Easy Pumpkin Spice Bars Recipe with deliciously smooth cream cheese frosting. This is so quick to make and unbelievably good.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
In large mixing bowl, whisk the wet ingredients together including the eggs, sugar, oil, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract, until combined.
In a separate medium sized bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, including the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, salt and baking soda, just until combined.
Add the dry mixture into the wet mixture and stir until just combined. DO NOT OVERMIX. (It helps to fold the mixtures together)
Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish, and, using a spatula, spread the batter out evenly in the dish, smoothing the top.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake, comes out clean.
Transfer the dish to a wire rack and cool to room temperature.
In a stand mixer, on low speed, stir together the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla, until combined. Stir in the powdered sugar, and mix until the frosting is super smooth and creamy.
Spread the delicious frosting on the cooled cake, and you are all set to slice up delicious pumpkin spice bars. Enjoy!
