I can personally confirm that these bars are easy and tasty. I have made as posted, and have also substitued spice cake and used orange marmalade for the filling. Some other combos are chocolate cake mix and cherry or raspberry preserves, lemon cake with raspberry preserves and cherry chip cake with cherry preserves. Thank you for posting!
Thank you 1Steve, I enjoyed this so much (used apricot as it is our favorite). The baking time is right on...my oven runs a bit hot, so I was careful, but no problem this time. These were like Mom used to make, only better. Thanks for bringing it back!
I made these three times in one week using strawberry and raspberry. My whole family requested it and I had the biggest vote for them.
These were delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and used raspberry preserves. Hubby took them to work and everybody enjoyed. Thanks!
Very quick and so yummy! I made them last night with chocolate and sugar free raspberry jam! They look gorgeous and the house smells wonderful! Thanks for a great recipe! I will be making them again to try different variations :)
Very easy, quick and tasty! I used the butter (holidays) I used apricot preserves. Thanks for posting. Made for PARTY 09
These were great and easy to make. I followed one of the reviews and substituted applesauce for butter making it low fat as well. I did this with strawberry jam but will try it with other flavors soon. Thanks for a great recipe.
These are AWESOME! They taste just like my local Starbucks!
I have tried this recipe two times now...both times it doesn't turn out. The cake mix is raw! I tried using melted butter once and it all just clumped, so I used softened butter the next time..still very raw mix tasting. I think you are suppose to make the cake mix as the box indicates? Then use the batter and mix with the oats? If so, this recipe should be clarified. If not, then I don't know what I am doing wrong...
These ARE very good, and one of the easiest I've ever made. I've had this recipe, and made these for 6-7 years. Never fail!!
