Pumpkin Bars

What you need: 

1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree
1-2/3 cups granulated sugar
1 cup applesauce or vegetable oil (I use applesauce)
4 [ur=]egg equivalents, prepared
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch salt [u]Icing[/u]:
1 (8-ounce) package vegan cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup vegan margarine, softened (I use Earth Balance)
2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

What you do: 

1. Bars: In a bowl of an electric mixer, combine pumpkin puree, sugar, applesauce, and egg replacer; beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.
2. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; thoroughly mix. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture; mix at low speed until thoroughly combined and the batter is smooth. Spread into a greased 9" x 13" baking pan.
3. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 30 minutes. Let cool completely before frosting
4. Icing: In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine cream cheese and margarine; beat until smooth. Add confectioners' sugar; mix at low speed until well mixed. Add vanilla extract; mix until thoroughly blended.
5. Spread icing on cooled pumpkin bars, then cut into squares and serve.

In a kind of revenge for their first duel "fight", PK Subban and Brandon Prust have "thrown" the gloves for a second time this season, in good humor of course.


The gaps in fire safety were also observed. Firefighters who went to the scene had to change most smoke alarms.


 Awesome recipe, but please don't use a whole cup of oil, it is so much better with only 1/4 to 1/2 cup oil and an extra cup of pumpkin! I also used a little less sugar than called for and frontier's pumpkin pie spice blend instead of pure cinnamon. I received many compliments on them and when I got back home I quickly finished any and all leftovers. This is one I will certainly make again ^_^
