Pumpkin Bars with Cinnamon Vanilla Frosting

These are moist, delicious bars that just taste of fall.  You can bake them in a 11 x 7 pan for a thicker bar/cake or in a 13 x 9 bar for a thinner bar.   Either way they make a delicious dessert.  I found the recipe on The Beach House blog. 

  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 1⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 15 ounce can pumpkin
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Frosting Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 1/8 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp. milk or half and half
Beat sugar and vegetable oil .  Add eggs, one at a time.  Beat in pumpkin.  Add in flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Spray a 11 x 7 or 13 x 9 pan.  Spread batter in pan.

preheat oven to 350.  For a 13 x 9 pan bake for  30 minutes.  For a 11 x 7 pan bake 45 minutes.  Test with a toothpick to make sure it is bake through in the middle.  If not, bake for additional minutes until done.  Let cool.

Beat butter and confectioners sugar well.  Bet in cinnamon and vanilla.  Add milk.  It too thick, add additional milk until it is a good spreading consistency.  Frost the cooled cake/bars.
