Super Moist and Easy Pumpkin Bars

I got this recipe from another Army wife more than 15 years ago. Everyone who has ever had it loves it. It always comes out moist. The icing is thin so I keep in the frig to firm it up and the cake still stays moist. Also good with whole wheat flour. I like using organic ingredients, and real butter as much as possible, but that's your choice. Great for Thanksgiving or anytime. I'd rather have this than pumpkin pie myself.
