    This recipe makes a moist, delicious chocolately version of traditional pumpkin bread. A tasty orange glaze icing finishes it off nicely. I made my pumpkin pie spice from scratch!


    • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
    • 1 tsp. baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
    • 1/2 cup buttermilk
    • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
    • 1 cup canned pumpkin
    • 3 oz. dark chocolate, melted
    • 2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    • 1 tsp. finely shredded orange peel
    • 2 to 3 tbsp. milk or orange juice


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9x5 inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line pan with parchment; coat with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
    3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar. Add butter, buttermilk, and vanilla. Whisk until combined. Fold in pumpkin.
    4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients all at once; whisk just until no lumps remain.
    5. Divide batter in half. Add melted chocolate and cocoa powder to half the batter; stir to combine.
    6. Alternately add batters to pan. Using a knife, swirl through batter. Bake 55 to 65 minutes until cake has risen and crackled, and a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Remove; let cool 20 minutes. Invert onto a wire rack and let cool completely.
    7. For orange glaze, in a small bowl stir together powdered sugar, orange peel, and orange juice. Spoon over cooled cake.
