  1. I absolutely LOVED this recipe!!! Rich, moist and flavorful... When you finished one of these "brownies", you just had to eye the pan and ask yourself... Should I eat just ONE more??? In one word... deeeeelicious! Thanks for posting !!! PS But I have to ask.... How did a chef called Bugstomper come up with the name??? =) Curious Barb
  2. Nice spicy taste. I agree that it's not exactly what one would expect from a brownie. It's more like gingerbread. The amount of batter didn't look like much for a 9x13 pan, so I wound up baking it in a 9-inch square pan, still for 30 minutes. It came out fine, with a soft, cakey texture. I also used regular flour, as I didn't have any whole wheat.
  3. This was superb! If you're looking for snacks that are on the healthier side, this one fits the bill. If you're looking for a traditional brownie though, you may be disappointed cause I found it more cakey than the fudgey brownies I imagine! I didn't have any nutmeg, so I substituted pumpkin pie spice and omitted the nuts cause no one here is fond of them and it was magnificent with a glob of ultra low-fat cool whip. Thanks Bugs!
  4. More of a spice cake than a brownie, in our opinion. The pumpkin flavor isn't very pronounced. We all love spice cake though, so we did like them. They'd probably be even better with a thin layer of cream cheese icing.
  5. Not was I was expecting. The flavor was nice, but they were dry. I love that fact this recipe uses whole wheat flour and calls for very little oil. If I make these again, I will reduce the oven temp and add a tad more buttermilk. Thanks for posting.


  1. Made these on Thanksgiving and used brown sugar splenda so we would have a sugar free dessert and they turned out really well. They had a great pumpkiny / spicy flavor. Used applesauce instead of the oil. Also took Jo Ann's suggestion and made then in a 8x8 pan. Ended up cooking them for almost an hour to get the center to be completely cooked, but the extra cooking time didn't seem to dry them out any. The only resemblence to a brownie though was the square shape. More like a cake or bar. Great dessert!
