How To Make pumpkin squares

  • 1
    Preheat oven 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients- flour, cinnamon and sugar. Mix wet ingredients- eggs, oil and pumpkin. I add a little over the 16 oz of pumpkin. Probably about 18 oz. It makes it denser than a regular cake.

    Then mix wet to dry ingredients. You will need a 15x10x1 jelly roll pan for cooking. After mixing place in the sprayed pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cake is dense. Just make sure it is done.
  • 3
    While cake is cooling prepare frosting. Mix cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar. You may need to add more powdered sugar. If to thick you can add a little milk.

    Once cake is cooled frost and enjoy. Cake should be kept in the refrigerator. It is best eaten cold.
