Pumpkin Brownies

These tasty things were somewhere between a brownie and cake... Really thick, super delicious. I saw a recipe of sorts for something similar and thought of following it, but I made so many adjustments and changed ingredients so many times, this one can be safely labeled as an inspired original.

1 c. Whole wheat flour
1 1/2 c. white flour
1 1/4 t. baking powder
1/4 t. ground red pepper
1/2 t. salt
1 1/4 c. sugar
5 eggs... I know, SO many!
1 1/4 c. mashed pumpkin (or canned pumpkin)
2 1/2 T. liquid (I used a combination of water and oil
2 T. cocoa powder
1t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg

Mix the first five ingredients together. Beat the eggs and sugar together for about 5 minutes until fluffy.

Add this to the flour mixture.

Divide the batter into two bowls. I made the mistake of an unequal split and got more pumpkin batter than chocolate. The pumpkin part is delicious, but I'd recommend an equal split, or a bit more chocolate than pumpkin.

Add the pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg to one bowl, and the liquid and cocoa powder to the other.
Layer and marble the batters into a 9 x 9 square pan or a 10 inch round pan... don't know if they make those in America. Sprinkle chocolate on top if you want. Bake at 350 Fahrenheit for 40-45 minutes.
