Servings 20large slices
9 x 9 inch square cake tin
250gunsalted butterat room temperature
200gsoft brown sugar
120gplain flour / all-purpose flour
pinch of salt
2teaspoonsmixed spice(pumpkin pie spice)
Line and lightly grease a 9-inch x 9-inch cake tin with greaseproof paper.
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/160 fan/350ºF.
Melt the chocolate and butter in a microwave in short bursts or over hot water. Once melted set aside to cool.
Whisk the sugars, vanilla and eggs with extra egg yolk until light and fluffy. (the extra yolk really helps get a crisp top to the brownie).
Add the slightly cooled melted chocolate and mix together.
Sieve in the flour, a pinch of salt, baking powder and the cocoa powder and mix until combined.
Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tin.
In a bowl mix the pumpkin puree with your choice of spices. I go for cinnamon for these but all those iconic winter spices and pumpkin pie spices work.
Add dollops of the pumpkin to the brownie mix.
Using the back of a spoon pull the pumpkin in to the chocolate. This way you get lovely brownies with strong areas of pumpkin. You can mix them in more if you would like.
Bake for 40-50 minutes in the middle of the oven. Add an extra 10 if you want it to have a firm set.
Remove from the tin and allow to cool on a wire wrack for at least a few seconds before cutting in and enjoying.
•Enjoy when it's still warm with ice cream or cream.•Once cooked and cooled you can wrap the pieces up and put them in the freezer.•Adjust the spices to your taste.•A great recipe for Halloween party food.
