Flourless apple brownies with walnuts and cinnamon

The flourless version of brownies, with walnuts and cinnamon-laced apple bits. The chocolate is half dark and the spicy apples and nuts make them very rich-flavored. Their texture is super-moist and way closer to fudge than to regular cake (given the lack of flour), and I would gladly make them again over and over. The company enjoyed them a lot too ;).
If you're looking for another flourless chocolate cake, but maybe something a bit more festive and impressive (though equally easy to make), try this cake with choco-whiskey sauce. ;)
Recipe adapted from Roxana.

Last year: Muffins using only wholemeal flour (with raisins and chocolate).
Two years ago: Mimosa (cocktail).
Three years ago: Baby making and no cooking :).

Ingredients (for a 20 X 30 cm tray):

  • 80 g sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1-2 medium apples, diced

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line the baking tray with baking paper. Melt the butter and the chocolate together over a bain marie. Pour the resulting mass in a large mixing bowl. After the mixture cools off a bit, add the eggs and the sugar and mix well. Add the walnuts:
