Moist pumpkin bars with raisins and a maple glaze. A fall favorite.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup solid pack pumpkin puree
- 3/4 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
- 1 tablespoon real maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch baking pan.
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and baking soda; set aside. In a large bowl beat the eggs, oil and sugar together until smooth. Stir in the pumpkin, then the dry ingredients. Finally, stir in the raisins.
Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan and spread evenly. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow bars to cool before adding the glaze.
To make the glaze, stir together the confectioners' sugar with the maple syrup. If glaze is too thick to drizzle from a spoon, just add a little water. Drizzle over the cooled pumpkin bars before cutting. Individual bars can be decorated with a candy corn or candy pumpkin.
