Paula Deen’s Pumpkin Bars are one of those recipes that my family has made for years. I am not sure where I first saw the recipe.
I think one of my sister’s first told me about it, but I don’t remember for sure. I know my sisters and I have all made this recipe for years.
One of us might have seen it years ago in the early days of her show. But it might have also come from one of her early cookbooks, because I have several of those as well.
No matter where I first got this, it has become one of our go to pumpkin recipes each fall.
This recipe is obviously not original to me. This is a Paula Deen recipe, but it is so good that I knew I had to share it with you.
This is one of those recipes that my family asks for over and over again. My daughter, who has a birthday in November, has requested this for her birthday cake many times.
My favorite way to make this is as bars in a jelly roll type of pan. But we have also made it in a 9×13 pan and as muffins. The recipe works well both of those ways. You just need to adjust the cooking time.
