If you are searching for a treat, these Pumpkin Spice Brownies are delicious and satisfying. There's no way you can stop at one!
I call these pumpkin brownies subtle, as the taste of the pumpkin is not overwhelming, but the texture is wonderful, particularly with the addition of small chunks of dark chocolate which everyone seems to love.
They perfectly melt into the brownie and there are a few bits that still retain a slight crunch. You can use chocolate chips or even white chocolate chips to give a different color and taste.
Being able to create new brownie recipes is always a lot of fun. Truthfully, almost anything can be added to your brownie mix. Nuts, toffee...you name it, if you have a craving for it, you can give it a go.
This is why I love this pumpkin spice brownie recipe so very much because it gives that taste of pumpkin while not being overwhelming or overshadowing to the brownie.
I've even tasted where some people add spiciness to their brownies like chilies to give it a kick! Anything goes when you are cooking brownies!
How To Cook PUMPKIN SPICE BROWNIES
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tbs cocoa powder or drinking chocolate
- 1 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Two-thirds cup of soft brown sugar
- ½ cup of pumpkin puree
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tbs vegetable oil
- Third cup of dark chocolate, cut into very small pieces or chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 340°F/170°C/Gas mark 4. Line a 9 x 9in/23 x 23cm baking dish with foil, or spray with vegetable oil (we find it best to line with foil).
Whisk together flour, baking powder, cocoa, and all the spices. In a separate bowl, beat together the brown sugar, pumpkin, eggs and oil. An electric mixer is better, but if you are able to whisk quickly with a hand whisk, this will suffice as long as you combine all the ingredients thoroughly.
Fold in the chocolate pieces, so they are evenly distributed through the mixture.
Pour into the baking dish and bake for 20 minutes or until the centre is firm and a knife inserted into the brownie mix comes out clean. Leave to cool.
Once cool, use a sharp knife to cut into slices. Keep a bowl of warm water near you to dip the knife to ensure clean cuts.
Serve dusted with icing sugar if you want, with fresh strawberries, cream, clotted cream or delicious and ‘very’ vanilla ice cream.
Variations of Pumpkin Spice Brownies
My pumpkin spiced brownies are delicious but there are lots of variations to the recipe which also taste amazing! You can make these vegan to suit those on that particular diet.
You can also make ones with fudge! Fudgy pumpkin spice brownies would be amazing. Maybe I will add some small pieces of my pumpkin fudge to my next batch.
