NATIONAL RAISIN AND SPICE BAR DAY
Observed annually on April 5th, National Raisin and Spice Bar Day celebrates a baked treat that’s easy to make.
Sometimes comfort foods come in the form of raisins and spices fresh from the oven. Bakers offer a variety of ways to make these delicious bars. If you like nuts, add nuts. If you don’t like nuts or are allergic, leave them out! For those who love vanilla, accidentally tip the bottle a second too long. Someone might think your bars are the best.
You can add a little powdered sugar or a drizzle of icing over the top of these bars for added sweetness. However, most would agree, these bars with the naturally sweet raisin complemented by cinnamon are terrific as they are. The warm spices in this dish fill our homes with welcoming scents like no other. For generations, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice have elicited fond memories of holidays with family. They pair well with raisins in many recipes and raisin and spice bars are no exception.
