Chocolate Pumpkin Cake!
This is by far my favorite fall dessert!! This chocolate pumpkin cake is SO delicious and moist! It is easy to make and will have you going back for seconds! I love to serve this cake on Thanksgiving, but usually make it a few times during the fall for dinner parties and to make for guests. I always pair a big cup of coffee with my slice. :-)
-1 cup canned organic pumpkin (not pumpkin pie)
-1/2 cup salted butter (softened)
-3/4 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
-1 cup flour
-1/4 cup cocoa powder
-1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (melted)
-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-Dark chocolate chips to sprinkle on top
-Powdered sugar to garnish
-Preheat oven to 350 F and line a 9x5 loaf pan with parchment paper.
-In a large bowl using a hand or stand mixer combine the butter and sugar.
-Then add in the eggs and mix.
-Next add in the pumpkin and mix.
-In a microwave safe bowl melt the chocolate chips, making sure to stir every 25 seconds so the chocolate doesn't burn. Once melted pour into the batter and mix to combine.
-In a separate bowl add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine.
-Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Don't over mix.
-Pour the mixture into the loaf pan.
-Sprinkle dark chocolate chips on top and bake for 40-45 minutes. Be sure to check with a toothpick/knife to make sure it comes out clean.
-Take out and let rest for 15 minutes.
-Once cooled sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
-Serve and enjoy!
