|Pumpkin Bars||Cream Cheese Frosting|
|Granulated white sugar||Cream cheese|
|Brown sugar||Vanilla extract|
|Vegetable or canola oil||Powdered sugar|
|Pumpkin pie spice|
- In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin puree, granulated white sugar, brown sugar, and oil. Add the eggs and vanilla extract. Set aside.
- In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until no dry flour is visible.
- Butter or spray a 9×13 baking pan and spread the batter evenly.
- Bake at 350°F (177°C) for 26-28 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean.
- Let the cake cool completely before adding the luscious cream cheese frosting.
- To make the frosting, cream together the softened butter and cream cheese. Incorporate the vanilla extract and powdered sugar until smooth.
- Spread the frosting generously over the cooled cake.
And voilà! Your taste buds will thank you for creating this exquisite masterpiece of a dessert. But before you dive into pumpkin paradise, let me share some useful tips and substitutions:
- Crack your eggs into a small bowl before adding them to the mix to easily scoop out any stray shell fragments.
- Don’t have pumpkin pie spice on hand? No worries! Mix 1 1/4 teaspoons of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon of ginger as a substitute.
- Allow the cake to cool completely before adding the frosting. We don’t want a buttery, runny disaster!
- For a smoother frosting, sift the powdered sugar to eliminate lumps. But hey, if you end up with lumps, sprinkle a few candy corns on top – no one will notice!
Now, here’s the best part – these pumpkin bars can be refrigerated for up to five days, making them the ideal treat to savor throughout the week. The frosting may firm up a bit, but trust me, it only enhances the experience.
