This cake is moist and delicious, with just the right amount of pumpkin and just the right amount of chocolate! Something different, it’s perfect for the holidays.
To make yours decadently moist, remember to layer the batter: pumpkin, then chocolate, then more pumpkin. Then, give the pan a few good “twists” to swirl the batter together.
