Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake is super moist and delicious. I love eating a slice of this heavenly bundt cake with a glass of apple cider in the fall. It doesn’t get much better than that!

So you know how I mentioned almost a month ago that my phone broke and I was almost dying without it? Well I finally got my new one working on Tuesday night.

We have phone insurance, but using it was not the most fun process and they sent me the wrong phone the first time. So it’s taken a while, but I’m back in business! I finally have all my contacts again! Woohoo!

Seriously, what did we do before cell phones? I know I was alive then and I remember not having them, but really – what did we do? Nutty.

A co-worker was telling me a while back that his kids actually saw a pay phone recently and had to ask him what it was. They had no idea! Not only crazy, but way to make me feel old!

Anywho, this bundt cake is the jam. If you have around here much, then you know I’ve been into pumpkin and chocolate and a flavor combo.

I love them together in this bundt cake. Bundt cakes kind of rock. They are so easy. You throw all the ingredients together, bake it, cool it, and add some glaze or icing. No layering involved or fancy icing. You know I love my fancy desserts, but a girl’s gotta have a few easier recipes to pull out once and a while, you know?

    Could you please advise whether the pumpkin gets mixed with the egg, oil and sugar, or with the dry ingredients? Someone asked this earlier but I think you misunderstood the question. I’m assuming it gets mixed with the wet ingredients, and then the wet and dry get mixed together alternatively? It looks delicious and can’t wait to try it!

      1. Lindsay

        No. The cakes are far smaller so you’d need to reduce the time. I haven’t done minis though so I’m not sure what the time would be.

    1. Lindsay

      Do you want to add half of the drain gradients and mix it in, then add the pumpkin and mix that in, then add the rest of the dry gradients and mix. I hope that helps!

    Looks scrumptious!  Do you refrigerate it?  Trying to make a cake for a carnival cake walk on Saturday.  The cakes have to be delivered the Friday before, but no refrigeration is available.  Thinking about skipping the frosting which I hate because frosting rocks, but worried about lack of refrigeration…. Ugh!  Any thoughts or tips?!!

    1. Lindsay

      I haven’t ever tried it. I’m not sure. But I do have a Pumpkin Sheet Cake recipe that’ll be posting soon, if you want to keep an eye out for that.

    im not a huge fan of pumpkin…but i desperately need a chocolate chip bundt cake recipe…will this one work without the pumpkin?

  4. Jenny Stinson

    This was delicious and I am making it a second time within a week. However, the toothpick never came out clean. After 75 min the center was still pretty wet. But we ate it anyway. Yum. Any tips for getting the center to cook through?

    This cake is super yummy. I always like making bundt cakes so I was excited to find this recipe. It was a big hit for those that my husband and I made it for. I made the cake and he made the icing. Then I put the icing on the cake. It was delicious.

    Hi Lindsey! Just wondering, can this be baked in cupcake form? or will it be too dense?
    Oh and also, should this recipe be also filed in Cakes and Cupcakes?
    Thank you!

      I haven’t tried it as cupcakes, so it’s hard to say. It’s possible they’d be fairly dense.

    This pumpkin bundt cake would be the perfect way for me to use up all the leftover canned pumpkin I have in the fridge! Brilliant! 😀

  8. Lindsey@American+Heritage+Cooking

    The overhead shot?! Perfection! Sooooo pretty! And who is tired of pumpkin?! Not me! This cake looks amazing! Pinned!

  9. Melanie+@+Carmel+Moments

    You dazzle me with your creations! Looks amazing! Perfect combo of flavors and perfect topping pizazz.

    Yum. Pinned. Have a fabulous weekend!

    There’s a museum near our house that actually has a corded rotary dial phone for the kids to check out and play with. My kids have always thought it was the most hilarious thing, like it was a toy or something. I have many fond memories of stretching the cord to its limits, trying to find a closet away from my family, so I could have private conversations:) Headed over to get the recipe for this amazing looking cake!

    It’s so crazy to think of life before cellular devices eh? WHAT DID WE DO?! We actually talked? WHAT?!
    I couldn’t even try talking now because my face would be stuffed with these DELICIOUS cake! Pinned!

    I just made a pumpkin bundt this week! Like you, I’m a big fan. I love how your cake is so clearly dense toward the bottom. That’s my favorite part! That and the chocolate. And the glaze. The whole darn thing, really!
