TWD: Applesauce Spice Bars


Applesauce spice bars is a recipe chosen by Karen of Something Sweet for TWD this week. I made half a batch of the recipe using a 7-inch square cake pan. The pecans were replaced with walnuts and I also added an extra spoonful of rum.

I always prefer fruit-based pastries and I knew that I would like this cake when I read through the recipe. Well, it certainly did not disappoint. The cake is soft and moist, and filled with lots of chopped apples, raisins and nuts. I had a huge slice for lunch, and thereafter, I sneaked a few bites whenever I walked into the kitchen. Before I knew it, 3-quarter of the cake was gone! I better get my running shoes ready for tomorrow, as I need to work off the extra calories that I piled on today!

Head over to Karen's blog if you want to give the recipe a try! Don't forget to check out TWD blogroll too!
