READY IN: 1hr 25mins




  • Pumpkin Squares:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 inch square pan.
  • Beat together eggs, sugars, oil and pumpkin.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. Add to egg mixture and stir well.
  • Mix in raisins and nuts, and pour into pan.
  • Bake 55 minutes or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. *Should be a cake consistency* Cool and spread with Browned Butter Frosting. Cut into bars and enjoy!
  • ***I updated this recipe after the first comment about it, I had made a typo on the baking time and occasionally it takes even longer to bake than that, just do the toothpick test to gauge the doneness, sorry about the confusion!***.
  • Browned Butter Frosting:
  • Melt margarine over low heat until light brown.
  • In a large bowl, stir together powdered sugar, vanilla and margarine. Gradually add hot water, stirring until frosting is smooth enough to spread.
