    Very Good

    Tastes awesome. I found it too moist & crumbly to call it bars - more of a cake. Excellent and next time I will keep in the 13 x 9 pan, frost, and serve from there & eat like cake. Cut the oil by half and replaced the other half with unsweetened apple sauce to save fat and cals. Yum! - 11/1/08

    I would use a 13 by 9 inch baking pan. Sorry it took so long to answer.
