I have made this twice now, the first time I made it according to Michelle's recipe and found it to be good, but it did not bake completely in the middle (even after baking close to an hour- edges were burning and middle was not set) and the bread rose up over the sides of the pan... so I made it again with some changes and it was excellent- here are my changes:
2 eggs instead of just 1 and baked it in a greased 9 x 13 pan for around 30 min- more manageable size "square" (not so high rising" and middle baked up completely.)
This recipe has some mysteries. One egg is listed in ingredients but in instruction it says eggs (plural) I used 1 and it was crumbly so maybe 2? Also this is a cookie recipe? It calls for a 8 inch sq. pan and baking time took 50 minutes instead of thirty. Maybe it was supposed to be a 9x 13 pan for cookie squares and not cake squares. Probably will not make again. Flavor is okay but needs whipped cream or frosting of some kind.
This was such a hit with my family! I had to substitute some things due to food allergies (used olive oil instead of butter, rice flour, sunflower seeds instead of walnuts). I also used 2 eggs and it made it just like a cake. I'm planning on making it for my son's birthday cake (since he's the one with all the food allergies). I've made it 3 times in the last 3 weeks and for different people- everyone raves about it and it's pretty healthy too!
I am not a fan of this recipe. It is missing something and it took more like an hour to cook. I would suggest using a 13X9 pan to cook it.
These are dense cookie bars. My house smells great when I bake them. I made the following changes: I used oil instead of butter, brown sugar instead of regular, replaced half the flour with whole wheat flour, used no eggs, no vanilla, no nuts, added 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and baking powder instead of baking soda. I baked them at 350 in a 9x13in pan for about 45 minutes.
This recipe is AMAZING! My daughter printed out the recipe and has made it about 7 times. The cake is moist, fluffy, and really good without raisins or walnuts and with chunky applesauce. YUM!
Thank you for the easy recipe. I baked this recipe yesterday. It was very easy to prepare, and easy to bake. Nice in smell, good texture, and smooth texture not dry at all. I like the idea of baking it with the apple sauce … just perfect. My housband who is Danish loved it and said that it reminded him of similar cake his mom used to make. I loved it as well despite my low carb diet; I couldn’t help but take 2 piece…. I will bake it again. Enjoy ! ! !
I read the reviews before I made this, so from the start I added an extra egg and baked for 30 mins. It turned out GREAT! I couldnt keep my daughter out of it before it even cooled! Thank you for the recipe and the tips!
