These are the most delicious pumpkin bars that I have ever made and tasted. This recipe belongs to Paula Deen. I’ve made it many times. They are always a hit. I’ve made them as pumpkin bars, which is the original Paula Deen recipe and I’ve also made them as cupcakes. Click here to view the original recipe by Paula Deen. I used this recipe to enter a Halloween cupcake contest last year and I won!
For Paula Deen’s pumpkin bars, you will need the following ingredients:
1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
15-ounce can pumpkin
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
1. Using an electric mixer at medium speed, combine the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin until light and fluffy.
2. Stir together the flour (don’t forget to sift the flour, very important!), baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda.
3. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and mix at low speed until thoroughly combined and the batter is smooth.
4. Fill the batter in a 9.5 x 13.5 x 2 inch pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Let it completely cool before frosting.
Today, I am grateful for Octobers, pumpkins, and love.
Goodbye October, Hello November!
