Chocolate Pumpkin Brownies

Fall is in the air!  There’s nothing that says autumn more than baking something pumpkin-y.  Here is a recipe from one of our favorite guest bloggers, the Mix and Match Mama!

Ingredients:

  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 (12 oz) can pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 9×9 inch baking dish.
  2. Melt chocolate and butter in heat-proof bowl set over a pan of simmering water (see pic below) stirring occasionally until smooth.
  3. Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl, set aside.  In second bowl, beat sugar, eggs and vanilla with electric mixer until well combined and fluffy (about 3 minutes).  Beat in flour mixture until combined.
  4. Divide batter between two bowls.  Stir chocolate mixture  into one of the bowls and then pumpkin, oil and cinnamon into second bowl.  Transfer half of chocolate batter into greased baking dish, smooth.  Add half of pumpkin mixture on top of chocolate in baking dish.  Repeat with remaining chocolate batter, repeat with remaining pumpkin batter (you should have four layers total).
  5. Using a butter knife, swirl the two batters to create a marbled effect.  Bake 40-45 minutes.  Cool in pan, cut.  Makes about 16 squares.

    These look great, but is there a typo with the amount of pumpkin? The smallest can of pumpkin out there is 15oz, not 12oz. Or… do you mean to use just 12oz of the 15oz can? Can’t wait to make these tonight! :-)
