Eggs, oil, pumpkin and spices are mixed together and baked, to create these deliciously soft, moist pumpkin cake slices. Drizzle with icing or spread thickly with cream cheese icing for a terrific treat.
For the pumpkin puree, you can used jarred or tinned if available. Otherwise, simply bake or steam the pumpkin, then puree in a blender. You can freeze any excess pumpkin for later use.
Everyone loved these pumpkins squares! After reading the reviews prior to making them I decided to bake mine in a 11 x 16 cookie sheet. Because the other review stated that they were thick and more like having a piece of cake and I needed something that made a lot and was more like a "bar". I decreased the baking time to 20 minutes and they turned out perfect. Thanks again for the great recipe! - 15 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I took the advice of others. I used 3/4 cup oil and baked it in a cookie sheet with sides for 25 min. It was fabulous with a cream cheese frosting. - 28 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
More like a cake than bars or squares, but fantastic just the same! - 30 Oct 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
