We’ve made our pumpkin puree, so we are now ready to use it. Right? Right. Let’s start with luscious, cream cheese—swirled pumpkin bars. Bars, but caky. Super delicious caky.
Swirled into the batter before the cake goes in the oven, the cream cheese does the amazing—it makes the bars super tender, almost creamy in texture! We also have two of the fall’s must-have spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, spiking up the flavor for us. And the color of the baked bars is just gorgeous.
This was the first time I made these bars and I sure will bake more of these this pumpkin season. I loved them with my steaming hot cup of freshly brewed tea. Made me feel warm in the cooling fall weather. Alright. Your turn to bake these scrumptious bars now. Let me know what you think. Enjoy! And stay warm.
Look at those pretty swirls!
Mix the wet ingredients with the dry to obtain this kind of batter.
