This recipe makes good brownies, but they taste like normal brownies. It was disappointing. I really hoped they would taste like pumpkin and chocolate, but instead they just tasted like chocolate. I think the recipe just needs some adjusting to make it a bit more pumpkiny (yes I know pumpkiny is not a word). I plan on trying this again and messing around with the recipe a bit. I definitely think it has potential. It's just not quite right for me yet.
I think it's wrong for someone to screw-up a recipe, then give it a low rating. If you don't stick to the original recipe, then it isn't their recipe, it's yours. If you are a bad cook, don't blame anybody but yourself. Follow the instructions, people.
Loved these pumpkin brownies!!! I have made them a couple of times and always love them! My husband, who claims he doesn't like brownies, ate up a lot of these! I love that these have no oil in the recipe! I did not make any changes to them either, and my kids loved them as well. If you like brownies, you will love these! You cannot even tell there is pumpkin in them!
I did not like the dish, although I really do love pumpkin. They were a little bit underdone (I live in Bogota which is at 8000 feet, so it's hard to tell) and too sweet (we used milk chocolate instead of unsweetened because unsweetened doesn't exist here, and forgot to reduce the sugar). We also had to use home made squash puree instead of canned pumpkin, so that may be another reason for the funny taste. I won't be making these again.
