  • 2
    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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 3
    Sprinkle chopped nuts over frosted bars.
  • tip 4
    For a more cakelike bar, use 3 eggs and 1/3 cup water.
