Easy Pumpkin Pie Bars

Recipe by  

"These pumpkin pie bars taste like pumpkin pie, but are so much easier because you don't need to bother with the pie crust. The yellow cake mix does all the work."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat eggs in a large bowl. Whisk sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger, and cloves together in a separate bowl. Stir sugar mixture and pumpkin into eggs until completely incorporated.
  3. Gradually stir evaporated milk into pumpkin mixture. Add 1 cup yellow cake mix to the pumpkin mixture and stir to remove any lumps. Pour mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle remaining yellow cake mix over the top and drizzle butter over the cake mix.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 1 hour. Cool to room temperature and cut into bars. Top with whipped topping.

This recipe is easy and tastes great! I substituted 1 cup gluten free cake mix, and left off the topping, so it was even more like pumpkin pie AND gluten free. Yay!

When the recipe submitter says this tastes like pumpkin pie, believe her. It definitely does! Now, that's not the greatest thing for me, since I'm not the biggest fan of pumpkin pie, but I know a lot of people are, so we can discount my opinion. I think it's the texture since I like the taste of pumpkin. At any rate, this used up a lot of stuff in my pantry. I had two 15 oz cans of pumpkin so had a bit more pumpkin than called for, and didn't have yellow cake mix so I used vanilla. Still, this worked really well and tastes like a basic pumpkin pie. It makes a ton and I'm hoping my sister in law and nieces like pumpkin pie, since I plan to bring a lot of this to their house when we go over to give them our presents. This is incredibly easy to make; just be prepared to leave it in the oven longer than stated. Mine took an hour and 20 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe was delicious and easy to make. Took it to a pre Thanksgiving family dinner. It was a hit..Everyone wanted seconds. I used a gluten free spice cake mix in place of the regular yellow cake mix due to gluten intolerance in our family. The spice really complemented the flavor of the pumpkin. Other than that I followed the recipe as written. Cooking time was a little longer than an hour. This will be a family favorite for years to come. Thanks!
