Pumpkin Brownies

Hi everyone! I am back and venturing into the kitchen and my stomach is as good as new. The first thing I have been hungry for is sweets. I usually make these twice in the month of October only. My family and friends love these things. I hope you do too!

Pumpkin Brownies

1 15 oz can of pumpkin

1 cup vegetable oil

4 eggs

2 cups sugar

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat together eggs, oil, pumpkin and sugar. Stir in remaining ingredients until evenly mixed. Pour into a greased and floured 9x13 inch baking dish. Bake for
30 minutes or until center springs back when touched.
This is great with just Cool Whip. Since I have had such a sweet tooth I frosted it with Cream Cheese frosting..1 8oz cream cheese, 2 cups powdered sugar, a dash vanilla and about 5 tablespoons milk. I was totally winging it on that frosting.....

This tastes just like fall....

I am showing you guys this picture for two reasons.

1. This is what your batter should look like.

2. I wanted to show off my new Halloween spatula!

Sometimes it really is necessary to really "grease and flour" the pan. But this is one recipe you can use Bakers Joy on. This stuff is fantastic. It is actually the grease and the flour in one spray.

The finished product. Yummy!
