A great recipe to use up leftover pumpkin or just good as comfort food in winter with a hot chocolate.

Ingredients (makes 30 squares (depending how thick you cut them))

  • 1 packet chocolate cake mix
  • 250g pumpkin puree (smooth)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. Prepare a baking pan by lining it with baking paper. Preheat oven on 180C.
  2. Make the cake mix according to packet up until the step where you pour it into a baking pan.
  3. Mix the cinnamon through the pumpkin puree, making sure it is smooth. You may have to blitz it in a food processor. Layer the pumpkin puree and chocolate cake mix in alternating layers.
  4. Drag a toothpick across the top of the end product to create swirls through the brownie.
  5. Bake for approx 40-45 mins or until a skewer comes out clean.

  • Brownie’s are great to hide veggies in ! I make a brownie with grated raw sweet potato. Instead of sweet potato I use sometimes pumpkin, beetroot or beans. I prefer to make the brownie mixture myself.


  • I make a pumpkin fruit cake and it is delicious. I imagine the chocolate brownie would have a lovely texture with pumpkin in it. Thanks.


  • Such a unique recipe. Just won’t tell the hubby there’s pumpkin in there!


  • Looks awesome …and I was only thinking how wonderful the slice would be if you celebrated Halloween.
    Thanks for sharing.


  • Can you taste the pumpkin at all?


  • Wow, so easy. Thank you

    • Pumpkin is so versatile and really can be used in so many yummy recipes.


  • Must try this, looks like a great way to sneak veg in


  • Thanks – pumpkin and chocolate brownie sounds different and looks good. Will give it a go – do love brownies and pumpkin is good in baked goodies.


  • It’s different with the pumpkin puree! Sound’s easy to make!


  • ok, not too sure about this one.


  • sounds interesting, be good to have a taste!


  • I would neve have thought of that combination. I THINK IT MIGHT BE QUITE NICE ACTUALLY. After all the American pumpkin pie is sweet too if I AM NOT WRONG!


  • Wow what an interesting combination!
