Chocolate Pumpkin Cake
A touch of pumpkin gives this bewitching cake a look and taste that reflects the season.
Glaze: After topping with an Orange Cream-Cheese Frosting, give your cake a cascading chocolate glaze. Place 4 ounces of chopped bittersweet chocolate, 1 tablespoon cold unsalted butter, and 3 tablespoons corn syrup in a medium heatproof bowl. Bring 1/2 cup heavy cream to a boil, pour it over the chocolate, and let sit for 3 minutes. Gently stir, using a whisk, until smooth. Let sit for 3 to 5 minutes, until the glaze thickens slightly. Pour the glaze onto the center of the frosted cake and smooth to the edges to allow it to drip over the sides. Spread gently with the back of a spoon or an offset spatula. If more glaze is needed, add only a little at a time.
