It was Steve’s 33rd birthday last week, so I wanted to make some treats for him to take to work. I know he is 33 (and not 3), but I still like to send treats on his birthday! My mom was always sending treats to work with my dad, and so I guess it stuck with me…
Steve’s favorite are my mom’s homemade carrot bars with homemade cream cheese frosting. This recipe makes a lot of bars, so perfect for sending to an office.
4 eggs (beaten)
2 cups sugar
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. salt
2 t. baking soda
1.5 cups oil (I use 1 cup canola oil and 1/2 cup applesauce)
2 cups flour
3 jars baby food (carrots)
Mix all ingredients together in order. Bake in (2) 9x13 pans or 1 jelly roll pan. The picture above is in a large jelly roll pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Important: Cool completely before frosting.
Cream Cheese Frosting
2 1/3 cups powdered sugar
5 1/3 T. butter
4 oz. cream cheese
1/2 t. vanilla extract
Mix ingredients and frost bars.
Steve said the bars were gone in a matter of minutes! Happy 33rd, honey!
