Pumpkin Bars

Well, hello!  So sorry, blogging got left behind while I have been busy substitute teaching.  On top of that, today I have a sore throat and runny nose!

Over the weekend, I did bake some delicious pumpkin cupcakes with delectable cream cheese frosting.  I do not like pumpkin pie (it's a texture thing), but I absolutely love pumpkin in other baked goods and you can never go wrong with cream cheese frosting!  This recipe from Paula Deen is one of my favorites.

You will notice that Paula's recipe calls for a baking pan.  I prefer  pumpkin cupcakes so that I can easily give away leftovers.  Otherwise, I am tempted to eat it all!   I poured the batter into lined muffin pans and then baked the cupcakes for about 15-20 minutes.  Let me know how this recipe comes out for you!


  1. these look scrumptious... pumpkin has lots of vitamin A...
    does that make these cupcakes healthier?
    our Trader Joe's is now carrying pumpkin creme cheese spread... bought some this evening...
    hope you'll participate in WEEKWORD? the word is "temptation"... see my blog for posting details...

  2. Pei pa koa is pretty decent cough medicine (from herbal as I remembered), great non alcoholic medicine, some western cough medicine are more effective, but this is non drowsy.
