Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

It’s September, which means I’m craving the crisp breeze of Fall, leaves changing colors, and everything and anything that has to do with pumpkin. We are starting to get some pleasant pre-fall weather with the occasional hot stick humid day.

One thing I can do is bring the pumpkin on. I will be drinking Pumpkin Spice Latte’s even though it’s 97 degrees out and I will be baking with pumpkin as much as possible forcing that delicious spicy cinnamon scent throughout my house.

This bundt cake is rich, moist, and the perfect start to the Fall season.

Whenever I make this my people never guess that its vegan. It’s delicious and goes perfectly with a glass of milk, coffee, or tea.

Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake (using a mini-bundt pan)


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 15oz can pumpkin
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine your flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Set aside. In a separate bowl combine your sugar, vegetable oil, applesauce, pumpkin, and vanilla. Using a standing or hand held mixer, mix until all ingredients are blending through. Slowly add your dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and mix until all ingredients are combined. Spray a large bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pout batter into pan and bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.

    Just curious – how large is a mini bundt pan? Mine is about 10 inches across and 3 inches deep. Just wondering if I need to scale up the recipe? Thanks!!
