These pumpkin cake-like "brownies" are made extra special with swirls of cream cheese batter throughout. This makes a fantastic autumn dessert, perfect for the holidays or just because you can.
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Butter and flour an 11x7-inch baking pan. Heat oven to 350 F.
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 2 eggs until light and creamy. Beat in pumpkin puree.
In another bowl, combine 1 cup of flour with baking powder, soda, salt, and spices. Slowly beat into the first mixture until well blended. Spread in prepared baking pan.
In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, 1 egg, confectioners' sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and 2 tablespoons flour. Beat for 1 to 2 minutes, until smooth and creamy. Spoon onto the pumpkin batter. Using a small narrow spatula or butter knife, swirl the cream cheese batter into the pumpkin batter.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
