I swear this is my last pumpkin recipe of the season.
Wee babe approved- minus the chocolate chips. What??? She spits them out. I have given birth to a phenom. I know there are a few of you out there. You being females who do not like chocolate. But I've never met one in person, let alone shared blood with one.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup pure pumpkin puree
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup + 3 Tbsp cake flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
10 oz dark chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, mix together butter, sugars, and pumpkin until smooth. Add in vanilla and eggs, adding one at a time, and beating until smooth.
In a separate bowl, mix together flours, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt.
Add dry ingredients to wet until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Pour batter into a 9 x 13" greased baking dish and spread evenly. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Allow to cook before slicing into 12 even slices.
