Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake

When asked what I should do with the plethora of pumpkins, I got some fab suggestions (THANK YOU!).  One suggestion being my mom's recipe for Pumpkin cake brought to my attention by friends of my mom's.  "My mom's recipe for pumpkin cake? She had a recipe? Do I even remember that? I must have had it! Where would I get it?  Oh, the blue church cookbook? The one that's sitting on my shelf? Well, there it is!" And just like that, I had something I had to bake. It's been 18 years since I lost my mom, baking one of her recipes for the first time is pretty special. 

You know what? It's delicious.
