Aunt Essie's Apple Brownies

Aunt Essie was my great aunt. Don't know why she called these 'brownies,' unless it's because they are cut into squares. They have been in my family for years; they are light; not too sweet and the perfect accompaniment for your morning coffee or afternoon tea.

I love how easy this recipe is. The aroma while it was baking took me back to when my Granny used to bake. The end result is a very tasty cake that is supremely moist and very flavorful. I would serve this any time of any day and it has now become a family favorite! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
