pumpkin + chocolate


Pumpkin recipe no. three was good. Despite the nearly full can of pumpkin puree called for in the recipe, this chocolate cake has a very subtle pumpkin flavor, which makes it an easy crowd pleaser. After all, I know that not everyone is as obsessed with pumpkin desserts as I am. It is super moist and chocolatey and delicious. But my favorite part by far is the pumpkin spice butter cream frosting. I am trying to think of other things I can spread it on. Graham crackers? Brownies? My fingers? Yum!

This just in: this cake is even more delicious the next day.

  9. Since we didn't really care for the frosting part, I didn't put it on our cake. You can pick it up tomorrow. :-)

  10. I just made that yesterday! And by golly it IS so good. And the frosting is scrumptious too, couldn't get enough of it and I'm not a frosting girl.

    I didn't put the sour cream in the cake mix because I saw the author's cake had collapsed a bit in the pic and I figured it was because the recipe was too dense. The result was amazing and no sinking in the middle!
