    Hi Jess, I love most types of "dump" cakes and I certainly love pumpkin. Problem is I end up eating most of what I cook – tastes good to the lips, bad for the hips! I guess I'll worry about that on Jan 1st.Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    I’ve made this in the past, Jessica, and I can attest that it’s soooo good! However, I’ve never put in the chocolate chips! That’s a new addition to me, but I’ll bet it’s really yummy!
