Recipe from Betty Crocker


3 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup butter or margarine, softened

1 1/3 cups packed brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

4 eggs

1 can (15 oz) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)

2 teaspoons vanilla

1/2 cup milk

1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips


1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

2 to 3 tablespoons milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with shortening; lightly flour. In medium bowl, mix flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.

In large bowl, beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating on low speed after each addition until blended. Add pumpkin and 2 teaspoons vanilla; beat on medium speed until blended. On low speed, beat in flour mixture alternately with 1/2 cup milk until smooth. Stir in 1 cup of the chocolate chips. Spoon batter into pan.

Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour. In medium bowl, mix all glaze ingredients until smooth and thick. Drizzle glaze over cake. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips.
