Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Cinnamon and Chocolate

Pumpkin Bundt cake with cinnamon and chocolate

Pumpkin days are not over, yet! I still have a couple of aces up in my sleeve. I hope I will manage to convince you to do this Pumpkin Bread, that by the way, has chocolate in it… sooo… yeah! This cake was loved even by a pumpkin hater person. It seems that chocolate really makes things better. Hmm, i could survive just with that, that’s a nice thought! Dark chocolate that will melt in your mouth, that sweet and bitter taste, that makes you hate it and love it in the same time, and take another bite just to be ravished again. Gulp!

You’ll need:

  • Butter – 120g
  • All purpose flour – 250g
  • Sugar – 200g
  • Eggs – 2
  • Pumpkin– 200g baked
  • Baking soda – 1 teaspoon
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Water – 3 spoons hot water
  • Cinnamon – a pinch
  • Chocolate chips 

Whisk the melted butter and the sugar until light and fluffy. Then add the eggs and mix’em well.  In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients: flour + salt + baking soda + cinnamon + chocolate chips.
Slowly add the mixed butter, stirring gently until the batter is smooth enough. Then add the smashed pumpkin, hot water – 3 tablespoons, and mix everything.
Cover your tray with parchment paper and then pour the cake mixture. Transfer it to the oven and bake it for about an hour – 180C, or until golden-brown. 

There you have it! Your own Pumpkin Bread, of course you can improve it by adding maybe some spices like ginger, to make it more interesting!
