Pumpkin Angel Food Cake Bars

 Is it finally Friday?  It’s been a busy week and I’m ready to relax and veg out.  Anyone else?  Do me a favor  and make these bars, then veg out.  They require just three ingredients {not including the glaze, but it’s so easy it doesn’t count!}.  One box of angel food cake mix, one 15 ounce can of pumpkin, and some pumpkin pie spice.  That’s it!   
 I really like angel food cake.  But let me just tell you I really really like pumpkin angel food cake. Cut into little bars and covered in a little pumpkin spiced glaze- it’s amazing!

 You still get that same spongy consistency of normal angel food cake, it’s just a bit more dense with just a hint of pumpkin flavor.  You can make these without the glaze and they’re actually a low-fat treat.  But I wasn’t in the mood for low-fat.  I saw this glaze on these pumpkin cinnamon rolls and thought it would be perfect on these bars.  
I mean, how dreamy is that glaze? I wanted to drink it.

    These look really good. BTW, making an angel food cake from scratch is pretty easy, just be sure you get all the yolk into a separate container, but the bigger bonus is that you can control how much sugar goes into it.

    I saw this on Pinterest and made them wiht my niece tonight! They were really good and she loved them too! If I figured it correctly they are 90 calories a piece(i cute them into 24 squares) and only 2 grams of fat in the whole pan!!!!! Thanks so much for the recipe!

    Hello – just a quick question. Do I make the Angel Food Cake according to the box instructions? Or do I use the pumpkin instead of the other cake ingredients? Thank you!

    What brand of Angel Food Cake mix do you use? I know it doesn’t matter in regards to the recipe, but I’d just like to know. Also, This sounds SO good! I have a disease that causes me to be fed by a feeding tube because my body cannot handle or process “regular” food, but typically I’m able to tolerate a small slice of Angel food cake here and there. I’ve been CRAVING pumpkin but I can no longer eat any of the typical pumpkin treats, I think this just might be my answer! I’m so excited to try it!

    My angel food cake mix has the egg whites separate from the mix. Should i just mix everything together for this cake?

    Hi. Thanks for being here. I’m going to try these with white, vanilla or yellow cake mix instead. They look good & the glaze seems good too. How about Maple Glaze too, to change it up now & then? I’m signing up!

    I followed this recipe exactly and they were terrible, I was so disappointed. I am a seasoned baker so I don’t know what went wrong. I even made cream cheese frosting to doctor them up, but no takers. Make these and sample them before you serve them to guests!

    The cake is really good but I don’t like the glaze, at all, so now I need to figure out a different glaze or frosting to put on it.
