Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Bundt Cakes

I have the yummiest bundt cake recipe to share with you today.

Not only are they delicious, they are SO pretty!!

I made a batch last weekend.  My family inhaled them and I shared some with our neighbors.  My four year old said they were the most delicious muffins ever so you really need to give them a try.

I was inspired by this recipe from Oh Sweet Basil, but made changes to come up with my own version below.  They are the lightest, fluffiest mini bundt cakes you can imagine.  They definitely have a pumpkin taste, but the addition of the banana makes the pumpkin more subtle.  This is such an easy recipe and I bet you'll have all of the ingredients you need in your pantry right now.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Bundt Cakes

2 eggs
1/3 c room temp margarine
1/4 t vanilla
3/4 c sugar
1 3/4 c flour
1 t baking powder
1/4 t baking soda
2 t cinnamon
sprinkle of salt
1/2 c pumpkin puree
2 mashed ripe bananas
1 c chocolate chips

Combine butter and sugar in a mixer.  Add in one egg at a time.  Mix in wet ingredients.  Add in dry ingredients and fold in chocolate chips last.  Save a handful of chocolate chips to sprinkle into the greased bundt pan before adding in the batter.

Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned & toothpick comes out clean.

Yields: 12 mini bundt cakes

I used a cookie scoop to put three equal scoops in each bundt cake.  Then I used a spoon to press the batter down evenly.  This Wilton baking pan was perfect for the job.  It's a heavy pan and nothing sticks to it.  It's wonderful - thanks, Mom!

Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes and then remove.

These were such pretty little treats!!

SECRET TIP: I wanted the chocolate chips to be prominent on the top of the mini cakes so I sprinkled a few chips into each spot on the bundt cake pan before adding in the batter.  That way I knew there would definitely be chocolate chips on top of each cake.

You could easily pick these up and eat them or get a little fancier with a fork.

What's your favorite thing to bake this time of year??
