These pumpkin bars are more like cake bars. Delicious pieces of baked pumpkin cake are topped with a sweet, creamy frosting.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 4 eggs
- 1 2/3 cups white sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9x13 inch pan and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; add to wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. Spread into prepared pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
