Dry Ingredients


Wet Ingredients


Cream Cheese Frosting



  • Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Grease a 15x10x1 inch baking sheet with baking spay. Set aside.
  • Take 1 tablespoon of flour. Sprinkle flour over the dried cherries and shake off any excess. (This will prevent the cherries from clustering on the bottom.) Set aside.

Pumpkin Batter

  • Combine dry ingredients, spices, and wet ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer and beat on medium speed until well blended. Fold in the flour-dusted dried cherries.
  • Pour the batter into the pre-greased baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Use a wooden toothpick to check for doneness. Cool in pan.

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Blend softened cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until creamy.
  • Once the cake has cooled spread a thin layer of cream cheese frosting. Slice into 24 rectangles (or 48 if you like to have bite-sized pumpkin bars). Serve and enjoy,
