Pumpkin Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cake

Pin It Who doesn't want cake for breakfast? This is a version of my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cake. Really the only difference is I add melted chocolate, which, according to my daughter, makes it more desirable. I have to admit I think she's right. The original is good, but this one is yum. This cake has all kinds of good things in it so I'm happy to serve it up for breakfast. I cut my cake into 15 pieces, wrap each piece in plastic wrap, and then freeze them. 30-45 seconds in the microwave and breakfast is served. OK, I occasionally steal one out of the freezer.

Pumpkin Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cake
Printable Recipe

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup applesauce
2 eggs
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pureed pumpkin (I used canned)
3 oz bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled

1. Heat your oven to 350; spray a 13x9 glass pan with non-stick spray.

2. Combine all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl; set aside. Combine all of the wet ingredients in a medium bowl (I use a 4 cup glass measuring cup), and whisk until smooth. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and gently mix and fold together with a rubber spatula until just combined.

3. Scrape the batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly, and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or almost clean (a few moist crumbs are OK).

4. Cool completely before cutting into squares (if you can wait that long). A plastic knife makes nice, clean cuts. Serve plain, sprinkle with powdered sugar, or use the glaze from my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cake.
