Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake


I must confess I love this pumpkin Bundt pan!! I was snooping around my mother-in-law’s bakeware and found this beauty and just knew I needed to make something with it. I’m pretty sure it hadn’t been used in quite sometime, but I was happy to put it to work! As for the cake, I figured I needed to make something pumpkin and looked through all the recipes I had marked to try and found this one from the Food Librarian. I enjoyed the pumpkin cake part, not positive I loved the combination of pumpkin and chocolate chips. This might have been because I only had regular chocolate chips on hand instead of minis, but next time I think I will cut back on the amount of chocolate chips. I have adjusted the measurements for the chocolate chips below. For those that are curious about the Bundt pan, it can be found here.
