Pumpkin Chocolate Pound Cake

Spongy and super moist pound cakes prepared with homemade pumpkin puree and chocolate chips tastes marvellous just along with a cup of tea or coffee for your snacks or either for a quick breakfast...I went for usual preparation of pound cake in which i have added pumpkin puree and chocolate chips else nothing new in this cake, but the final result was simply tremendous, a super moist cake with a wonderful mild pumpkin flavour, for my surprise everyone at home loved it and this mini pound cakes gets vanished quickly once they came out of the oven..



3nos Eggs (large)
1+1/4cups All purpose flour
2tbsp Corn flour
3/4tsp Baking powder
3/4cup Sugar
1+1/2tsp Vanilla
2tbsp Yogurt
1/4tsp Salt
1/2cup  Butter (room temperature)
1/2cup Pumpkin puree
Chocolate chips as per need

Preheat the oven to 350F, grease the loaf pan or six cup loaf pan..Lightly whisk the eggs,yogurt and vanilla in a medium bowl, meanwhile take the flours, sugar,salt in a large bowl,mix for few seconds, add the softened butter,pumpkin puree and half of the egg mixture,mix until the dry ingredients get moistened, beat in medium speed for a minutes,scrap down the sides..

Add the remaining egg mixture as two batches and beat again for few minutes,scrap down the sides,add the chocolate chips,give a quick stir and pour the batter into prepared pan, smooth the surface with a spatula and bake for 35-40minutes until a woooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean..
