How to Make Perfect Pumpkin Bars

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon and set aside.
  • 2Beat sugar, pumpkin, oil, and eggs until well incorporated.
  • 3Gradually add dry ingredients into pumpkin mixture until fully incorporated.
  • 4Pour mixture into an ungreased 15x10x1 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Let cool completely before frosting.
  • 5For the cream cheese frosting:
    Beat together butter, cream cheese, vanilla until incorporated. Gradually add powdered sugar, and taste as you go. I like my frosting a little less sweet so I end up using less than the full amount of powdered sugar. Once frosted, I garnish with cinnamon on top.
    Enjoy!
