Servings: 18



  • 2 cups flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 2/3 cup sugar

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 can (15 ounces) pure pumpkin (not pie filling!)


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

  • 12 Tablespoons butter, softened at room temperature

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 Tablespoons cream, half-and-half, or milk

  • 6 cups unsifted powdered sugar



  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F.

  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin until light and fluffy. Add mixed dried ingredients into pumpkin mixture, beating until fully combined.

  4. Spread batter in an ungreased jelly roll pan.

  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes (depending on size of pan), until edges begin to brown slightly and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.


  1. Combine cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and cream in a mixing bowl. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed. Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, mixing between each addition, until all cups are added and frosting is smooth.

  2. Spread evenly on cooled pumpkin bars*.
