Cherry Limeade Bars

17 Jul

It’s hot lately and if I still drank soda, I’d go get me a Cherry Limeade from Sonic. If you’ve been around these parts before, you may have noticed that I love citrus, much more so than chocolate and cherry-lime is pretty much a win-win all around.  My favorite part of a Cherry Limeade lies at the bottom of the cup, eating the soda soaked lime and cherry, it’s like a reward for drinking all that soda, I like that.

I’ve been thinking of baking up a Cherry Limeade dessert for a few weeks now and a Google search turned up that Cherry Limeade cupcakes have been done and done and done! So I decided on some bars, it actually bakes up like a cake, so you could easily whip up some frosting for it and serve it like that, but I am not real big on baking cakes and such. I prefer portability and I like dessert that I can hold in my hand!

This recipe is reeeealllly simple and fuss-free. The Cherry pie filling is swirled through the lime batter straight outta the can. Some of it sinks to the bottom and leaves a nice, gooey layer of cherry goodness on the bottom of the bars. Yeah, and the contrast is pretty cool too!  Now, these guys are VERY gooey straight out of the oven, so they need a trip to the fridge (or freezer) before you serve them.

Without further ado, let me present to you, my recipe for Cherry Limeade bars…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHERRY LIMEADE BARS

Yield: 2 Dozen bars or 9 x 13 cake

2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 1/2 cups sugar

3 oz package lime gelatin

1/2 cup canola oil

2 eggs

1 cup milk

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp lime juice

21 oz can cherry pie filling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl.  Slowly add in your canola oil until fully blended then beat in eggs one at a time. Next, add milk, vanilla and lime juice; mix until smooth.  Pour into greased 9 x 13″ pan (I used glass).  Dump cherry pie filling on top in spoonfuls and using the spoon swirl it through the lime batter. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until done.  Remove to rack to cool and then refrigerate until completely cool and firm enough to cut into bars.

 

You definitely gotta try these if you’re a Cherry Limeade fan, or even if you’re not (you might become one)! Summer isn’t over yet, so bake it up and celebrate!
