It is time for Pumpkin and this Pumpkin Dark Chocolate Bundt cake is the perfect pumpkin treat.

OK…I know it is ONLY August 20th but I am SO READY for everything Fall.  I am ready for cooler weather, sweaters, booties and Pumpkin Spice anything and everything.  

Pumpkin & Chocolate…Together?

I’m in love with pumpkin and I L.O.V.E. dark chocolate even more  and I love them together.  I first had this combo last fall in a muffin, and it was so good I decided to run with it in a bundt cake.  

I love the spice and the chocolate together.  The bitterness of the dark chocolate really helps to bring the pumpkin pie spice to life.  It really enhances it making this the BEST pumpkin bundt cake EVER!

Oh the color…

I have to tell you I love the color of this cake.  It has that perfect hint of pumpkin orange.  It looks like fall.  

Living in SE Texas we do not have fall in the traditional leaves changing colors each year, but at my family farm in Missouri we do and I love going there in the fall.  There is something so amazing about standing a big oak tree and being surrounded my yellow, orange, red and green leaves.  I always just stand in awe and try to take it all in.

Well now I am becoming all nostalgic for Missouri…looks like I am planning a trip for this fall.

Yes, that is caramel

Yes…I drizzled caramel over the top of the cooled cake.  Not only do I love chocolate and pumpkin together I love caramel with chocolate and pumpkin as well.  I used my Salted Caramel Sauce, giving the perfect amount of sweetness without making it too sweet. 

If you do not want to make homemade caramel sauce feel free to use your favorite jarred version…mine is the Salted Caramel Sauce from Trader Joe’s.

Bring on the Pumpkin
