This is a perfect dessert for holiday parties and get-togethers and a favorite even among those who don’t favor pumpkin! So very moist with a frosting that is wonderfully delicious and creamy but not too sweet. Easy to make and enough for a large group.

  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 c. sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 c. oil
  • 2 c. pumpkin
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 c. flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder


Beat eggs in large bowl, then stir in sugar and oil. Add baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and mix well. Mix in pumpkin. Add flour and stir until well mixed. Pour into a greased and floured 11x15 jelly roll pan (cookie sheet with sides). Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. (Middle is slow to finish baking so use toothpick to test doneness.) Let cool, then cover top with frosting and cut into bars.


  • 3 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp. milk
  • 1/3 c. butter, softened
  • 2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Cream butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Stir together well.
