Tuesdays with Dorie: Applesauce Spice Bars

This week's TWD was picked by one of my favourite bloggers, Karen of Something Sweet by Karen. She chose Applesauce Spice Bars and I really loved the sound of them - fruity, spicy and with a caramel topping. Luckily I wasn't disappointed in the taste either.

I think I underbaked these slightly but it didn't do any harm other than make them really hard to cut. I think I also under-did the topping as it never really firmed up (which would make it absolutely delicious on vanilla icecream!).

The taste test ...

De-lic-ious. I wasn't expecting it to be so cakey but I guess these are cake bars rather than a slice which would tend to have a crunchier base. Next time I would chop up the raisins and add a bit more spice. I probably would still double the topping (as I did this time) but would only use half on the bars and save the other half for dessert. Definitely a winner!

Make sure you visit Karen's blog for the recipe and no doubt some gorgeous photos as well.


  1. These look great Susan. My glaze set hard, making them impossible to cut nicely.

  2. The topping would be perfect on ice cream. Great idea. Love the picture.

  3. Beautiful! I totally agree, the topping would be great on ice cream, or even off a spoon!

  4. yours look wonderful. i should've doubled the topping, i thought there was only *barely* enough. pouring some over ice cream sounds like a great idea. :)

  5. Those spice bars look wonderful. Love the pecans on top. Just the right touch.

  6. These look really good. Can't wait to try this recipe
