Magic Cake Bars for Easter

Print Post


For the record, Matt wanted me to take a picture of my hand over the cake and pretend it was the hand of our little niece or nephew helping in the kitchen. 1) We don’t have any nieces or nephews 2) No one wants to see my hands after twelve hour days in the kitchen and 3) Seriously? My hands aren’t THAT small.


This is one of those desserts that you can make last minute for Easter with minimal time in the kitchen, just enough time to get some help from your little ones (if you have any).  And even though it is super simple, this is one of the most addicting things I’ve made in a while.  Moist cake with a crispy crunchy topping.  What’s not to love?


Head over to Fox to get the recipe!


Disclaimer:  I love box mixes and pre-made cookie dough, especially when I am as busy as I have been over the last couple of months.  However, all of the baked goods that I sell on my website or provide for any type of catering service are made completely from scratch.

    These look so yummy and festive. I made cake base magic cake bars a week or so ago and they’ve turned into my fave dessert in recent memory!

      They worked out really well and I even got some snap crackle pop when I was making the cake:-)

    LOL. No, your hands are NOT that small. Neither are mine, but if you ever want me to pose with my hands poised above a baked good, I will certainly do so. Though I can’t promise that I won’t then dive headfirst into the baked good as I devour it. These especially.
