Pumpkin Chocolate Marble Bundt Cake is the perfect blend of pumpkin and chocolate swirled into a bundt cake. Perfect for celebrate a half birthday!
This Pumpkin Chocolate Marble Bundt Cake taught me that I do indeed love pumpkin. Especially when you combine it with chocolate.
Over the summer, Bake at 350 wrote a post about celebrating half birthdays with half a cake and I was sold. Birthdays have always been a big deal to me so celebrating twice a year? With cake? Sold.
Baby Girl turned 6 months/half a year last week (can you even believe it? I’ve been a mom for 6 months! So far, so good. And getting even better) and I was excited to start the half birthday/half cake tradition.
I’ve been meaning to jump on the pumpkin bandwagon (all the cool kids are doing it) and with this cake, I learned that I actually do like pumpkin.
The pumpkin flavor is mild but it adds a nice moistness to the cake. My favorite part, of course, was the chocolate swirl, but the pumpkin was nice, too. Next time I’m thinking I might even sprinkle in a layer of mini chocolate chips.
I kept one half and dropped half off to my parents. After all, they were celebrating being grandparents for half a year.
Baby Girl didn’t get any, but she did have pureed sweet potatoes to celebrate her halfsie and was quite pleased.
