Variations of Pumpkin desserts!

We love pumpkin dessert recipes. You can make many variations when making a pumpkin dessert, from gluten-free no bake chocolate pumpkin pie to light pumpkin cheesecake with blueberry topping.

Today, I combined chocolate with pumpkin cake. This dessert has multiple layers of flavour working together to satisfy your sweet tooth and cravings for a decadent dessert.

The chocolate’s creaminess and the pumpkin’s sweetness complement each other so well. Adding ganache to the mix takes this healthy-ish gluten-free dessert recipe to the top of our list of desserts.

The pumpkin cake is tender and moist, and the chocolate ganache takes it to a new level.
The entire process may seem complicated since it has a few steps (I was not kidding about that). But each step is simple, and you will be done in under 20 minutes!
