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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Steps to Make It

  1. Butter and flour an 11x7-inch baking pan. Heat oven to 350 F.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
