Recipe Introduction

This is a cake I make every Fall. Enjoyed by all

Ingredients You'll Need

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 milk or cream


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan

In a medium bowl, mix flour, soda, salt, 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg, ginger and cloves. Set aside.

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy, Add eggs and beat well.

Add flour mixture alternately with pumpkin

Stir in chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of the walnuts.

Pour batter into loaf pan. Sprinkle remaining nuts on top.

Bake at for 65 to 70 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. While still warm, drizzle with glaze (below).

Glaze: In a medium bowl, combine confectioners sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Mix and add 1 to 2 teaspoons

MY NOTE: I usually double the glaze and make it more of a frosting.

Lately, I just add all the walnuts right into the batter, not some on top
