Pumpkin Bars for A Crowd
If you are looking for a pumpkin bar recipe to feed a large crown, then this is your recipe.....
Pumpkin Bars (from real mom kitchen )
1 1/2 cup oil (I use canola)
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 large can (29 oz) pumpkin
3 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. salt
chocolate chips or cream cheese frosting work well with these bars
Mix together eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla, and pumpkin. Fold in dry ingredients and pour into jelly roll pan (13 x 18 pan) . (At this point you sprinkle half the pan with 1 cup of chocolate chips) Bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Do not over bake. Frost with cream cheese frosting.
Cream Cheese Frosting
( use this recipe to frost half the cake. You could use it to frost the whole thing, but I like a good layer. So if you frost the whole pan, I would recommend doubling this recipe)
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese (I use light)
8 Tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Blend together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in powdered sugar and vanilla.
