I love cooking in the kitchen with friends. Today Natalie came over and we made Pumpkin bars, Pumpkin pancakes and Orange Chicken. The Pumpkin bars and Orange Chicken were DELICIOUS. I can't wait to make both of them again. The pumpkin pancakes were good but they needed more pumpkin.
1 pkg. (2 layer size) spice cake mix
1/2 c. butter or margarine, melted
1 cup canned pumpkin (not pie filling)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. grated orange peel
1/2 cup chopped pecans
dash of salt
Reserve 2/3 cup dry cake mix.
In large bowl combine remaining cake mix, butter and 1 of the eggs; mix well. Pat into greased 13x9x 2-inch baking pan.
Combine reserved cake mix, pumpkin, sugar, remaining 2 eggs, orange peel and dash of salt. Beat at medium speed on electric mixer for 1 to 2 minutes. Pour over partially baked layer. Top with nuts.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
Cool; cut into bars. Refrigerate.
*** next time try yellow cake mix
