What ingredients are in Pumpkin chocolate chip bundt cake?
Spice Cake Mix - Yes, you heard right! This cake is so easy to make because we rely on good ole' cake mix to do most of the heavy lifting. If you can't find spice cake mix, you can substitute with yellow mix, just add about 1 teaspoon of all spice. I can't promise the same flavor, but it will be close!
Canned Pumpkin Puree - I don't always love using canned vegetables, but canned pumpkin is the exception. It makes this cake incredibly moist. If you happen to make homemade pureed pumpkin, by all means substitute with that.
Eggs - Eggs will help leaven the cake as well as add a nice structure. This cake can be sliced easily and has a tender crumb.
Butter - Everything's better with butter, right? Butter add flavor and richness to the cake. If you are watching your fat intake, you can skip adding butter to this recipe.
Vanilla Extract - Vanilla will add a nice flavor to the cake as well as help enhance the other flavors. Vanilla and chocolate pair exceptionally well!
Chocolate Chips - While you could make this cake without the chocolate, why would you-lol! Chocolate and pumpkin taste great together and I'm so thankful to the baker who decided to put the two together!
