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.
