Pumpkin Cake Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

This recipe definitely spells autumn. This is just delicious and very cake like. The frosting is not too sweet and is perfect with the cake bars. I'm not that big on cream cheese frosting but it is perfect for this. This recipe comes from http://www.recipezaar.com/. I've had lots of success with them lately. Anyhow I am glad that these cake bars are gone because I found myself nibbling on them constantly (like morning, noon and night).....!!!

4 large eggs

1 2/3 cups white sugar

1 (15 ounce) can of pumpkin puree

2 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp ground cinnamon

6 ounces cream cheese

6 tbs butter, softened

3 cups confectioners' sugar

Preheat over to 350F degrees

Grease and flour one 9 x 13 inch glass pan (I used a nonstick one)

In a mixing bowl , beat together the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; add to the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly

Spread into the prepared pan

Bake at 350F degrees for 25 to 30 minutes

Remove from oven and allow to cool

For the frosting: beat together the cream cheese , butter and confectioners' sugar. Evenly spread over the bars after they have cooled

I have had carrot cake with cream cheese icing, but not pumpkin cake. I am planning on getting a couple of pumpkins this weekend and go into a pumpkin frenzy... your cake bars will be in the frenzy for sure!

This is EXACTLY what I've been craving!

I'm weird about cream cheese. Like, I'm not a huge fan of cheesecake. I'm ashamed, and I hardly ever admit this.
