    Sydney Mike's Note:

    Here on Zaar there are a couple of recipes somewhat like this one, but there are differences, & the Great Pumpkin is tellin' Charlie Brown that this one is pretty darn good! Preparation time does not include time needed for unfrosted bars to cool completely.

      I made a third of the recipe using an 8x8 pan and cut the sugar in half. I agree with the other reviewers. it's sweet enough so no icing is really needed, and chopped nuts would really add well to this recipe. The texture is very cake like, not a 'bar' at all. All that said, this is a very nice and flavorful recipe. Thanks for sharing.

      I made half the recipe using only one egg and baked it in an 8x8 square pan. I expected these to be dense like brownies but they were a light and tender cake. I didn't frost them because they were sweet enough. Next time I might add chopped pecans or walnuts.
