Pumpkin Bars/Cake

I got this recipe at one of my bridal showers and tried it out for the first time last fall. I made this over and over and over again! I took it to work and it was a hit. I made it for my husband and he ate it for breakfast ,lunch, and dinner. Yes I know, there is a lot of butter and oil. If you’re health conscious or trying to watch what you eat, make these for company and send the rest home with them. They’ll be your new best friends if you do.

Pumpkin Batter:
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup oil
1 15 oz can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix please)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder

Throw in a mixing bowl or electric mixer and mix until smooth! Place mixed batter in a jelly roll pan (cookie sheet with sides on it). Spread out the batter and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Cream Cheese Frosting
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
6 TBS butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs milk
1 3/4 cup confectioners sugar

Mix butter and cheese together in an electric mixer. Add vanilla and milk. Turn off mixer, add sugar, and slowly mix together. Mix until smooth and creamy.

Spread the frosting on the pumpkin cake after it has cooled. Cut into squares and enjoy!

    I am a pumpkin fanatic. I love pumpkin pie, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin candle, and on and on. I even found pumpkin flavored tea bags the other day. I am definitely trying this!!

    haha… well, I salvaged some, at least. 🙂 And the ex-cons across the street LOVED them! I didn’t have to tell them that the middle was mush. 🙂 My next trip to TJ Maxx will involve picking up a jelly roll pan!

    I made these for a Christmas party, and they were a HIT! People were literally lining up to try and get seconds! I like that they aren’t too sweet; kinda light and fluffy… Sooo yummy!
