Certainly not "Gourmet" fare, but a really Q&E great "down-home" comfort dessert. Plus it's fun to play "guess the mystery ingredient". I have used either a confectioners sugar or a cream cheee frosting..both are good. Servings depend on how large you cut the bars
There were very few things my friends and I would eat from our high school cafeteria. This was one of the few. It was a small town, so someone could always get the recipe from someone. Hope you like them!
This is my mother's recipe from when we were kids, and the first recipe I prepared solo as a child. My mother's old cookbook still bears the traces of a cooking mishap. I had a little problem with the hot water and a metal bowl. Needless to say, don't pick up a metal bowl with boiling water in it -- it's HOT. Icing the cake while slightly warm is essential, the icing goes on much easier and forms a nice glaze. It's very moist cross between a bar and a cake.
