A while back, I came across this Whole Foods recipe for pumpkin chocolate cake, and decided to make it for my co-workers. Pumpkin + Chocolate = Mmmmm, haha. Plus, it looked v. simple to make and a great way to welcome in Fall :o)
I don't have whole wheat flour, so I used the same amount of regular all-purpose flour for this recipe. Luckily for me I love pumpkin, so I had everything I needed on hand to make this cake.
This recipe is v. simple and comes together easily. As the cake bakes you get this really fantastic pumpkin/cocoa fragrance filling up the kitchen- yum!
And here we have the finished cake! This was a big hit at work and everyone seemed to enjoy it. It's not overly sweet but v. moist due to the pumpkin puree. If you'd like to add some texture, I'd recommend chopped walnuts or chocolate chips. If you'd like frosting, I think a simple cream cheese frosting would be a nice pairing to this cake. Try this out if you're looking for a pumpkin baked good that's not just your regular pumpkin pie or pumpkin bread!
