20(ish)--- Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake

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
Serves 12

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
3 eggs
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.

Serve warm.


  1. Wee babe is cool! I am a blood relative that chocolate isn't a favorite either. ;)

  2. Ha! That is funny. My dad never liked chocolate either - so our family suffered! :)
