Pumpkin Cake Bars are moist, soft and delicious to serve especially as a Fall dessert, tea time treats or anytime snacking

These easy to make, Pumpkin cake bars are one of my favorite recipes. Not only because it is a quick and easy recipe, but most delicious as well.

Every now and then I would add some chopped nuts into the batter, which gives the cake just that tiny bit of an extra Fall taste.

Together with the spices, the pumpkin cake is truly one of the best desserts for after dinner with the family, or when you have some friends over for a cup of coffee.

The recipe makes a large cake, 20 x 30 centimeters (9 x 13 inches) and depending on your cut you can easily get 15 – 18 servings from one cake.

I used a homemade Browned Butter Frosting this time round (recipe **HERE), but we usually enjoy the cake bars with a simple cream cheese frosting.

I prefer a lighter flavored frosting in order for all the Fall flavors of the cake to come through and the frosting provides just enough sweetness to make it a heavenly sweet treat.

As for the texture of the cake … super moist !

And it will keep perfectly sealed in a container for a day or two. Although I have never had the chance to see exactly how long it will keep, as these delights disappear very quickly.
