pumpkin brownies – perfect for large parties

Ok, I promise, this will be the last pumpkin recipe for this year. Even though my fall really hard because I love pumpkin so much and still do not have the Christmas spirit. With the thought that on Sunday is already the first Advent, I can not really make friends. Am I really the only one who is it so?

Therefore, there is in my Kürbis-Crème Brûlée-Pie these delicious Pumpkin Brownies (Original recipe from Sweet Dreams 3/14, light adapted)Which are now also become very popular in my circle. The best part is that they even taste better two days later! So perfect if you have a large party, is fully employed and the preparatory phase in the kitchen is several days.

What happens maybe once a year for many, is with us once a month felt the case. So that's just in a typical Italian extended family. A “Small” in our celebration with parents, grandparents and siblings is about 15 people. At a birthday 25 people are not uncommon, and these are not explicitly invited, but – as is usual with us – simply come.

Sure, there are at such celebrations is always something to eat, both a main course with appropriate side dishes, as well as several desserts. What may sound for one or the other like a horror scenario for me meanwhile no problem. For such occasions I always create a selection of dishes that can be prepared with some previously little effort. Organization is everything I say because only!
If interest on your part is how so mastered a celebration with little stress, like leave me a comment, then all I can write a separate article – I will not go beyond the scope yes 😉

Exactly for such an occasion, I have baked these brownies, which are a highlight among guests due to the orange marbling at the first sight!
