For this weeks TWD Karen of Something Sweet by Karen picked Applesauce Spice Bars on pages 117 and 118 from Baking From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.
This recipe is very similar to a popular Australian desert- sticky date pudding. If you replace apples with finely chopped dates then you end up with sticky date pud(ding). It was interesting to have a riff on an old favorite.
Matt was just sad I didn’t make custard to serve with it.
I loved pouring the molten caramel on top of the cake (poor thing didn’t know what was coming). I preferred some of the technique from Dories take on this than I have tried before. All in all a success.
Now go and check the TWD blogroll and see what others thought of the recipe.
