Servings 24


  • 2 c flour
  • 2 c sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 c vegetable oil
  • 1 15 oz can pureed pumpkin
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 c mini chocolate chips divided
  • 1 16 oz container store-bought chocolate fudge frosting optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a sheet pan (12x18")* with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl (or bowl of a stand mixer), combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  • Add the oil, pumpkin and eggs and mix until smooth; add ¾ of the mini chocolate chips and stir until well-dispersed.
  • Pour into the greased pan and sprinkle with remaining ¼ c mini chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Let cool completely then frost with chocolate fudge frosting, if desired. (The cake is soft, so I recommend heating the frosting in the microwave until softened before spreading on the cake).


*Can also use a Jelly Roll pan (10.5 x 15.5") as long as the sides are at least 1" tall.  Baking time will need to be increased by a couple minutes.
