Easy to Make Pumpkin Bars

You can whip up this batter in 5 minutes or less. I love how easy these are to make - and how yummy they are to eat. These are a perfect autumn treat.

4 eggs
1 cup veg. or canola oil
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups pumpkin or a 14 oz. can
2 cups flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda

Combine all ingredients together in order. Stir until just mixed. Bake in 11x17 inch pan at 350 for 15-10 minutes.


3 oz. soft cream cheese (1/2 a package)
1/2 cup margarine
1tsp vanilla
2- 3 tbsp. milk
4 cups icing sugar

I use half this recipe and I still have icing left over.
I got this recipe from a friend. Whenever I share these bars - I am asked for the recipe. This is definitely a keeper.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi, I am planning on baking these yummy looking bars and have some questions about the pan...

    Is 11x17 the correct size? That seems large.

    Does it matter if the pan is glass or metal? Would that change the cooking time?

    Thank you.

    (I have an 11x7 pan and 9x14 glass pans)

  5. Super yummy! added some pumpkin spice to my frosting =] Thx for the recipe
