I Made It: Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cake Batter Blondies

Ever since re-making my famous Cake Batter Blondies, I kinda sorta can’t stop. Thankfully I have my doormen to pass them off to, so I’m scoring brownie blondie points while simultaneously avoiding the “Fall 15.” Strategy, people.

Anyway, I figured I should at least do you guys the favor of squeezing in a pumpkin variety before Halloween hits. I’m really selfless like that.

  • 1 box yellow cake mix *
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • a splash – 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place the cake mix, pumpkin pie spice & cinnamon in a large bowl, then mix in the oil and egg.
  3. Add as little milk as possible slowly just until the batter is combined – you want the batter to remain as dense as possible!!!
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  5. Place batter in a greased 8×8 pan or 8-inch cake pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or just until the edges turn golden. Do NOT over-bake – it’s better to err on the side of under-baked (trust me).
  6. Let cool for 20 minutes before cutting because the gooey center needs to set. The result will be a decadent, cake-batter texture.

* My favorite brand has always been Betty Crocker SuperMoist Yellow Cake Mix. It turns out to be the best texture and cake batter-y flavor!

As you can see from the ingredients, these aren’t that far off from the original recipe (spoiler alert – none of the varieties are). But the addition of the pumpkin allows to omit the oil, which makes these like, totally healthy, right?
