Pumpkin Cake - celebrating my blog's 4th birthday

Happy New Year - 2013!

I can't believe it that I have been blogging for 4 years now! I know I have not been a regular, but it has been an awesome journey. I don't know if anyone uses this blog or not, but I am all the time refering back to it. In these days of smart phones, this blog is that recipe book that I can always access, instead of spending hours looking for my recipe book. And since the recipes are to my taste, I don't have to estimate anything.

Here is a super duper easy pumpkin cake recipe without eggs... My sister E sent me the banana cake recipe and I adapted it to my taste to make this pumpkin cake. The cake is super moist and add some chocolate chips and eat a rich and decadent cake.

3 Cups of all self rising flour
1 Cup of butter (Melted , Un-Salted)
2 Cups of brown sugar
1 tin of pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie)
Pinch of Salt
1 tea spoon of ground cinanmon
1 cup of milk
2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips
How To
Pre-heat the Oven to 350 F ( 175 Degrees C)
Mix together butter  and sugar until they are well blended. Use your muscles, no blender, mixer needed. Add the pumpkin puree and mix well again.
In another bowl ,mix the flour and salt and spices.
Now slowly mix the dry ingredients above into the liquid mixture.
Add milk as the mixture gets thick. I used a little more than 1 cup of milk. 
Add the chocolate chips into the batter.
Pour the mixture into the greased loaf Pan.
Bake for about 40 mins
Check intermittently by pricking a tooth-pick to see nothing gets stuck on it.
Cool on rack.

Dig in once it cooks... Its gooey and yummy and chocolatey...
If you want you can add nuts to the cake too..
