Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
I don't know why people are hating on this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly last night and it turned out to be a nice solution for an easy snack cake that comes together quickly. The golden raisins definitely give it more interest, and it would also be good with walnuts, if you can manage it. Next time I might add more cinnamon and cloves and also perhaps a teaspoon of orange juice in the glaze for a bit of zip. But the recipe is very nice, as is.
Something is really wrong with this recipe as written. I could not get the ingredients to incorporate; the texture was similar to playdoh. After consulting another recipe I decided it was missing eggs and added two. Now it is passable, but I wouldn't make again.
These were disappointing. I followed the directions exactly but the bars came out gummy and very thin.
