Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

Can you feel Fall catching up to summer?   It's in the slant of the sun in the golden afternoon, the slight coolness to the evening breeze, the first leaves turning every so lightly yellow around the edges.  It is the beginning of the cozy season and every September I get antsy for it to arrive a little sooner.


One of the ways I attempt to lure Autumn to my door is by baking something cinnamony and comforting.  This pumpkin treat looks like October, tastes like November and makes the perfect September after-school snack.


Deep, dark chocolate chips snuggle into their moist blanket of pumpkin and spice.


Try it with milk or strong black coffee.  It will not disappoint!


Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

INGREDIENTS
1 2/3 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 heaping Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 c. dark chocolate chips

PROCESS
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.  Spray bundt pan with Pam.
3.  Melt butter in a medium bowl and set aside to cool.
4.  In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, spice, soda, baking powder and salt.
5.  Whisk pumpkin puree into the melted butter.  Add eggs and whisk until well blended.
6.  Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients.  Add chocolate chips and stir until well combined.
7.  Spread batter evenly in bundt pan.
8.  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

Note - The same batter can be made in muffin tins.  Reduce baking time to 20 minutes.

  9. I found you through the 100 days link up and I'm so glad I did. Your cake looks sooo yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe. We're big fans of pumpkin (my oldest is a Halloween baby) and chocolate (she simply adores chocolate, but who doesn't, right? Her sister doesn't like chocolate....crazy).
