These tender squares from Pam Mroz of Rochester, Minnesota have a sweet frosting and generous sprinkling of poppy seeds throughout. "The bars are a snap to whip up, plus they use ingredients I usually have on hand," she notes.

"I made 1/3 of the recipe into 6 cupcakes. Loved them!

Used the Stevia/sugar baking blend at the half-the-sugar-called-for level; use white-wheat flour; baked the cupcakes for 25 minutes; added just a drop of almond extract in the frosting.
The cupcake was not terribly sweet, but with the frosting they're quite wonderful!"
