|I noticed after I took the brownies out of the oven that my oven mitt has apples on it!|
I love when cooking a complete dish can be done in one pot. This recipe sort of fibs that. Yes - the complete dish is made in one pot...
|Toffee sauce and sliced apples|
|Top with brownie mixture|
|Bake until golden brown.|
And two bowls to mix the brownies. One for the dry ingredients, one to beat the butter and sugar.
It's more of a 4 pot recipe but definitely worth the extra washing up! Even the husband liked it and he's not one for desserts. So a win, for sure!
Upside-Down Toffee Apple Brownies - adapted from Love Food One Pot Cookbook
Toffee Apple Topping
85 grams brown sugar
55 grams butter
1 apple, cored and thinly sliced
115 grams unsalted butter
15 grams brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
200 grams plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 apples, peeled and grated
1. Preheat over to 180° Celcius and grease a 9 inch square tin or use a sillicone baking tray.
2. To make the topping, melt the sugar and butter together in a pan on a gentle heat, stirring continuously until bubbling and a toffee-like consistency. Pour at the bottom of the prepared tin and arrange the apple slices on top and set aside.
3. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add the eggs, one a time, and beat.
4. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and spices into a bowl and then fold into the mixture. Stir in grated apples and then pour into prepared tin.
5. Bake in the oven on the middle rack for 35-40 minutes (30 minutes for a fan assisted oven) until set and a toothpick inserted comes out clean and top is golden. Cool for 10 minutes, turn out onto a plate and slice into squares.
Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of mixed spice instead of the cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.
Add in a handful of chopped nuts.
