Pumpkin Cake Recipe

I have found several pumpkin cake recipes I liked online, but I decided to modify a few and come up with my own.


I can never seem to get a picture before the kids dig in.

So, my modified recipe is preheat your oven to 350.

Spray some nonstick spray on a cake pan.

Mix in a bowl 2 cups of sugar and 1 1/4 cup of oil.


Add 1 teaspoon of  Vanilla and one 15 oz. can of pumpkin.  Just pumpkin.

Beat in 4 eggs.


Beat in 2 cups of flower.

Add 2 teaspoons of baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, and 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg.

After you mix all of that together, add 1 cup of chocolate chips.


Pour it all into a pan and bake it for around 30 minutes.  It took mine around 45 minutes, just check on it at 30 because this recipe is basically a combo of three different ones, and I am winging it.

Before it bakes, it looks like this.


All of my kids love this cake, and I do too.  It is not too sweet or rich.  Mine came out perfectly.
