Almond Orange Bars

So, I made the almond orange gluten free cake on Wednesday. Yesterday I decided to modify the recipe and make it mini loaves instead. This cut calories in several ways- decreased the butter and sugar used in the upside down part of the cake, then also I cut back in the sugar in the cake…
