TWD - Granola Cake
For my first Tuesday with Dorie recipe this month, I made the Granola Cake. Dorie describes it as a snack cake, and I think that is a good description. It reminds me of a big muesli bar or Anzac slice, as it contains granola (muesli).
Dorie said beware of using granola with hard chunks of dried fruit, but as that is all I had, I used it, and I think it turned out fine. I found this cake to be surprisingly moist, despite the thickness of the batter. I read Dorie's instruction to "jiggle the pan" to settle the batter, and thought "huh?" That batter was not budging without some persuasion with a spatula.
This cake would be great for school or work lunch boxes, as it packs a satisfying chewiness and is not at all fussy. However, as Dorie suggests, you can always jazz it up by putting a slice on a plate with a scoop of icecream!
