Ultimate Pumpkin Cake
This Pumpkin Cake is to die for! It has my favorite cream cheese frosting, mini chocolate chips, and the pumpkin in this recipe not only adds great flavor, it also keeps the cake irresistibly moist. I probably could’ve sat down with the pan and a fork and eaten the whole thing. I didn’t, but I sure wanted to!
Cream Cheese Frosting for Pumpkin Cake
The frosting on this pumpkin cake is one of my favorite frosting recipes of all time! It does make quite a bit, if you happen to have leftover frosting (is that even a thing??) it’s amazing on pancakes, banana bread and eaten from a spoon.
