Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling
The bar itself was nice and moist. It had great flavor. I was disappointed with the frosting. There wasn’t enough fir good coverage of the pan and it didn’t stick to the bar. Next time I will buy a can of frosting. Expected better from Taste of Home.
I’m going with for stars ONLY because these turn out more of a pan bread or cake not bars. Amazing flavor in the cake and icing!
Moist and delicious. Best ever pumpkin bars.
I msde this minus canola oil, using 1 cup of homemade applesauce. It is moist and delicious beyond belief!
I don’t know where this recipe originated, but I double checked, it‘s EXACTLY the same one I have been making for forty years! It’s moist, it’s delicious. Some folks have commented that it’s not chewy. No, it’s not. It’s not supposed to be. It’s not exactly a cake either. It cuts into neat bars, my family loves them. I bake it in a 10x15 x 1 pan, it comes out perfectly. The only thing I add is a pinch of cloves. Delicious and reliable.
These were probably the best thing I’ve ever made, and I’m a big baker. I used about 1/3 more cinnamon, 1/3 less oil, and baked about 5 minutes longer...but ovens do vary. Delish!
I BAKE ALL THE TIME AND THE KIDS ARE ALWAYS ASKING ME FOR SOMETHING. I TRIED THESE AND NOW I HAVE A NEW "MOST REQUESTED" DESERT. THANKS FOR THE WONDERFUL AND EASY TO MAKE DESSERT . SO MOIST.. SIMPLY DELICIOUS !!!
I added pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon. I had a hard time getting it done all the way. I thin next time I will only add half of the oil. A cup seems like way too much.
This recipe is fantastic!! The cake part was very moist and thick. The frosting was delicious and not too sweet! My sister loved it and she’s not even a fan of pumpkin! 10/10 recommend
I made these to take to visit a sick family member and was pretty disappointed by the lack of flavor in the bars themselves. They definitely need spices other then just cinnamon and I regretted not adding ground cloves, ginger, and nutmeg but I wanted to make the recipe exactly as shown. The frosting was good but was the only flavor you could taste.
