ISO a Recipe for Pumpkin Bars

I have never made pumpkin bars and thought they would be something different to take to a family gathering. I have searched the internet and am confused --- so many recipes and so many comments. Does anyone have a tried and true recipe for pumpkin bars? I would appreciate any help. Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!

This is the recipe that I use. I like it because it uses the whole can of pumpkin so you are not left with half a can to use up in another recipe.

Good luck!

Pumpkin bars/cake
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Ingredients
2 cups AP flour
11/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2t salt
2 t baking powder
2 t ground cinnamon
1 t baking soda
1/4t ground cloves
4 eggs beaten
1 16 ounce can of solid pack pumpkin (you may also use two cups of thick mashed or pureed pumpkin, winter squash, sweet potato or carrots.)
1 cup of canola oil
cup of chopped walnuts
cup of raisins*
Combine dry ingredients.
Stir in eggs, pumpkin and oil.
Add nuts and raisins.
Spread batter into ungreased pan and bake.
Test with a toothpick to see if it comes out clean.
For bars bake in a 10x15x1 inch pan for approx... 25 – 30 minutes.
For cake bake in a 9x13 pan for approximately 35 -40 minutes.
For 9 inch layers grease and flour the pans and bake for 35 – 40 minutes.


When cool spank with powdered sugar or frost with cream cheese frosting.

*Omit the raisins and sprinkle the frosted bars with mini chocolate chips if you are feeding a group of kids.

This is the recipe that I love, my mom made it for years, she got it from my grandmother's neighbor. You can spice it up with additional spices if you want to, but I love them as written.

They are very moist and delicious

Thank you for the reminder of this delicious sounding recipe, BC! I'm definitely going to make these pumpkin bars.

OMGoodness....AB. Your recipe sounds wonderful, too! Decisions, decisions...or maybe both!
