Double Chocolate Pumpkin Cake

double chocolate pumpkin cake

I have another great pumpkin recipe for you all. I had a bunch of pumpkin puree left from my pumpkin recipe I shared. I also had butter cream frosting left over that made a few days ago. I made cupcakes for some of my favorite girls at church that I teach Sunday school too. I had 3 of my girls have birthdays, so I couldn’t let them celebrate without cupcakes. This butter cream frosting was a perfect pair with this cake. You can’t have enough pumpkin this time of year right? I love this recipe because it spices up a great box cake mix. These recipes are always super easy and leave your guest or who ever you are sharing it with wanting more. If you are in search of a great dessert to take to your fall parties this year this is the one. Especially if you are a chocolate lover, it’s the perfect double chocolate cake.
