Coffee Cake Friday: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake

Happy Friday, Everyone! It’s the day before Halloween, so I had to make another pumpkin cake. This one is extra special because it contains chocolate chips. I don’t really think you can go wrong adding chocolate to almost any baked item. On this cake, the spices take the backseat to the taste of the pumpkin and the chocolate. I hope you enjoy it!

Pre-Order Gluten-Free Wish List


  1. Amy says

    Do you think this would work dairy-free by replacing the butter with butter substitute, water instead of milk, and dairy-free chocolate chips?

  2. Pat says

    This is soooo good! Even my hubby, who has balked at some of my gluten free baking, LOVED it!! Making it again for a church function.

  3. Tracey says

    I made this yesterday, but without chocolate chips since I’m out at the moment. A few things I did differently was to up the pumpkin pie spices (I know you’re not a big fan, Jeanne. :-) ), sub honey for the sugar, and reduce the milk a bit. I also whipped up a batch of Honey Rum Cream Cheese frosting to go with the cake. My husband flipped over it! Now that I’m learning the ins and outs of gluten-free baking, he’s requested that I make several of your recipes. I had hoped to get through this holiday season without adding a few extra pounds, but now this is going to be a challenge! :-)

      Tracey: yay! And the frosting sounds yummy–wow. And if you like pumpkin pie spice, you should use pumpkin pie spice! :) I’m so glad you’re enjoying my recipes!
