Worked like a charm! :)
Something about the yellow cake base and the cinnamon and the crumble makes these almost like a coffee cake. I brought them for a breakfast potluck last week, but they would work well as a dessert bar too. Or really any meal. :)
Pumpkin Butter Bars
Makes about 24 bars
- 1 box yellow cake mix, 1 cup set aside
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 3 large eggs
- 1 jar pumpkin butter (as close to 13.5 oz as possible)
- 2 TBSP milk
- 1 TBSP flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour 13x9 baking pan. Divide cake mix, placing all but 1 cup in a large mixing bowl. Stir the melted butter and 1 egg into cake mix until combined.
Press into bottom of pan. In another bowl (or you can use the same one if you're lazy like me), mix pumpkin butter, 2 eggs and milk until combined.
Pour on top of pressed cake mixture. Lastly, stir together reserved 1 cup of cake mix with flour, sugar and cinnamon.
Add the softened butter and mix until crumbly (using a fork helps). Sprinkle over the top of the pumpkin layer.
Oops... I made a little mess!
Bake for about 35 minutes until golden brown. Cool and cut into squares.
Grab one for yourself before they're all gone!
