RECIPE: Pumpkin Swirled Brownies

This is a super easy recipe to make using boxed brownies or your own easy homemade brownies.

First you'll need to mix up your brownies (according to the box directions for 13x9 pan size or according to your homemade recipe).  Pour the batter into a prepared dish and set aside.

Now for the pumpkin part of the brownies...

Pumpkin Swirled Brownies (adapted from Under the High Chair)
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar plus 2 Tablespoons
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla on high until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.  Add pumpkin and oil, beat until combined.  Mix spices, flour, baking powder and salt together in separate bowl, then fold into the pumpkin mixture.  Once it's combined, spoon large dollops onto the top of the prepared brownie batter.  Using a spoon or spatula, carefully swirl the pumpkin into the brownie batter.  Do not over swirl, you want it to look pretty when you slice into it.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-45 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  

This is so good and super easy!  They look really pretty when cut and the pumpkin flavor combined with the chocolate is delightful!

Can't wait to try the other recipes on my list!

Oh my goodness, what a perfect fall treat! We make homemade brownies about three times a month. They're such an easy, yummy treat. One of my family's favorites.

I have six small pie pumpkins from my garden and know exactly what I am going to do with them! Thanks for sharing this.

This would be a great post to link to Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays.

Oh, I hadn't thought to do this. Would sweet potato work? I usually use that in place of pumpkin. It probably doesn't have the pumpkin taste though, I could probably add pumpkin pie spice. I'll try it!

Looks like a delicious and seasonal way to transform a "boxed" product. Yum!
