I’ve been dreaming about this Chocolate Pumpkin Magic Cake for a long time.
It’s very similar to my Pumpkin Magic Cake, but with a chocolate twist and a sprinkle of ginger snaps…
Basically heaven in a slice.
This triple layer dessert is actually crazy easy to make, and comes out in perfect layers each time!
The bottom layer is a delightful pumpkin pie, the middle is a rich chocolate cake and then it’s topped off with a vanilla pudding frosting that is to die for.
The secret to this magical cake is how you bake it.
First you pour in the chocolate cake batter and then the pumpkin pie batter over the top.
Since the pumpkin pie filling is heavier, it will sink to the bottom and the cake will rise to the top.
Now… I get asked a lot, “Why don’t you just put the pumpkin on the bottom to begin with?”
The pumpkin needs to bake longer in order to set, this little trick makes it so both the cake and pie come out perfect! 🙂
On the original pumpkin magic cake I gave the frosting a hint of pumpkin pie spice, but this time I left it out and opted to sprinkle some crushed gingersnap cookies on top.
Oh my! So so so so so good!
Check out those gorgeous layers!!
If you’re not a fan of pie crust, this is the best way to enjoy pumpkin pie!
Serious crowd pleaser, right here. Plus it’s one of those desserts that everyone will easily be drawn to because it looks so different than anything else they’ve ever seen.
Once they taste it… they’ll be hooked and asking how you did it!
Grab a fork and dig in to this chocolate delight!
