The chocolate and pumpkin combination is a favorite of our family and this recipe makes a nice, moist cake. I opted for cupcakes, since that's what DD wanted to decorate (she's learning to swirl icing), and I halved the recipe. We made a basic Wilton cream cheese frosting to top them off with. Delicious! :) My only complaint is that the chocolate flavor could be a little stronger & I might swap out a bit of flour next time in favor of more Dutch processed cocoa. Thanks for posting the recipe, adkbabe! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2012 Pick-A-Chef.
