Special thanks to Rhoda from Alexandria, Ohio for sharing this dessert recipe.

It has been one of her favorites for some time and has become a favorite restaurant recipe and will become a favorite dessert treat of yours, especially with a cup of coffee or tea.

When I received this recipe, I prepared the dessert the same day at my husband’s request (he calls them “rubbernecks”).

I was glad I did. And the people who I shared these with were happy Rhoda generously shared.

Preparation time: 10-15 minutes. Makes 16-20 bars (“rubbernecks”: -) )



  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons maple flavoring
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder



  • Combine all ingredients in a 9 X 9 inch baking pan or 8 X 8 inch baking pan (smaller pan = thicker bars)
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-32 minutes (do not over bake)
  • Cool and cut into small bars and then dust with powdered sugar

As Rhoda said in her notes when she submitted the recipe, the dessert tastes great anytime, but it makes a wonderful holiday dessert, especially since it is easy, quick and takes only basic ingredients.

Thanks, again, Rhoda.

Did you know? Hanson Gregory, an American, claimed to have invented the ring-shaped doughnut in 1847 aboard a lime-trading ship when he was only 16 years old.

Gregory was dissatisfied with the greasiness of doughnuts twisted into various shapes and with the raw center of regular doughnuts.

He claimed to have punched a hole in the center of dough with the ship's tin pepper box, and later taught the technique to his mother.

                 So, I warned my husband. Speeding tickets coming! ;-)
