Glazed Apple Maple Blondies

glazedapplemapleblondies

We went camping this weekend as a family.  I sure love the mountains in Utah.  They are so peaceful and beautiful.   Fall is definitely in the air and the leaves were beautiful.  I love the changing colors in the leaves.   We had such a fun time together as a family.  It is nice to get away from the busyness of life and enjoy a little getaway without cell phone service.   My favorite part of camping is foil dinners and s’mores for dessert.  We had such an amazing time together!

With Fall comes baking.  I especially love to bake with apples.  When you add apple to a blondie it is out of this world!  The flavor combination in these blondies were so good.  The maple glaze on top was my favorite part!  It was like a caramel maple glaze and gave it such an awesome finishing touch.  And then the blondie was so moist and flavorful with apples baked right inside!  If you are looking for an incredible fall apple blondie, look no further!

  1. These look amazing. So. . .dumb question. . . but when you say “maple syrup” I suppose you mean pure maple syrup, as opposed to pancake syrup?

  2. The éclair cake tastes just like an éclair my group really raved about it can’t wait to try glazed apple maple brownies thank you Alyssa for the info on Dr David Jeremiah I follow him also GOD BLESS YOU

  3. Looks wonderful! Will definitely be making these beauties. One question: Are the amounts for salt and baking soda switched?

  4. I made these the other day and they are amazing!!! I didn’t have quite enough maple syrup when I made the topping, so I topped off my measuring cup with dark brown corn syrup and it turned out good…..you could actually taste the molasses also.

  5. Just made these! But made them wheat free, dairy free and cane sugar free. I used spelt flour,, nuttelex, rapadura sugar and (because I didn’t have any maple syrup) agave nectar. The verdict: my husband, 8yr old, 6yr old, 5 yr old and 2 1/2yr old absolute LOVE them!!! My 8yr old said, “Oh yum! I wish I could eat this forever!” :-))))))))

  6. Hi! Made these for a group and everyone loved them! Have a question…followed directions to the “T” and may blondies were very cakey instead of cookie. Any guesses why that could be? Also the maple topping was clear looking. Still great taste and a hit 🙂

    1. Mine were the same way…cake with clear glaze on top. But the taste was amazing so I just filed this recipe under “cakes” instead of “cookies.” 🙂

  7. Simply THE best apple cake I have ever had! I did double the frosting & throw in several big handfuls of toasted pecans… Delish!

  8. Super treat!! I used pancake syrup and only 1 loose cup brown sugar, still delicious! I also omitted the glaze (syrup is crazy expensive where I live) and I added 1/8t ginger to the batter to bring out the apple flavor. So good! Thank you for the idea!

  9. I’ve made these twice now and they don’t last long. They are AWESOME with vanilla or butter pecan ice cream. One thing I’ve noticed is that I’ve had to bake them LONGER…LIKE ALMOST 40 min instead of 25-30. I’m wondering if my oven is going out. They are cooking on the outside but center takes longer. They are still FREAKING AMAZING-just more gooey and more plate/fork friendly (or bowl n spoon 🙂

    LOVE YOUR BLOG ALYSSA…. 🙂

  10. I made these for a party we had a few weeks ago! They were a huge hit and reminded me of maple donuts! I agree they are more like “cake” than brownies, but, hey who cares??! Only one comment, I put them in a tupperware container and this created additional moisture and the few I had left were sticky, (but my vanilla ice-cream I topped them with did not care at all) Next time I might cut and place in a tin and then refrigerate.

    Thanks for sharing!

  11. Just made this recipe and we are enjoying the most delicious, moist and tasty apple blondies ever! Thank you for sharing the recipe, easy to make and comes out as pictured…

  12. Just to share my results. These were amazing but mine were more cake than a dense blondie. Which really doesn’t matter but you might want to be prepared to use a fork and plate. These are definitely going into my permanent recipe collection!!! Another success thanks to Alyssa!!!
