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

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

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).

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

Petals :: 52 Photos Project

Where I live the Bradford Pears have bloomed and blown and the Cherry Blossoms are in full blossom.  Even though that means our allergy season is now officially underway, I cannot help opening our windows every morning in hopes of hearing the birds singing to greet the day.  Springtime has conveniently coincided with my personal recovery process from knee surgery.  As I am slowly re-gaining mobility on crutches it seems an added encouragement that the weather is also improving and the trees are welcoming my return with their flowers. What a treat it would be to be able to put down my crutches in time for Easter Sunday and walk again on my own! (I am doubtful but one can hope.) Sharing with 52 Photos Project :: Petals

Saturdays are the perfect time for a little aimless web-wandering and here are few of my recent reads I'd like to recommend to you. The Wild Surrender of Motherhood by Carrie Ann Moss @Annapurna Living This new website launched this week and is absolutely lovely. Remember Carrie Ann Moss from the Matrix movies? Well she is now the founder and inspiration behind this blog.  Here is an excerpt of her vision for : FROM CARRIE-ANNE ... “To see womanhood through eyes of grace.”  My desire is to live in a world where nourishment is valued. I believe a nourished family will lead to a nourished world. I believe life is beautiful and that our divine purpose in this world is to nurture the earth by respecting it and being grateful for what it provides us.
