On Saturday I had my second Bars and Squares class, and this week we made two different bars recipes. We made Chewy Currant Bars and Pumpkin Bars! 😀
Now I will be honest… unlike last week, this week’s bars recipes were more like coffee cake than bars or squares. Still very yummy, but definitely more cake-like than bar-like.
Both recipes are great for the Fall season. They are yummy, spicy, and have that ‘comfort food’ feel. The Chewy Currant Bars were made with brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, dried currants, and coconut. They were then topped with an orange glaze, then a generous spoonful of Vanilla Anglaise. The Pumpkin Bars were made with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, raisins, chopped nuts and pumpkin. They were then topped with a Cream Cheese Frosting.
We also learned how to make Vanilla Anglaise, which we served poured over the Chewy Currant Bars. So delicious! 🙂
