Delicious and easy! For my non-dairy diet, I frosted these with a quick maple frosting from The Joy of Cooking. Moist, well received by friends at a meeting.

These are great - very moist and delicious. It REALLY does make 72 BROWNIES - IF YOU USE THE CORRECT PAN (15X10). Thanks!!

Using a 12" x10" pan this took close to 50 minutes to bake all the way through but smells relish, can't wait to try it once it cools enough to frost!

Love to make these for the fall, moist and the frosting marries the two perfectly. Family is always asking me make them.

Try cutting flour down by a quarter cup to give more of a brownie texture. I sometimes have to add a quarter cup to brownie mixes to make them more cake like. Maybe the opposite will work here.

I used one less egg as another reviewer suggested and it was still more of a cake than a brownie. However, it was very good and got lots of compliments at two different gatherings. I used Cool Whip Cream Cheese Frosting which saved a lot of time. This is definitely a keeper!

Cut the sugar by a quarter cup and I think it gave them a stronger pumpkin flavor. Everyone enjoyed them!

I made these for work. I left off the icing because I don't care for icing. They loved them! Customers called back for the recipe. They are more like cake than a brownie but so good. I'll make these more often!

Made this for a potluck dinner. Had only a few people take it. After eating a few bites they didn't finish it. I try it myself and was not that impressed with the flavor. Needless to say I won't be making it again.
