Baking

Brown Sugar Pound Cake with Caramel Sauce - this cake was so moist that I could not get it all out of the pan.  No fear - as the recipe states, just put it back together and the delicious icing will cover up any flaws.  There are a total of 4 cups of sugar in these recipes though it is not sickeningly sweet.  Very good and lots of texture with the nuts and heath chips.  The sauce hardens up and is a great compliment to the cake.

Banana Bread Bars - banana bread meets delicious icing to become a bar.  Baked in a jelly roll pan the bars are not too thick.  Which is a good thing since the icing has four cups of sugar!  Make sure you cook the butter in the icing until you get the brown bits.  This gives it a great depth of flavor.

P.S.  All these "4 cups of sugar" recipes is why I am having to take a break from my sugar addiction and just say no!
