Black Currant Bars


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cup
    frozen CurrantC™ Black Currants, thawed
  • 1 Cup
    sugar
  • 3/4 Cups
    water
  • 1
    (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 3/4 Cups
    butter, melted
  • 2
    eggs
  • 1 Cup
    rolled oats
  • 3/4 Cups
    packed light brown sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon
    ground ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon
    ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the CurrantC™ Black Currants, white sugar, and water. Cook, stirring occasionally until all of the Black Currants have popped, and the mixture is thick, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside to cool.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, melted butter, and eggs. Stir in the oats, brown sugar, ginger and cinnamon. Set aside about 1 1/2 cups of the mixture, and spread the rest into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pack down to form a solid crust, getting it as even as possible. Spread the cooled Black Currant mixture over the crust. Pinch off pieces of the remaining mixture and place evenly over the Black Currant layer.

  4. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top is lightly browned. Cool in the pan for 1 hour before slicing into bars.
