It’s just so pretty!

Now you may remember that last week I made Homemade Pumpkin Puree from that little guy. And I had a few people ask me what to make with the puree! So as promised, here is the first of many tasty treats.

The thing about MOST of my recipes is they don’t take weird ingredients. I do not keep out of the ordinary stuff in the house, and I even tend to make random substitutions if I do not have any or enough of something.

 

Step 1 – Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and prepare your pan. This time around I used a throwaway foil pan because I made these to take to work.

 

Step 2 – Beat 4 eggsΒ and 1 1/4 cups of white sugar.

Step 3 – Add 1 cup of homemade (or canned…I won’t judge) pumpkin puree. Stir until well blended. Feel free to recruit assistance as needed! Whenever I cook I tend to attract helpers…cleaning notsomuch!

Step 4 – Sprinkle and stir in the cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, and vanilla! I NEVER measure my cinnamon or vanilla. Sorry. I just cannot bring myself to do it πŸ™‚

I say roughly because I was running low on cocoa powder and may have shorted myself because of another recipe that I made (and that failed…miserably!). Again, I recruited assistance with stirring.

Step 6 – Pour and smooth the batter into the ever fancy tossable foil pan. I got mine 3/.99 at Publix. LOVE it!

Step 8 – Scoop out 1/2 a container of vanilla frosting into a bowl.

Step 9 – Mix in a heaping spoonful of pumpkin puree!

Step 10 – Sprinkle and mix in our good buddy, cinnamon.

Step 11-Β You are going to notice that your frosting is a little thin/runny. This is because of adding the pumpkin to it. I put mine in the fridge until the brownies cool and it solidified right up!

Step 12 – DECORATE AND EAT!! It’s amazing how my little helpers seem to come out of the woodwork for this step too! I take credit for the decor of the first picture, but after that I put full responsibility on the 6, 4, and 3 year old that run the house!

    Wow. Those look amazing. I may try and veganize them – without eggs. I’ve heard flaxseed and oil can do the trick. Wish me luck.

    • mrsdmeeks

      I use flaxmeal eggs in my baking all the time πŸ™‚

      1 TBSP of flaxmeal + 2-3 TBSP of water mixed and let it sit for a few minutes before using!

      good luck, and let me know how they turn out.
