Pumpkin Bars with Old-Fashioned Caramel Frosting

INGREDIENTS:

Serves: 20

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • ½ cup firm butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1¾ cup powdered sugar
METHOD:
  1. Mix together bar ingredients (brown sugar through melted butter), adding melted butter last. Pour into a 10½ by 16 inch pan. Bake at 180 until the cake springs back when lightly touched, about 40 minutes.
  2. For the frosting, boil the butter and brown sugar for two minutes. Add the milk. Bring it to a boil again and add powdered sugar. Whisk until smooth and pour over cooled cake immediately. Frosting will set very fast, so just pour it over the cake evenly to avoid having to spread with a spatula.
