Today we are sharing one of my all time favorite desserts!
And not just because I get to use Posie’s left over baby food…
the truth is, anything with cream cheese frosting is going on the top of my list.
These bars are very moist with a yummy carrot/spice cake taste.
I think you’ll really enjoy them!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1+1/2 cup of sugar
1 (4.5 oz.) jar of applesauce (baby food)
1 (4.5 oz.) jar of carrots (baby food)
1 (4.5 oz.) jar of peaches (baby food)
1+1/4 cup of oil
2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of baking soda
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 (8 oz.) package of cream cheese (at room temperature)
1 stick of butter (at room temperature)
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 box of powdered sugar
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix together your eggs, sugar, baby food and oil. In a separate bowl, mix your flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Combine your flour mixture with your baby food mixture. Spread onto a lightly greased jelly roll pan (or cookie sheet). Bake for 20 minutes or until your toothpick comes out clean. Let your bars cool.
To make the icing, cream your cream cheese, butter and vanilla. On low, beat in your powdered sugar until fluffy and smooth. Spread over your cooled cake.
The only thing that’s left to do is enjoy!
