Applesauce Brownies

Elizabeth Lancaster


This brownie, was my late father's favorite! And I am my father's daughter, I too share the same LOVE for these brownies, they are so moist and ever so delicious.
My father and I would always take a middle slice, (we don't like edges on our cakes,brownies or any dessert for that matter) and it would drive my mother crazy, there would be this big hole in the middle of the pan. LOL. It's one of my favorite memories of my dad,racing to see who would get the 1st slice of that perfect moist brownie. I hope this Dish finds its way to your table top soon, Enjoy!!
