When my four children were growing up, this was a frequent birthday treat. Now, my grandchildren request it. (I am the grandmother of three and great-grandmother of one.) It also could be served at a tea or at a card party. -Phyllis Rank, Wapato, Washington

"I expected this bar to be like a blonde brownie, however the texture reminded me of a coffee cake. Not my favorite but it was easy and quick to make."
