Pumpkin Cake Bars are one of my favorite fall treats. They are moist and spicy; their aroma is so comforting while they bake.
about Pumpkin Cake Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting
My mother made a wonderful spice cake when I was growing up. This isn’t that recipe, but similar. Sometimes she used apple sauce, but more often used pumpkin puree. In those days, the pumpkin puree of choice came from a can. She preferred the Festal brand. That was before I realized you could buy an actual pumpkin and make your own.
I always pull this recipe out in the fall. It’s a good one to decorate with children for Halloween if you keep an assortment of food coloring on hand. There is plenty of frosting for decorating. You can plan on having at least a cup and a half of extra frosting for your pastry bags.
