This turned out to be more 'cake like' than bar cookie. The cake was moist, flavourful, and not as sweet as I'd thought it might be. We definitely preferred it without icing. I did have a couple issues: There was no mention of greasing the pan, but did anyway. Not sure if it made a difference, but figured it couldn't hurt. After baking for the posted 20 minutes, it was still quite pale, and jiggly. I baked it for an additional 10 minutes. At this point it was nicely browned and puffed. Loved the smell with all those spices. As it cooled, you could see the center sinking, and when cut, it hadn't fully baked. (Maybe another 10 - 15 minutes, but I'd think it would be over brown at that point and possibly dry.) No big deal, as we ate the fully baked areas and enjoyed it with a cup of tea. Many thanks for sharing your recipe Alvina. I only wish it had worked out better for me. Made for Fall PAC 2011.
