How to make chocolate pumpkin cake

Print this recipe
For a special dessert that's a cinch to make, this chocolate pumpkin cake is just the thing! Spiced pumpkin cake gets dotted with chunks of delicious dark chocolate. It's a wonderful fall dessert, and best of all, you can probably make it with ingredients you already have in the cupboard.
This cake is actually better once it's cooled a bit, so consider making it in advance and waiting until you're ready to serve it to slice. Toasting it or running it under the broiler and serving it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream will really take the proverbial cake!
