Pumpkin Brownies That Are Simply Sinful !



I want to thank all of you who wrote to me in the last few days. I missed each of YOU TOO! I just read on another blog that the author was ‘missing in action’ for awhile as she was also unable to post on her blog either . . . I thought that was humorous! Life does get busier at times, doesn’t it?

Well, before you know it, the holidays will be here. So I wanted to share a superb, incredibly cinnamon-y dessert recipe with all of you. I have never given this recipe away to anyone but my kids. I literally had to PRY it out of a friend when I lived in Scottsdale, Arizona back in the ’80s.

My mother says that these pumpkin brownies are simply sinful and that she just can’t stop eating them! Personally, I think these are even better than pumpkin pie. These little delights have 3 layers of yumminess: a soft cake-y crust, a very pumpkin pie-like center, and and oh-so-cinnamony-crumb topping. And oh, yes, your kitchen smells better than any of those expensive scented candles! You be the judge if you decide to make them.

Pumpkin Brownies

What You Need:

  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 jumbo egg, beaten
  • 1 small can pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 jumbo eggs, beaten
  • 2/3 cup milk (I use whole or 2% milk)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter

Instructions

    In an ungreased square baking pan, combine the following:
  • the yellow cake mix --- SAVE one (1) cup and set aside for the brownie topping!
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 beaten egg
  • Blend these together and PRESS into the baking pan to form the 'crust' of the brownies.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, combine the following:
  • the can of pumpkin
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 beaten jumbo eggs
  • the milk
  • Blend well and pour over the 'crust' layer.
  • In a small bowl, combine the following:
  • the cup of cake mix that was previously set aside
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • This is very gum-my, so break it up and sprinkle this on the top of the pumpkin layer.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.
  • .
  • Serve alone, with vanilla ice cream, or caramel sauce drizzled on top

  4. These kind of reminds me of a pumpkin dump cake I used to make many years ago. I loved it, though it’s sinful. This version looks easy to make, and I don’t want to know how sinful this one is. It looks absolutely tempting and divine. Oooh, I’d definitely love this one.

  5. This reminds me of pumpkin cake that’s made with a yellow cake mix, pumpkin and then drizzled butter on top. The preparation is a little different, but similar flavors. Either way, this looks tasty!

  6. Wow, a very special recipe that I know tastes great! Thanks for sharing. Love the place setting too!

  7. Oh this does look absolutely sinful! I adore desserts that are full of cinnamon, and I like the novelty of pumpkin and chocolate combined.
