Pumpkin Swirl Brownies

|Pumpkin Swirl brownies....ummm...yum|
6 oz (6 squares) semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped (or 1 cup chocolate chips)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups solid-pack pumpkin
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F and butter an 8×8-inch or 9×9-inch baking pan.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate over medium-low heat, stirring until smooth.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, eggs and vanilla for a few minutes, until fluffy; beat in the flour just until combined.
Divide the batter between two medium bowls (about 2 cups per bowl) and stir the chocolate mixture into one bowl. Stir the pumpkin, oil, cinnamon and nutmeg into the other bowl. Transfer half of chocolate batter to prepared pan, smooth the top and gently spread with half the pumpkin batter. Drop large spoonfuls of chocolate and pumpkin batter on top, then gently swirl the two batters with the tip of a knife (just a table knife, so you don’t scrape the bottom of the pan with a sharp tip) to create a marbled effect.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, until just set. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Makes 16 brownies.
Karl's reaction: You never bake. These are frickin good! I had two pieces for breakfast. So good.
My take: LOVE THESE. For one, they aren't super sweet. AND they are so moist. Really good. Will be baking these again!
