Grandma's Pumpkin Bar Recipe
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tsp of vanilla
  • 1 can of pumpkin
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • Frosting:
  • 8 oz of cream cheese
  • 4 cups of powdered sugar
  • ½ stick of butter
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  1. In a large bowl combine the oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and pumpkin. Stir until well combined. The batter will be very wet. Add in the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix until there are no clumps of flour to be seen.
  2. Pour the batter into a large pan 18 X 12 and spread the batter evenly.
  3. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Do the tooth pick test to see if the cake is done. It should not have any batter on it.
  4. Let the cake cool.
  5. In a small bowl make the frosting. Combine the butter and cream cheese and mix with a hand mixer. Gradually add in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Spread the frosting over the cake after it has cooled. Enjoy!
This recipe makes a lot of bars depending on how many you cut. I got 40 per pan.
