Pumpkin Cake

One of my new years resolutions is to cook and bake more and for the past few weeks i've been doing exactly that!! Here is a yummy recipe for a Pumpkin Bundt Cake I found online, but ended up altering few things to my desires: 

4 Large Eggs
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
2 1/2 Cups Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract 
1 Can of Pumpkin Puree (15 ounce) 
3 Cups of All Purpose Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder 
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/3 tsp Ground Cinnamon 
1/4 tsp Ground Ginger 
1/8 tsp Ground Cloves 
1 Cup of Mini Chocolate Chips

Pre-heat the over to 350 degrees. 
Mix eggs, oil, sugar, and vanilla extract together in a bowl and beat well. Add pumpkin puree and mix again. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Now add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients bowl and mix well. Add chocolate chips. Add the batter into the bundt pan and bake for 55 minutes.  

Once baked, you can dust the cake with powdered sugar or decorate with the Chocolate Glaze recipe below. 

Chocolate Glaze: 
Take 6 Ounces of semisweet chocolate, 57 grams of butter, and 2 tbsp of light corn syrup in a pan. Melt them together and once melted let it cool to a thick syrup consistency. Pour over the cake and let it sit for 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
