For the barbecue we hosted on Tuesday, I made Birthday Cake Bars. It’s basically what happens when a sugar cookie bar and funfetti cake get married and have a baby. Pure sweet goodness. I really do like bar recipes because you just pour everything into a pan and bake it. Much easier than cookies!
Birthday Cake Bars
Recipe from Food Network
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup, plus more for sprinkling, rainbow sprinkles
1. Line a 9x13-inch baking dish with foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang on two sides; coat the foil with cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Melt butter in a saucepan; let cool slightly. Whisk in sugar, eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt. Fold in 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles.
3. Bake until the edges are set but the center is soft, about 25 minutes. Transfer to a rack and let cool completely in the pan.
4. Spread vanilla frosting over the cooled bars; top with more sprinkles.
My son had flag football practice last night so by the time we got home it was late. My husband wasn’t home so I just put some leftover Creamy Cole Slaw and Mexican Bean Salad in a bowl and called it a day.
Breakfast this morning:
I took the kids to school and went to Sculpt class. I ran errands, stopping at Luna Grill for my favorite Greek Salad.
Tonight we will be chilling at home watching the first regular season football game! Yes!
What football team are you cheering for this year?
