Pumpkin Bars

 Let's start off with something sweet. Now this is a recipe me and my family love! Pumpkin Bars are a great thing to start off the fall season. The creamy frosting and soft cake just melts in your mouth. I hope you love it!
Ingredients for Pumpkin Bars
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 2 cups of pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder                                         
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon


Directions for Pumpkin Bars

First, beat the eggs. Next, add the wet ingredients (sugar and pumpkin). Then, add the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground cloves, and cinnamon). After that, add the vegetable oil and beat for 5 minutes (Warning: Do NOT forget to beat for 5 minutes because it takes all the time to mix). Finally, pour the batter into a buttered and floured pan (so they won't stick). Cook for 30 minutes in a "18x12" pan. Then let cool and add the frosting.

   Ingredients for Frosting
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
  • 3/4 stick of butter
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons of milk


Directions for Frosting
First let cream cheese and butter get soft. Then add other ingredients and mix with whisk.

This recipe is one that is simple but effective. It's sweet taste just leaves you wanting more. And it's perfect for your dessert table this Thanksgiving! My grandma just loves pumpkin bars and insists we bring her some every time we make them. I absolutely LOVE this recipe because its so easy and fun to make!
