Its Bank Holiday Monday (our August Bank Holiday) which I think is to celebrate the last of the summer, but it seems more like we should be celebrating the beginning of autumn. Its getting pretty chilly.
Brette chose this week’s recipe as the person who should have picked didn’t get in touch with Brette (naughty, naughty!). If you would like to join Martha Mondays head on over to Martha & Me and get in touch with Brette, it really is good fun seeing how everyone gets on with the recipes.
This recipe required applesauce and after researching this a bit on the internet as we don’t use applesauce that often over here, I made this with two cooking apples and a little water and a squeeze of lemon juice. I was tempted to add sugar but I was pleased that I didn’t as a cup full of brown sugar was added to the brownie mixture. The applesauce is then mixed in with melted chocolate and butter and then the dry ingredients are added.
I am sitting at the computer now with chocolate covered fingers and a chocolate covered mouth. The fact that the brownie is still warm makes it even more appealing, but the light taste of applesauce makes this heavenly. This is a wonderful recipe which I am sure my work colleagues will enjoy as much as me tomorrow.
Thanks for a wonderful pick Brette, this is a keeper!
