Maple Walnut Brownies from KAF

Those of you who know me know I am a devotee of King Arthur Flour (KAF), so much so that friends and I took a 3+ hour road trip to Norwich, Vermont to spend half a day and a lot of money!  I get a daily email from KAF (and so do many others, I'm not that special!) which links to wonderful recipes.  One I am intent on making and haven't yet is the recipe for Maple Walnut Brownies.  They sound great, and even though I haven't yet messed up my kitchen with their preparation, I can assure you that any recipe from KAF is beyond good.  King Arthur Flour is a kitchen/baking lab as well as a retail resource, and reviewers' comments attest to just how good the recipes are. Here's KAF's recipe for Maple Walnut Brownies


"Chewy, moist, and with assertive-yet-smooth maple flavor, these brownies are a great change from chocolate."
1 1/4 cups (5 1/4 ounces) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
3/4 cup (5 5/8 ounces) brown sugar
1/3 cup (3 1/4 ounces) maple syrup
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon maple flavor
3/4 cup (3 ounces) chopped walnuts

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8" square pan.
Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder; set aside. Melt the butter and brown sugar together in the microwave or over a burner; remove from the heat and stir in the syrup. Allow the mixture to cool to lukewarm. Stir in the eggs one at a time, then the maple flavor. Stir in the dry ingredients, and finally the walnuts.

Pour into the prepared pan, and bake for 25 minutes, just until the edges pull away from the sides of the pan. Remove from the oven, and cool before cutting and glazing. Yield: sixteen 2" brownies.

Maple Glaze

1 cup (4 ounces) glazing sugar or confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 to 2 tablespoons milk or cream
