Well, must say first off that I failed when making this recipe. To start off with I didn't have a 9x9 pan, so I used an 8x8. (That was mistake number one.) I didn't have brown sugar, so I used a cup of white. (That actually worked)I mixed it all as instructed and baked it. It came out looking great! (Apart from the fact that the cinnamon/sugar mixture on top just looked like raw cinnamon and sugar on top.)The middle sunk a little after cooling.So this is where my fail actually takes place. I envisioned a nice bubbly crust on top, kinda like you might see on a nice creme brule (sp?) Well not having a food grade blow torch I turn on the broiler and set the apple bars in. I stood there knowing it shouldn't take long. After a few minutes I open the oven to find FLAMES!!! I snatch out the flaming apple goodness and blow it out FAST. I stand there staring at what looks like a charcoal briquet. My heart has sunk to my toes. I decide to try and pick off the scorched top and was happy to find it was just the cinnamon/sugar mixture that was ruined!! The rest just turned out to taste like a nice moist apple cake. It tasted really good! If not for my total failure it may have just tasted great! I think I will try this recipe again without catching it on fire.
