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.

"This is a winner every time. After the first time making a recipe the way it is written I on subsequent makings tweak it my way. I use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose, add the choco chips to the batter versus sprinkling on top...

Moist, Hassle-Free and Delicious!!!!!

LOVED this recipe! I made it for a tailgate, and everyone asked for the recipe. Also, I died the glaze yellow since the team colors are black (chocolate) and gold! The cake itself was very delicious and moist, and held up better than I thought it would. It came right out of the pan. I will definatley make this again!


This is a delicious cake. My 4 year old son loves it. We've made it as a bundt cake and as mini muffins and its turned out great.

so far from comments looks great but questions?

glad to see honey, sugar beet and agave can replace the corn syrup - what about canola oil? can replace with butter or sunflower oil without issue? cake looks and sounds amazing - i can't wait to make it. please reply to with any answers or suggestions.

Fudgy and Moist

This is a the perfect moist and fudgy cake. You don't need any frosting - the glaze is just the right touch. It's got an intense flavor spicy chocolate flavor, reminding me of a deconstructed Italian chocolate cookie we eat @ Christmas time. I used my own frozen pumpkin puree, but thought the idea that you use a whole can of pumpkin is a good leftover/waste there. I also did not sprinkle with mini morsels or nuts. As you can see, my hubby enjoyed it last night as a nightime snack.....rendering a gap in my photo ;) This will be a chocolate staple recipe in my home. We will probably freeze half since there is a lot.

Quick/easy prep, doesn't need icing, utilizes a whole can of pumpkin-no waste
Great cake eh Mikey?
One of my favorite combos of flavors! Chocolate & Pumpkin, just needed to add caramel for perfectio

I wanted a chocolate and pumpkin bundt and this did the trick. The other flavor I love with these two is caramel. So the glaze I made was caramel, dark rich caramel. Added just a bit of fresh whipped cream when served and a big hit!!

Easy to make and make substitutions for different flavors
