Pumpkin Spice Bars


With the month of October behind us now, I look forward to November and the Thanksgiving season. I enjoy pumpkin pie but usually don’t have any during the year but instead leave it for Thanksgiving Day. Then it’s a real treat.

Pumpkin Spice Bars

The original recipe is doubled but I halved it and the spice bars came out fine.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 16 ounce tub ready-made cream cheese frosting
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 15-ounce can of pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a 15x10x1 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin with a wire whisk until smooth.
  4. Stir in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and the spices.
  5. Spread the mixture into the pan.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool completely then frost with cream cheese frosting.
  8. Cut into bars and top with nuts if you wish.
These are very delicious.
Note: I’m not sure where the original recipe came from.
