Nanaimo Bars Win!

I guess it wasn't much of a competition -- yummy, gooey, exotic-sounding Nanaomi bars vs. my mom's apple coffee bake. The deck was stacked pretty much in favor of the Nanaimo Bars and not surprisingly, Nanaimo Bars won. So they will be the next sweet treat I will try to bake (sorry, mom).

I'm gathering the ingredients and promise to report back as soon as I've done the deed.

Meanwhile, with so many holiday parties ahead, it's a good thing I've learned the basics of baking. Now I don't have to fret about what to bring to the upcoming festivities.

Then again, Nanaimo Bars don't exactly shout "Hanukkah!"

It's Me, Mom - I'm okay with the results of your survey. I'm sure you'll be looking for many more baking recipes and one of those times you'll think of your Mom and her Apple Coffee Cake. Dad loves it so it was the first cake that came to mind. As for Chanukah, how about trying potato latkes?..very traditional for this holiday.

Ooh! How exciting! Can't wait to hear how it goes...just don't blow up your kitchen with that explosive custard powder!
