Last week, we tried these cream cheese pumpkin squares from Heartway Farms on YouTube, and boy, it did not disappoint. The pumpkin squares are moist, flavorful, and easy to make. I’ll definitely make these the whole fall season, serving them at every potluck and gathering. Try this recipe today and see for yourself! Watch the video below to learn the step by step instructions.



  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground clove
  • 1/2 tsp allspice

For the Frosting:

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Next, to your stand mixer bowl, add four eggs and 2 cups of sugar. Beat until combined. After this, add 1 cup of vegetable oil, 2 cups of pumpkin puree, 2 tsp baking soda, 1 tbsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp ground cloves, and 1/2 tsp allspice while continuously whisking everything together. Lastly, fold in 2 cups of flour until batter forms. Once done, pour the batter into an ungreased baking pan, spreading it evenly across the pan. Place it in the preheated 350 degrees F oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 2

In the meantime, make the cream cheese frosting. To the bowl of your stand mixer, add 8 oz cream cheese and 1/2 cup softened butter. Beat until smooth. Next, add 3 cups of powdered sugar and 1 tbsp vanilla extract. Beat at high speed until the consistency becomes light and fluffy. Back to the pumpkin cake, once it’s done baking, remove it from the oven and cool it completely. After this, spread the cream cheese mixture over the top, sprinkle some ground cinnamon (optional), then cut it into squares. Serve and enjoy!
