Dry ingredients - In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and all the spices (pumpkin spice, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg) - and set aside.
In a bowl of a stand mixer, with the whisk attachment, whip the eggs for a minute. Then, gradually add the sugar a little at a time. Once all the sugar is in, continue to whip until light and foamy - ribbon stage
Next, gradually add the oil, followed by the sour cream and pumpkin puree. Then, add the flour mixture followed by the chocolate chips. Pro tip - we do not want to activate the gluten in our batter so do not overmix.
Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan. Spread evenly with a spatula.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, invert and cool completely on the cooling rack. Pro tip - if you let the cake cool for 10 minutes it will cool the cake and help release it from the pan. Hot cakes can get stuck in bundt pans.
Combine powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla in a measuring cup. Pro tip -The consistency of the glaze must be a thick pouring consistency. It is better to be thicker rather than thinner for good coverage.
Pour over the cooled cake with a spoon as shown in the video. Garnish with chocolate chips.
Use fine-grain sugars when preparing cake batters so it dissolves easily.
Make sure the pumpkin spice is fresh. Spices kept for too long loose flavor. I make a fresh batch of homemade pumpkin spice every year.
Use flavorless oil for cakes so it does not overpower the flavor in the cake.
Grease and line bundt pans wells. Nothing is worst than to have a delicious cake stuck in the bundt
Cool the cakes for a few hours before glazing. Otherwise, the glaze will melt off the cake and you won't have a pretty thick coverage.
Serve any leftover glaze alongside the cake. People do love extra glaze.
