Dark Chocolate and Pumpkin Swirl Cake

Directions

Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line bottom of pan with parchment paper and coat the parchment paper with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk together eggs and sugar. Add melted butter, buttermilk, and vanilla. Whisk until combined. Fold in pumpkin.
  4. Add the wet ingredients all at once to the dry ingredients and whisk just until no lumps remain.
  5. Divide batter in half. Add the melted chocolate and cocoa powder to half of the batter; stir to combine.
  6. Add the two batters to the loaf pan, alternating between pumpkin and chocolate. Using a table knife, swirl through the batter. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove and cool in pan for 20 minutes. Remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. In a small bowl stir together the powdered sugar, half of the orange peel, and enough of the orange juice to make of drizzling consistency. Spoon over cooled loaf. Top with remaining orange peel.

I obviously did something wrong as the chocolate part was almost too thick to spread, let alone "swirl with a knife". I used baker's chocolate, since it didn't specify. I wonder what other people used? I had semi-sweet chocolate chips on hand, but went for the Baker's chocolate. I would appreciate any suggestions. I expect mine to come out like a brick, rather than a loaf of pumpkin cake/bread which is very disappointing considering the special ingredients I purchased to make this. Not a happy camper.

I'm not sure what I did wrong, but the chocolate part was so thick I couldn't spread it. I used 3 oz. unsweetened baker's chocolate, since the recipe didn't specify and I assumed that is what they meant. Anyway, it wasn't particularly easy, and there was no chance of "using a knife to swirl it"..Perhaps it will turn out better than I expect, but right now not expecting anything but a brick. I double checked all of my measurements thinking I had put two little liquid in it Very disappointed and a waste of some primo ingredients purchased especially for this recipe. If anyone can suggest a different version of the chocolate I would appreciate it. I had semi sweet choc drops available that I could have used, but the recipe didn't say "semi-sweet". It just said "dark chocolate".. .

A crowd pleaser! I make with and without the glaze. Delicious both ways.
