That never happened. Life happened and she was too busy getting ready to head to the coast to actually blog about it. To keep from violating the intent of stealing the thunder about her brownies, I went ahead and made a pan of them myself last night, so now I can brag about my brownies instead of her brownies...although I'll certainly give her credit for the recipe.
Yes, they are zucchini brownies, which means they are healthy, and made even healthier by the use of 1/2 cup of apple sauce in place of most of the vegetable oil(helps to use the wife's homemade apple sauce). They are dark, and rich, and moist(not pressing the moisture out the zucchini keeps them moist for days!). One could go as far to say they are THE perfect brownie....except for one little fact:
They aren't really brownies. The completed texture is much closer to a cake than a brownie. I'm not sure they would really hold up to being carried around in your hand at a party without falling apart...but, on a plate with a fork? Perfection, and the perfect use for that occasional rogue zucchini that hides under a leaf until it is too big to be used for anything other than grating.
Recipe: pre-heat oven to 350, prep a 9 X 13 pan( I prep my pan by rubbing butter into it, then dusting the whole surface with sugar).
2 Cups of AP Flour
1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
1 and 1/2 Cup Sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup apple sauce
2 table spoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups shredded zucchini
Mix all the dry goods up and mix the wet goods up, and toss them together in a mixer, then add
Enjoy, and thank me later.
