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!
