Pumpkin chocolate chip cakes are a favorite in our family and I spend the whole month of October through the whole month of November pumpkin baking in every shape with every add-in we can think of. The only part of every recipe I absolutely require is that they are easy to make, don’t have too many ingredients, easy to clean and of course – delicious!
My pumpkin chocolate chip easy recipe starts with cake box as the big easy, a can of pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling though!) and in this case I chose the bundt pan because I love the shape and topping it with glaze and/or powdered sugar works bypassing the usual thick frosting we love on the other cakes.
Ingredients and Prep:
Gather a mixing bowl, spatula for hand mixing and a teaspoon then get the following ingredients ready to go while you preheat the oven to 350
- Box of cake mix I chose yellow cake mix
- 1 Can of Pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling!)
- 2 tsp of oil – I always use olive oil but feel free to use your preference
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- Chocolate Chips
First the cake mix, can of pumpkin and 2 tsp of oil hand mix until completely blended and no cake mix is visible. Add brown sugar and cinnamon and blend thoroughly. If you don’t like pumpkin cake very sweet, start with 1/2 cup of brown sugar and work your way up to taste. Once blended thoroughly, fold in the chocolate chips and get ready to bake for 40-45 minutes or until your oven says it’s time. When in doubt slide a toothpick in and if it comes out moist or with batter on it, it’s not ready.
I spray my baking pans with a non-stick olive oil spray and usually have no problem with them sliding out nicely. Your Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake will be deliciously golden brown when it’s ready, but wait how about adding some mouthwatering vanilla sugar icing glaze for that special last touch.
- 1 Cup Powdered (Confectioners Sugar) Sugar
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 tsp Water or Milk (I Use Water)
