My sister, a few of my cousins and my uncle did the Boise Turkey Day 5K Run on Thanksgiving day. On Friday I did a 4-mile run and ab workout and then on Saturday I did a 21-minute full body workout using the “Seven” app. If you haven’t tried it out…do. It’s awesome and makes working out at home SO easy.
1 3/4 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 large eggs
1 1/4 c sugar
1/2 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. buttermilk or milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. pumpkin puree
3 oz. dark chocolate, melted
2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
2 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. orange zest
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9×5 loaf pan with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl whisk together flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- In another bowl whisk together eggs and sugar. Add in milk, butter, and vanilla. Fold in pumpkin puree. Add to the flour mixture and stir until lumps are gone.
- Divide the batter in half adding melted chocolate and the cocoa powder to one and the pumpkin puree to the other. Alternately add the chocolate batter and regular batter to the pan. Use a knife to swirl through batter.
- Bake cake for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let the cake cool 20 minutes in the pan, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
- To make the glaze mix all ingredients together and pour over the cooled cake on the wire rack. Let it sit for 20 minutes then cut and serve.
- Store in a airtight container. Enjoy!
Happy 24th sister! Love you!
