Until this weekend, I don’t think I have ever had pumpkin and chocolate together. What I found out is that the two flavors can go together perfectly in a cake. I had been eager to make something pumpkin since Autumn is finally here, but also had my mind on chocolate at the same time. With that said, I put on my thinking cap and put together a pumpkin cake with chocolate that was gone in just minutes.
Below is my recipe for my moist and oh so YUMMY Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake!

Sounds yummy! I love anything pumpkin!
They really do go to together, don’t they? My mom always made pumpkin chocolate chip bread & people would be skeptical about it, but it’s so good. This recipe looks fabulous!
Yum yum yum!
Yum-o! Pumpkin is a fave around here, I am going to have to try this as my kids would probably go crazy over it!
Pumpkin and Chocolate seem like a great combination. This would be a great recipe to try out. Thanks.

Pumpkin and chocolate is a new combination for me. I think I will give this a try. My kids will also be surprised by this new combination of their snack.
Pumpkin is one of my all time favorite flavors. I have been adding it to my morning oatmeal with some dried cranberries. I am definitely going to give the chocolate a try.
Just made this for my family with jumbo dark chocolate chips- they loved it!! thanks.
Where are the directions! I’m just about to make for a party and I have no directions!
