Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pound Cake is the only pumpkin cake you need this Fall! Moist, rich pumpkin cake infused with chocolate and bathed in a velvety Cinnamon Pumpkin Cream Cheese Glaze.
As I mentioned in my Nutella Pumpkin Crepes post, my favorite pumpkin anything growing up was my mom’s famous pumpkin bread with chocolate chips – pumpkin and chocolate are just made for each other! And my favorite part of the bread – aside from the chocolate chips – was the outer crystallized sugar crust. My mom began making mini loafs just so there would be more crust – thanks mom.
So when I was thinking about what type of pumpkin cake I wanted to make, I knew it had to have chocolate chips and a crystallized brown sugar crust which meant it had to be a chocolate chip pumpkin pound cake!
I adore pound cakes – they are definitely the main type of cake I make because I love them so much! Lemon Pound Cake Loaf, Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pound Cake, Toffee Caramel Pecan Pound Cake – and now Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pound Cake! I just can’t get enough of their rich, buttery, soft, moist texture. And they are so pretty.
And so impressive yet so easy!
This Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pound Cake is is rich, and dense yet super moist due to the pumpkin puree and infused with Fall spices: cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.
And chocolate chips.
The multi-dimensional silky Cinnamon Pumpkin Cream Cheese Glaze pushes this pumpkin cake over the delicious edge into the crazy delicious arena where everyone will be beg you for the recipe. The glaze is a simple combination of cinnamon, pumpkin puree, cream cheese and powdered sugar that enhances the Fall spiced pumpkin cake. I love to warm my slice(s) of cake for 15 seconds or so not only is the chocolate studded cake warm but the the glaze is all warm, ooey, and gooey and irresistible!
