    Needed a little longer than 30 mins and was still a little undercooked in the middle, but yummy nonetheless!  -  02 Dec 2013

    I have made this twice now, the first time I made it according to Michelle's recipe and found it to be good, but it did not bake completely in the middle (even after baking close to an hour- edges were burning and middle was not set) and the bread rose up over the sides of the pan... so I made it again with some changes and it was excellent- here are my changes: 2 eggs instead of just 1 and baked it in a greased 9 x 13 pan for around 30 min- more manageable size "square" (not so high rising" and middle baked up completely.)  -  18 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This recipe has some mysteries. One egg is listed in ingredients but in instruction it says eggs (plural) I used 1 and it was crumbly so maybe 2? Also this is a cookie recipe? It calls for a 8 inch sq. pan and baking time took 50 minutes instead of thirty. Maybe it was supposed to be a 9x 13 pan for cookie squares and not cake squares. Probably will not make again. Flavor is okay but needs whipped cream or frosting of some kind.  -  05 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
