    Vina's Note:

    The swirl of sweetened cream cheese running through these bars is a nice counter balance to the spicy carrot and pineapple flecked cake.

      The recipe did turn out very moist but bland--even the cream cheese filling was unremarkable. I omitted the pineapple but added equivalent applesauce and put the batters into Texas-muffin pans (for single serving portions) but my DH, who adores carrot cake anything, said he was not impressed. Maybe they need more sugar?

      These bars are super moist! Unfortunately, I was not able to swirl these as called for. I don't know what I did wrong, but when I put the topping on, it spread out to cover the top of the bars. I'm not too worried about it, because they are still delicious! Thnx for sharing your recipe, Vina. Made for My-3-Chefs 2009.
