Pumpkin Bars

With a name of Autumn, I was naturally ready to dive into all things fall related! This past weekend I had a little time on my hands for Fall Break and I couldn’t resist lighting a pumpkin candle and baking some yummy pumpkin bars!


This recipe originally was adapted from William Sonoma and given to me from my great aunt, but I didn’t have the exact recipe with me so it’s slightly adapted! Without further ado:


  • 1 can pumpkin
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup candied pecans
  • 1 package yellow cake mix


  • Preheat oven to 350º and grease 9×13  pan.
  • In a bowl mix pumpkin, condensed milk, 3 eggs, cinnamon, and allspice (*Pumpkin pie spice would also be great to substitute for the spices! I couldn’t find any ironically!). Pour into prepared pan.
  • Sprinkle cake mix and candied pecans over the pumpkin.
  • Pour melted butter over the cake mix and pecans, making sure to leave no dry areas of powder.
  • Bake 60 minutes and cool completely.
  • Enjoy!
