  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Line a 9 x 13 baking pan with parchment or foil. You want to leave enough of an overhang that you can easily remove the cake after it's done baking. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add egg and vanilla and beat until thoroughly combined.
  • Add pumpkin to mixture and beat until combined.
  • Slowly add flour mixture, adding in thirds, mixing just until combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips, reserving 1/4 cup to sprinkle on top.
  • Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out with just a few moist crumbs.
  • Sprinkle reserved chocolate chips on top of the cake and let the cake cool completely in the baking pan.
  • Use the parchment paper or foil to lift the cake from the pan before cutting.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.



Tools Needed

9 x 13 Baking Pan | Hand Mixer or Stand Mixer | Mixing Bowls

Chip Options

Try different flavored chips instead of chocolate. Butterscotch, cinnamon, vanilla – all would be good options!

Want to Frost the Cake?

My brown butter cream cheese frosting would be an excellent choice.
