Apple Butterscotch Brownies

This is a variation of my favourite go-to recipe when I need a dessert/treat in a hurry. I have made butterscotch brownies  (I think some people call them blondies, but I have known them as brownies all my life) so many times that I no longer need to look at the recipe.

After talking to my daughter last night, I decided to try making them with apples. She had just made an apple cake, and since she is 500 miles away, I can’t pop over for a bite.

I made the butterscotch brownie recipe, then added 2 cups finely chopped apple, 1/4 cup pecans, a teaspoon of cinnamon and a 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. I think I could have added an extra 1/4 cup of flour to make up for the moisture in the apples, but it worked out. I added about 5 minutes to the cooking time.

This came out moist and delicious. When I make it again, I think I will add 1/2 teaspoon of ground cardamon. It does not need icing, and would be nice served warm with vanilla ice cream.
