Maple Brownies

"My daughter bought me some vintage cookbooks and I love looking through them for new and unusual recipes as well as treasured favorites. This recipe came from the Better Homes and Gardens Heritage Cookbook, printed in 1978. It's a wonderful book full of history and stories as well as great recipes! These delicious brownies are rich with the added flavor of maple syrup!"

    Most definitely great tasting brownies! And, I'm one of those who think that if you're gonna use maple syrup, you really want to use a quality, pure kind! I did opt out of the powdered sugar, but otherwise followed your recipe right on down! A wonderful change from what I usually make! Thanks for sharing the recipe! {Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe}

    My son really liked these brownies. He give this recipe 10 stars. I used only 1/2 cup of sugar. I used a good quality of maple syrup and the brownies have a big taste of maple syrup. It's not subtle. I omitted the walnuts. Thanks Loof :) Made for PRMR tag game

    This is one of the easiest brownie recipes I have made and it came out perfectly. I made this for a friend at his request and the only variation I made was to use 1 ounce of the dark unsweetened chocolate and an ounce of white chocolate. He said after sampling that there was not really a noticeable maple flavor. It your really wanting the maple flavor I would recommend adding some maple extract to boost it. That said they are 5 star all the way without it. Made for Photo Tag.

    The little guys(2 & 5) devoured them, my 13yo asked for another, and my husband said, "These are my favorite ever." I they are good! I used maple pancake syrup and though they smelled maple-y when baking, the maple flavor is kind of subtle. Thank you for a tasty treat! Reviewed for Photo Tag's Cookie Exchange.

    Instead of using any vanilla, I used a good quality maple flavoring, as it gave a much richer and more desirable maple taste, vanilla competes with the maple, family and friends preferred the batch without the vanilla, I did this as a blind taste test to get true opinions.
