Dutch Spice Bars With True Cinnamon Honey

The Dutch Spice Bars (or cake) are a popular dessert made in Holland. This is a quick and really easy recipe to make, as all of the batter is prepared in one bowl. Also, this is one of the very few moist cake-like bars made with NO EGGS. It's a an amazing recipe with the wonderful warm spice flavors of True Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, Clove and Cardamom. Don't skip the True Cinnamon Honey drizzle on top of each bar- it really makes them perfectly delicious.

Ingredients For The Bars:

1 2/3 cups flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp True Cinnamon

1/2 tsp each: Nutmeg, Ginger Powder, Clove Powder, Cardamom Powder

1 cup (light) brown sugar

1 cup milk

1/2 cup melted butter, cooled

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Ingredients & Directions For True Cinnamon Honey:

Combine the following in a small bowl:

1/4 cup honey

1 tsp True Cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions For The Bars:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and line a 9 x 9 inch pan with parchment paper, allowing the paper to overhang on all sides. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and spices. Make a well in the center of this mixture and add the milk and the butter. Mix it with a spoon until smooth. Spoon the combined mixture into the prepared pan. Smooth the top of the batter and then sprinkle the walnuts over the smoothed top. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Cool the bars in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove them from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack. Slice into bars and serve topped with a drizzle of the True Cinnamon Honey.
