Thanksgiving is just two short weeks away and I’ve got a dessert that’s sure to please! My recipe for Glazed Double-Chocolate Pumpkin Bundt Cake starts with a boxed cake mix and is filled with classic fall spices. Black coffee adds depth of flavor and canned pumpkin gives the cake a delectably moist texture, making it a wonderful addition to any holiday celebration.
A recipe is only as good as the quality of its ingredients. For the batter, I used pure vanilla extract from Cozumel, Mexico, that I picked up on vacation earlier this year. I also baked the cake using Hunter Cattle Company’s pasture-raised chicken eggs.
Directions Grease and flour a standard bundt pan. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients, except chocolate chips and flour, together using a mixer until well blended. In a separate bowl, mix flour and chocolate chips. The flour will prevent the chocolate chips from sinking to the bottom of the cake. Add chocolate chips to the Devil’s Food Cake mixture. Pour ingredients into the bundt pan and smooth the top. Bake cake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool 15 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. For the glaze, combine confectioners’ sugar, half & half and vanilla. The consistency should coat the back of a spoon and not be too runny. Using a spoon, drizzle glaze over the top of the cake, allowing it to run down and around the sides. You may not use the entire glaze; just add it until you’re satisfied with the presentation. Serve with coffee any time of day and enjoy!
