Pumpkin chocolate cake recipe

It’s close to the pumpkin season. Everything pumpkin, and chocolate. This recipe looks like I’m going to be staying inside this Halloween and you know, eating this.

This is actually called Pumpkin Poke Cake and I found the recipe at OMGChocolateDesserts where you can read it in detail.


Pumpkin poke cake

A little white chocolate filling can’t do any harm ;-). I have seen many times already that pumpkin and white chocolate go together brilliantly. I don’t know if you remember my recipes from last year for White Chocolate Pumpkin Cups and White Chocolate Pumpkin Truffles?

First I thought that I might stir some white chocolate chips into the cake batter and with that add a little crunchy texture to this soft cake, but then, I changed my mind. It will be a very creamy and moist poke cake filled with white chocolate pudding, which will, I hope, satisfy all tastes like all chocolate poke cakes that I have made before.

Pumpkin Poke Cake - If you love classic pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting, then you will surely love this upgraded version of the unbelievably moist Pumpkin cake filled with homemade white chocolate pudding.

So, with coming holidays, Halloween and Thanksgiving Pumpkin Poke Cake is a great idea for dessert after a holiday lunch or dinner. The recipe is very simple, and for a real homemade cake, from beginning to end, you won’t need much more time then when you use boxed cake mix and canned frosting.

For the cake:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 eggs-lightly beaten
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 15 Oz. can pumpkin (pumpkin puree)
For white chocolate pudding:
  • 2 ¼ cups milk
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ cup corn starch
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ cup white chocolate chips
For cream cheese frosting:
  • 8 Oz. cream cheese-softened
  • 2 tablespoon butter-softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar (or more)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
