Pumpkin Cranberry Bars

My aunt-in-law gave me this great recipe and I’ve adapted it by adding cranberries and powdered sugar frosting; although the bars a great without a frosting too!


1          cup flour
1          teaspoon baking powder
½         teaspoon baking soda
1          teaspoon baking spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves etc.)
½         teaspoon salt
1          cup dried cranberries or other dried fruit
2          eggs
¾         cups sugar
½         cup canola oil
1          cup pumpkin puree


1          cup powdered sugar
½         teaspoon vanilla
1          tablespoon milk

Preheat oven to 350 °.

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, baking spice and salt. Stir in cranberries; set aside.

Using an electric mixer beat together eggs, sugar and oil; add pumpkin puree and mix until just blended. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined.

Spread mixture into a 9 x 11” pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.


In a small bowl, add powdered sugar and vanilla. Drizzle in milk, stirring until you have a smooth mixture.

Cut the bars and place them on a cooling rack over a piece of parchment paper. Drizzle with the powdered sugar frosting and let set for a few minutes.
