Really, this recipe is more like a cake than bars. These are delicious whether you use pumpkin or squash but my favourite so far is using our very own squash from our very own garden to make this wonderful cake. I’ve got a pan in the oven as I type this. YUM!!!
In bowl sift together: (I don’t have a sifter big enough so I just use a whisk to stir it. No baking soda clumps!)
2 Cups Flour
2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
In large bowl mix:
1 Cup Oil
2 Cups Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
2 Cups Cooked Pumpkin or Squash
Mix dry ingredients into the wet and pour into 9×13 pan.
Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes (until toothpick comes out clean). It took all of the 30 minutes for mine to be done.
2 to 2 3/4 Cups Icing Sugar
8 to 11 oz Cream Cheese softened
3/4 Cup Butter
2 tsp Vanilla
Spread on cooled pumpkin squares. Keep refrigerated.
Enjoy! I know we’re going to love dessert tonight.
