ all up.
– Add in the flour, salt, baking powder and soda as well as the cinnamon. Mix it all up until it is well combined.
– Pop into the brownie tin and into the oven it goes for around 40 minutes or until a skewer in the middle comes out clean.
– Let it sit in the for a few before transferring to a wire rack. Once cool, dust with icing sugar, grab a cup of tea, a slice of brownie and sit down to relax for five. You deserve it!
