Recipe for Apple Brownies



 QUESTION: If you asked for a “love-apple” in early New England, what would you have asked for?

ANSWER: A tomato

I know you wouldn’t want to substitute a “love-apple” in the following recipe. I suspect, however, that the following recipe will result in a delicious treat. I can only suspect this because I have never tried making apple brownies. If you try making them, please, let me know if my suspicion on its deliciousiosity  is correct.

This recipe was saved from a church newsletter (probably in New England) to which it was submitted by Margaret Abbott in Peabody, Massachusetts.



1 stick melted margarine

2 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla

2 cups sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cinnamon

¼ tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking powder

2 cups flour

4 cups apples, diced

1 cup chopped walnuts


Mix margarine, eggs, sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl until creamy.

Sift together dry ingredients. Add to creamed mixture and stir until just combined.

Gently fold in apples and walnuts.


Grease and flour a 9 x 13 x 2 inch pan. Add apple mixture and bake at 350 deg. For 25-30 min. or until a toothpick comes out clean.


I wonder what would happen if you added a cup of chocolate chips?
