  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir into the pumpkin mixture until thoroughly combined.
  3. Spread the batter evenly into an ungreased 10x15 inch jellyroll pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in preheated oven. Cool before frosting.
  4. To make the frosting, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Stir in vanilla. Add confectioners' sugar a little at a time, beating until mixture is smooth. Spread evenly on top of the cooled bars. Cut into squares.

I used 3/4 of a 29 oz. can and these bars still came out more cake like. I think next time I will try to add the whole can. They were not very flavorful like I am use to. I think by adding the p...

Thie recipe was great! I used unsweetened Applesauce in place of the oil, and egg beaters in place of the eggs. I also added 1/4t nutmeg and 1/4 t ginger- it really was wonderful- moist and flav...

Soooo yummy! Next time I think I will make a little extra frosting. I used a sugar pumpkin, cooked it and pureed it. 1 3/4 c. cooked pumpkin = 15oz. can. Thanks for a great recipe.

I made these for a dinner party at my friend's place, and she only had a 9 X 13" pan. I baked it for an additional 5 minutes and it came out very moist and delicious, a lot more like a cake tha...
