Pumpkin Swirl Brownies


I have been baking and cooking like crazy the past couple of weeks while trying to get all my pumpkin spice recipes re-tested (LOL) and posted ( I don't really need to re-test them, that's just my excuse to make and EAT all the good stuff)!
This recipe was my family's favorite of the week. I liked it too...a lot...I mean really a lot...

PUMPKIN SWIRL BROWNIES
1 box brownie mix 
2 eggs
3/4 c. sugar plus 2 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 c. canned pumpkin
(from a 15 oz. can)
1/4 c. vegetable oil
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare brownie mix according to package directions for a 9 x 13 pan. Pour batter into a 9x13 pan  that has been lightly sprayed with non stick baking spray (do not bake yet).
Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla on medium speed until light and fluffy.  Add the pumpkin and oil and mix until well combined.
Combine all the dry ingredients together, then mix in with the pumpkin mix. Combine well. Spoon large dollops of the pumpkin mix over the brownie batter, then using a knife or spatula, swirl back and forth thru the 2 batters to mix them together slightly. Be careful not to over swirl (whatever that means-ha ha).


Bake for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool completely, then cut into squares.

Looks amazing. I'm definitely gonna try it. Just so I'm sure: how many mL's (I'm in Canada) or ounces are in one "can" of pumpkin puree?

Thanks! :)

Hi Heather!

The can size is 15 oz. I didn't realize I had left the size out of the original post. Thanks for pointing it out!
I'm fixing it right now
