Chocolate Pumpkin Whole Wheat Bundt Cake

Pumpkin Chocolate Bundt Cake

Infuse your chocolate bundt cake with pumpkin puree for the added vitamins and improved texture of this partially whole wheat cake.  I also included the pumpkin pie spice flavor so that the cake would scream Fall.

  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

To prepare cake: Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 12-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray and sprinkle with flour.

1. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, granulated sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt in a medium bowl. 

2. Blend milk, pumpkin puree and brown sugar in a separate large bowl until well blended. Beat in whole egg and egg white. Stir in oil, agave and vanilla. Gradually add the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan.

3. Bake the cake until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out with only a few moist crumbs attached, 1 to 1¼ hours. Let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely on the rack, about 2 hours.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar or drizzle with glaze.
