METHOD:

Butter the pan, line with parchment paper and set aside

Preheat oven to 350 F

Brownies

Melt the butter and chocolate in 30 sec bursts in microwave, stir and let it cool

Sift the dry ingredients, flour, cocoa powder and salt and set aside

Beat the eggs, vanilla and sugar till lighter in color and fluffy

Add the melted butter and chocolate and mix

Add the dry ingredients and mix

Reserve 1/4 cup of the batter and pour the rest into the pan and smooth out the top

Pumpkin cheesecake

Beat the cream cheese, vanilla and sugar till nice and fluffy

Add the egg and mix

Reserve just 2 Tbsps of this white cheesecake mix for swirling later (optional)

Add pumpkin puree and spices, cinnamon, all spice, ginger, nutmeg and salt

Mix till combined

Add the 1/4 cup flour and mix

Add a few drops of orange food color and mix

Pour this batter into the pan over the brownie batter and smooth out

Add spoons of the reserved brownie and white cheesecake batter on top and swirl with a toothpick or skewer

Bake for about 35 mins, may take a bit longer but do not over bake!! to check a skewer inserted in the middle should be fairly clean, remember it keeps cooking after you take it out with residual heat

Let it cool in the pan

Remove from pan and cut with a sharp knife dipped in hot water and wiped with a paper towel

Add googly eyes if Halloween themed. Attach with icing or just water or water mixed with a bit of icing sugar



Enjoy!
