Ditch the Pumpkin Pie and grab some of this pumpkin cake instead. Studded with chocolate chips, walnuts and swirled with mocha fudge frosting, the coffee-chocolate combo complements the cinnamon-nutmeg flavor perfectly.


For the cake:
Pumpkin puree 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Vegetable oil 1 Cup (16 tbs) (or any flavourless variety)
Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
Eggs 4
Sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs) (brown, white or a combination)
Baking powder 1 Tablespoon
Baking soda 2 Teaspoon
Ground cinnamon 2 Teaspoon
Ground nutmeg 1 Teaspoon
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
All purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Chopped walnuts 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (optional)
Chocolate chips 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (any kind you like, also optional)
For the mocha fudge frosting:
Heavy cream 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Butter 2 Tablespoon (doesn’t matter if it is salted or unsalted)
Instant espresso powder 1 Tablespoon
Chocolate 350 Gram (I like to use a combination of milk and dark chocolate)
For the topping:
Chopped almonds 2 Tablespoon
Pumpkin seeds 2 Tablespoon
Chopped dried cranberries 2 Tablespoon
