It’s all about the pumpkins this season. If you have a family party to go to coming up, this Chocolate Pumpkin Fudge Bundt Cake would be the perfect dessert to bring.
In this house we’re a little mixed on the pumpkin spice craze. Mark loves a good pumpkin cake, but I could easily go without this seemingly favorite fall treat. I’m perfectly OK adding pumpkin to other delicious treats, though. Desserts like Chocolate Pumpkin Fudge Bundt Cake.
Now, I really had no reason to make a cake this week, other then I hadn’t baked much for awhile. The kids have probably been feeling a tad deprived of their after school treats as I usually sent them to the kitchen for a cup of water or a handful of carrots. The situation needed to be rectified.
Mark had the day off, so we decided it would be a good day to carve pumpkins after school with the kids and enjoy some Chocolate Pumpkin Fudge Bundt Cake. In Mark’s words “It is good, delicious, delectable, a perfect combination.”
I originally thought I’d frost the cake with an orange frosting, but as I got going decided a Pumpkin Glaze would enhance the flavors more. Of course, an orange frosting would allow for a fun jack o’lantern fall look, you really ought to try the pumpkin glaze. All it takes are 2 simple ingredients!
