very good, tasted almost just like the applebees version. I didn't have maple extract, so i used a lot of extra maple syrup which seemed to make up for it. The brownies were a little dry but still delicious. I suggest maybe greasing the brownie pan also because they kind of stuck to the pan.
I made this and it is almost the same thing at Applebee's. If someone makes this I highly suggest to serve it with vanilla ice cream! There is a lil too much sauce, but this receipe is very good.
This is a pretty yummy recipe, but the first time I made it, it caved in and was a gooey mess... So the second time around, i didn't pack the brown sugar in the brownies, and it resulted in a much nicer brownie. Also, I think there is a mis-print for the sauce, it lists the maple syrup and butter under the brownies ingredients. The sauce is good, but very very rich and even after 2 pans of brownies being devoured in our home, there is still over half a batch of sauce left. so I reccommend cutting down the sauce recipe at least by half.
I made these for a party one night, and everyone loved them. Now I get asked to make them all the time. They do taste just like Applebee's Blonde Brownies. Thanks for the recipe! : )
These are really good, and we enjoyed them with ice cream. Will make again!
Dish definitely needs to be greased. Recipe makes way too much sauce. A half recipe would suffice. I thought the cream cheese sounded odd in it, and I was right - the sauce is nothing like the Applebee's sauce, so I wouldn't call this the Applebee's recipe by any means. The brownie part was moist and good.
The recipe didn't make sense to me...exactly...so I combined the first set of ingredients... then mixed the next set... then mixed them together and baked them... I will let you know how they turned out..... :) The brownies turned out very moist and tender this way...I added a caramel sauce that I made with brown sugar, butter, half and half and vanilla. The combination was obviously well received as they went very fast. :)
I made this recipe for 150 people for a church banquet. The dessert was a favorite for many especially the sauce. I did submit a correction on when the sauce ingredients begin. Sauce begins with the 1/2 c maple syrup and 1/4 butter. My daughter loves the sauce as a fruit dip!
I have made these brownies on SEVERAL occasions and they have been a HUGE hit! Everyone that has tasted them has loved them.
Wow, if the brownies taste just as good as the batter, these will be awesome! Thanks!!!
