Double Chocolate Pumpkin Cake

In addition to making centerpieces while at Grace’s house last week, I also attempted this Double Chocolate Pumpkin Cake from Picky Palate. And let’s just say it didn’t go so well.

Picky Palate
I mixed up the batter as directed and poured it into two bread pans.

Then you’re supposed to bake for 55-60 minutes.

I let it cook for 50 minutes and I thought the outsides were starting to burn. So I took the cakes out and let them cool. Once I took them out of the pan, I realized that the middle was wet and undercooked.

I should have taken a picture but I was so mad I just wanted it out of my sight…haha

It wasn't the recipes fault. If I had baked it for 65-70 minutes, it probably would have been fine. I did try a little taste and could barely taste the pumpkin. If there’s ever a next time, I would maybe add a dash of pumpkin pie spice.

Needless to say, I did not serve the cake on Thanksgiving. The last thing I needed was for everyone to get salmonella.

The butter cream however, was AMAZING! I ate it on its own right out of the bowl.

Grace did whip up a pumpkin gingerbread trifle for Thanksgiving that everyone seemed to enjoy. Check back for her review.
