Pumpkin Bars

We had a get together Friday night with some family and friends and as always we had lots of yummy food to eat. I’m going to share a couple of the recipes that we had that night with you. First off, the Pumpkin Bars. This was a favorite of the night. These bars are the moistest cake like bars I have ever had. The perfect pumpkin taste with a thin layer of yummy cream cheese frosting. This is the perfect dessert to make if you have to serve a lot of people, as it makes a large sheet cake. The ingredients are:

  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 2 t. Baking powder
  • 1 t. Baking soda
  • 2 t. Cinnamon
  • 1 Cup oil
  • 1 Can (15 oz.) pumpkin
  • 2 Eggs

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 8 oz. Cream Cheese (softened)
  • 1 stick Butter (softened)
  • 1 T. Milk
  • 1 t. Vanilla
  • 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease an 18×12″ sheet cake pan.
  3. Combine all dry ingredients.
  4. Add the oil, pumpkin, and eggs and mix until all combined.
  5. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool and then frost with Cream Cheese Frosting.

For frosting

  1. Mix cream cheese and butter until smooth.
  2. Add milk and vanilla and mix,
  3. Then add powdered sugar and combine until smooth.

(Note: If you don’t have an 18×12″ sheet pan you can use a 15×10″ pan and then increase baking time to 20 minutes. It will turn out more like a sheet cake than bars but it will still be delicious.)
