Pumpkin Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cake

Here’s another recipe by Shruti Chopra who has found immense happiness and joy in the art of baking.

At times it takes a lot of courage to set aside what you’re so used to do (she’s a Corporate Lawyer by profession), and dabble in a hobby just for the sheer enjoyment of it.

After the yummy Rainbow Cake that she shared with us sometime back, here’s another fun recipe called the Pumpkin Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cake – take a look:


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups castor sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour( whole wheat atta)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 cup can fresh pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

To make the Pumpkin Puree:

  1. You’ll need 300 gms pumpkin.
  2. Remove the seed, peel and cut into small pieces.
  3. In a pan cook the chopped pumpkin with 1 cup water or till soft.
  4. Let it cool and mix in the blender to make a fine puree.


  1. In a large bowl, mix butter and sugas until light and fluffy.
