Love carrot cake? Try a sweet cousin in bar form made with the help of a cake mix.
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ carrot cake mix
cup vegetable oil
cup chopped nuts
container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease and flour bottom and sides of 15x10x1-inch pan, or spray with baking spray with flour.
In large bowl, mix cake mix, oil, water and eggs with spoon. Stir in raisins and nuts. Spread evenly in pan with metal icing spatula or dinner knife.
Bake 20 to 24 minutes or until bars spring back when touched lightly in center. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Spread with frosting. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 6 rows. Store loosely covered.
Use orange juice instead of the water to give these bars a nice flavor boost.
Add a cinnamon design. Dip small cookie cutters into cinnamon, and press lightly into frosting.
Sprinkle chopped nuts over frosted bars.
For a more cakelike bar, use 3 eggs and 1/3 cup water.
