Baking the Cake

  • Pour half the Pumpkin batter in the Bundt pan. Top with half the Chocolate Batter. Repeat layers.
  • Take a knife and swirl the batters to mix them if desired.
  • Bake for 60-70 minutes until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Let it cool for 10 minutes, and then invert the pan.

Chocolate Glaze

  • Combine the chocolate squares and butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds.
