Electric Lunchbox #75: Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cake

Pumpkin infatuation not over yet! Happy Monday everyone!

I used chocolate cake mix for this as I adore chocolate BUT…

1. if you want a just a pumpkin spiced bread, feel free to use a yellow cake mix instead of the chocolate cake mix. AND…

2. if you want it super easy, and you have a Spice Cake mix handy, just mix with the pumpkin puree and omit the spices!

Of course chocolate chips are still recommend for either variation. 😊 I hope you like this easy to make cake! Enjoy!

*NOTE that this recipe uses regular sized measuring cups, NOT the tiny ELB cup, unless specified.*
