We just love a dessert that is simple to make. This one certainly fit’s the bill. It starts out with a cake mix. Easy Chocolate Pumpkin Bundt Cake truly is easy as pie to make.

Fudgy Chocolate Pumpkin Bundt Cake

This easy cake comes from and old Weight Watchers recipe that has been around for years. We just amped it up a bit by adding in a bit more than just the pumpkin puree.

If you need this cake for a party or a get together you can make it in a 9×13 pan instead. Just don’t over bake the cake so it stays kind of moist and fudgey like.

Slather on the frosting, maybe a few more chocolate chips if you like and you have a delicious quick dessert.

Can I Use a different flavor cake mix?

You sure can! We have used Spice flavor and yellow cake mix and used a cream cheese frosting for both. They have both been delicious. When using one of these cake mixes you can change the chips to white chocolate or butterscotch if you like.

There is nothing easier than starting out with a cake mix when it comes to making a dessert. Bu sometimes when your starting out with a simple cake mix you want to add a little bit more to make your cake extra special.

I remember the first time we tried this cake. It was so good. It was only made with pumpkin puree and chocolate cake yet it was still delicious.

I immediately started thinking of how I could make it even better. Maybe add a few chocolate chips, some coconut or some nuts. We have tried a bunch of different things.

We decided the favorite was some added chocolate to the cake mix to make it just a bit fudgier. This involved just melting a few chocolate chips. So easy! And we added some fudgy frosting.

How do I store leftover cake?

This cake can be left on the counter in an air tight container for a few days of in the refrigerator. If left on the counter the frosting will be soft so keep that in mind.

This cake is ridiculously easy and it requires only a few ingredients. I still remember the look I used to get when people tasted it for the first time. Nobody believed it all started with a cake mix.

Generally we would go for a scratch made cake but you know sometimes these box cake mixes have come in handy. And can I say are super delicious when they are doctored up.

For the cake

Use any brand cake or kind you like. We normally go for a darker chocolate cake but sometimes like something different too. we have used a milk chocolate and a spice and yellow cake mix too. Make them all!

For the chocolate chips we use 1/4 cup just to add a bit more fudge to the cake so any brand works well.

The Pumpkin

You want to use pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie mix. any brand should work fine as long as it is 100% pumpkin.

  1. You know I think adding a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg to this ba/er would be great! Years ago Betty Crocker made a New Orleans Chocolate spice cake mix. It was really good. But gone with the wind like so many other good things Lol

    1. Sounds like a great idea. We also make this with a spice cake and add some cocoa powder. Adding some spice is always a great idea.
