Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

I had no intention of making this cake, but due to a little snafu while attempting to make a pumpkin roll, I had to change course.  What a lucky mistake!  This cake was fantastically moist with just the right amount of spice.

  1. First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I've had a
    hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out
    there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually
    lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Appreciate it!

  3. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do think that you ought to publish more
    on this issue, it might not be a taboo matter but generally folks
    don't speak about these topics. To the next! All the best!!
