Reviews for Glazed Apple-Maple Blondies
Sort By :
"I'm a maple fan, and I thought these were very good - but very, very sweet. I found myself eating handfuls of potato chips to counteract the sweetness. I'm saving the recipe, but am not 100% sure I'll make it again."
"This didn't work for me but I'm willing to try again because I think they might taste great. I did use oat flour. That did not work at all. It was a sticky mess. I couldn't serve in anything but a glob. They didn't cut in to bars. I'll try again with regular flour, less glaze, less sugar, and wait until the batter is much cooler before adding the glaze."
"This was way too sweet! IF I tried it again, I would eliminate about 1/2 cup brown sugar and all the maple syrup in the batter. I think just the maple glaze would give it enough maple flavor. Also, it definitely needs the full 30 minutes cooking time if following the recipe exactly."
"Not what I expected from looking at the picture. I thought they would be more like bars but instead they were "pancakes" soaked in maple syrup. They were very sweet. It wasn't bad but it's not something I would seek out to make again."
"I would rate this recipe as a 5* recipe! I tried this recipe 10/18/14 and found it to be very good! I admit that I had made adjustments on this recipe when I tried it! Thank you for sharing this recipe! I baked these bars for 30 minutes. delowenstein(I have tried to list the other adjustments each time, but I can't seem to get any farther than what I reviewed here!)"
