Sweet Bar-B-Q Barn Spareribs Sauce

by Maria Vanelli at her She Loves Biscotti website circa Spring  2016

 

1  1/2 cups brown sugar (or less if you don't want a very sweet sauce)

1 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup catsup

1/3 cup lemon juice (I also add zest of 1 lemon)

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. paprika

2 cloves fresh garlic, minced*

 

Whisk above and place in a small saucepan.  Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, whisking occasionally.

 

*PS:  I add 1/2 tsp. Colman's Dry Mustard to this before simmering for some extra zip.  

 

This sauce is also good on barbecued chicken or boneless 1 inch thick pork chops.

Re: APRIL 2019 RECIPE GAME

Sorry I do not have a picture for this cake.  Hope you can visualize as I describe.

 

Bunny Cake

 

Bake a two-layer white or yellow cake in 8 or 9" pans. Let cool.  Cover large baking sheet with foil.  Put one round layer in center.  Cut other layer ....two half-moon type slices with center section remaining to resemble bow-tie shape.  Place bow-tie slice beneath round layer...other two pieces for bunny ears.  Frost all in white icing.  Sprinkle coconut over all.  Tint a small amount of coconut pink for inside of ears.  Tint extra coconut green for grass around bunny cake.  Use EASTER CANDY ....like jelly beans or gumdrops as decoration on bow tie....also eyes...little slices of red licorice as whiskers and mouth.

 

Enjoy and Happy Easter!

 

NEXT INGREDIENT ..... SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK 

                                       or EVAPORATED MILK

it mayseem that when you first mix this it will be sticky, but after 24 hours, the cocnut and apricots will retain the sweetened condensed milk.  i also some times add chopped nuts to the mix.

Re: APRIL 2019 RECIPE GAME

@Qwalker : I have so many precious memories with making this cake. When I was single and invited to various Easter events- this was my to cake. Really easy to do. Plus I would bake a layer cake- use green coconut for the top and decorate with jelly beans for the eggs. I would take long pipe cleaners and cover with pastel color ribbons and insert on top of the cake to make it look like an Easter basket. Southern Bee
