Chocolate Pumpkin Brownies

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!


  • 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
  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.

    Well, when I heard the name of them my face scrunched up a little. But then when I saw the photo, they look great! I’m going to have to give them a try.

    These sound amazing. I’ve never had brownies like these before. I do love pumpkin too, so I bet these are good.

    This sounds so good! I have had pumpkin muffins with chocolate chips before and was shocked at how well the pumpkin and chocolate combine. Can’t wait to try!
