Pumpkin Spice Mini Cakes

With Halloween around the corner I was inspired to bake something pumpkin-y and I found this recipe over here
and they are so yummy. Sure, the cream cheese frosting is a little sparse but, that's okay with me because I don't need a ton of frosting.
I modified using walnuts rather than pecans and I went with the dark raisins rather then golden since I had those on hand. I also did one cup of sugar and one cup of brown sugar instead of 2 cups of sugar.
The texture is very cake-like and so it's like having tiny bits of cake. Who doesn't like miniature cakes, right?
Hope everyone's weekend is shaping up nicely. So far, we had a date night on Friday (I started a babysitting swap with my friend Malin and I got to go first) and went to see The Darjeeling Limited which was very enjoyable. The setting is great and I liked the story and characters. Saturday, was just Whole Foods, knitting, and splashing in puddles at the park. It ended with making spinach and cheese empanadas, arugula salad (which is one of my favorite foods) and these here pumpkin bars. Today, we are headed to the local Harvest Festival geared for family fun.

Can't wait to see that movie. I've enjoyed all Wes Anderson's films.
