I made this cake last year and gave it away for Christmas presents and EVERYONE loved it. It truly is incredibly moist and rich and absolutely delicious. It freezes well, though, for some reason, mine disappeared from the freezer in no time. I can't stop eating it!!!! I added chocolate chips to the batter... hey, if you're giving it away as a gift, why hold back on the happy little surpirses inside?
Glazed Chocolate-Pumpkin Bundt Cake
From EatingWell: October/November 2006
You don't have to have pumpkin pie to still enjoy pumpkin and spice in a Thanksgiving dessert. This tender, moist cake uses pureed pumpkin to replace much of the fat and is delicately seasoned with classic Thanksgiving flavors.

One of the moistest cakes I have ever made. It is so delicious on its own it doesn't even need a glaze. My substitutions: 2/3 cup of brown sugar (instead of granulated sugar), freshly made pumpkin puree, olive oil (instead of canola oil), 1/3 cup of brown sugar and agave nectar (instead of corn syrup). I found the spices overpower the entire cake so next time I will only use 1/2 a teaspoon.
Everyone in my Bible study loved it. I replaced the corn syrup with honey, and it was delicious.

What a great bundt cake!! Flavorful and moist with just a hint of the pumkin (I would have liked more pumpkin flavor but that still doesn't take away from the 5 stars, it's that good). We tasted more of the pumpkin spice than actual pumpkin, which could be because I added 1 1/2 tsp (we like it spicy). I made this for a friend's birthday cake since she is a huge pumpkin fan. Didn't have the whole wheat pastry flour so I used all purpose instead. I also used 1 tsp vanilla powder, 1 tsp vanilla bean paste, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract instead of 1 T vanilla extract because I was short on the extract. Mine did take the entire 1:15 to bake, but I have a gas oven that isn't consistent. Cake turned out of the pan easily. Glaze with the mini chocolate chips was also beautiful. This is definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
It's a Thanksgiving favourite!
