The Ultimate Pumpkin Bars!

The Ultimate Pumpkin Bars! ~ Delicious Cake Batter Crust, Dreamy Pumpkin Pie Filling Topped with a Delicious Cake Topping! Ditch the other Pumpkin Bar Recipe, Because It’s Been Replaced!


We have Knock You Naked Bars, Crack Dip, and Crack Potatoes, so why not Orgasmic Pumpkin Bars? Well, they used to be called Orgasmic Pumpkin Bars and then I renamed them because people didn’t like that name, so it’s your choice. Call them what you want! As long as you go straight to the kitchen and make these easy pumpkin bars!

I find it quite interesting that whenever I use a “descriptive” title for one of my recipes it immediately becomes one of my most popular recipes. Now if  I would have just called these “Pumpkin Bars” would you have been as likely to come on over and check this recipe out? I think not.

These yummy little treat comes from my sister-in-law, who got it from her mother, who got it from a co-worker and after that I lost track of the recipe trail. If it’s made it through that many people I think it’s a given that you need to make it too!


If you are looking for a simple Thanksgiving treat go ahead and make these. It’s a twist on pumpkin so if you are tired of plain old pumpkin pie these would be perfect. Plus the ingredients are all normal and I’m guessing you will have most, if not all, of them in your pantry!

Ingredients Needed for Pumpkin Bar Recipe!

  • Yellow Cake Mix
  • Eggs
  • Butter
  • Pumpkin
  • Milk
  • Brown sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla
  • Sugar

P.S. My hubby is already on his second bar….I think someone likes them!

      Does your orgasmic pumpkin square reipe use regular milk or evaporated milk? Most other pumpkin square recipes call for evaporated milk. Yours just says “milk”. Can I use ⅔ cup regular whole milk?

      • Julie Evink

        I used fat free milk. I’m not sure how whole milk would work, I would think it would be fine, but I’ve never tested it.

        • Kaulana

          Thank you for your reply Julie! My Orgasmic Pumpkin Bars came out delicious but I think I have to cut the baking time in my oven to only 50 min because I baked it for 60 min and the bottom cake portion came out really dark and almost burnt. Can’t wait to make it again for my family!!!! They LOVED it! Thanks again for your delicious recipe!

    • Deborah W.

      This sounds so good! I am making it today! Yum!

    • Danielle Green

      Well, these simply look amazing! Will be making them soon!

    • Malinda

      I have got to try these!!!! They look sooooo good!!

    • Valentina @Valentina's Corner

      Ultimate Pumpkin Bars for sure. My kids are going to love making these together.

    • Melissa Howell

      Love this super easy dessert idea! My family would love it!

    • Michele

      Can you substitute the sugar with applesauce?

      • Julie Evink

        I have never tried it this way so I can’t guarantee the results!

      • Jenna Bates

        I’m always substituting applesause in place of water and or oil and vanilla coffee cream in place of milk in pumpkin recipes and adding cinnamon and vanilla! So, I’ll try it in place of the sugar and let you know if they still come out the same!

    • Dolly

      Do these freeze well?
