Now that the announcement is done, we can start with the succulent and tasty recipe!
85 gr - vegan butter or margarine
125 gr - brown sugar
130 gr - pumpkin puree
125 gr - flour
45 gr - cocoa powder
1 teaspoon - baking powder
1 teaspoon - vanilla extract
1 teaspoon - cinnamon
½ teaspoon - nutmeg
¼ teaspoon - salt
As you can see in the picture, our pumpkin chocolate brownies are going to have 2 colors. To get these 2 different halloweeny colors, we have to prepare the dough in 2 different bowls. In the first bowl, we are going to prepare the orange batter, and in the second one, the chocolate batter.
Step one - Orange batter
We are going to mix the following ingredients together: Vegan butter or margarine, brown sugar, 85 grams of pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
Watch out, we are going to use only 85 grams of pumpkin puree out of 130 grams since the rest of the pumpkin puree is going to be used for the other dough (the chocolate one).
If you don’t want to buy pumpkin puree, you can always do it yourself. You just have to boil the pumpkin without the peel until it softens. Then, let it cool and mash it until you get the puree texture.
Once all the ingredients are mixed, we are done with the orange batter! It’s a thick dough, so the best idea is to use a mixer to beat all the ingredients.
Step two - Chocolate batter
For the chocolate layer, we are going to mix the rest of the pumpkin puree (45 grams) with the cocoa powder until we get a dough with a strong chocolate color.
Step three - Put all the layers together
Once we have greased the cake mold with margarine or vegan butter, we are going to add the orange dough first and then the brown one. This action is going to help us having two different colors in the same brownie!
When the brownie is in the mold, place it in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 30 minutes.
