I like a challenge!

Even if you don't like pumpkin pie, pumpkin anything, you have GOT to try this recipe for Chocolate-Pumpkin Pound Cake. It's my twist on one similar I found when looking for a new recipe to add to my Thanksgiving menu. Nobody in my family likes pumpkin and when I stated that I was going to make a pumpkin dessert, they asked me if I really had to, and of course I took that as a challenge. Let me tell you, when my hubby (most against a pumpkin anything) and my kids tasted this cake..............they literally melted to the floor right in front of me. Okay, maybe not, but they LOVED it. The hubby even insisted I put some in a container for him to take to work last night, and also, my biggest critic, my step dad......said it was "pretty good, but not as good as just plain ol' chocolate cake". :) He loves his chocolate cake. Anyway, enough about that. This is one of the best cakes I've ever made. It's incredibly moist, and with my added cream cheese, has a bit of baked cheesecake consistency. Yum!!!
