  • 150g butter, chopped
  • 300g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 220g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 185g plain flour
  • 25g cocoa powder
  • 60g sour cream
  • 250g cream cheese, softened
  • 400g pumpkin puree


  1. Preheat oven to 160’C. Grease and line a 20cm (base measurement) square cake pan with baking paper, allowing 2 sides to overhang.
  2. Combine the butter and chocolate in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until butter and chocolate melt. Remove from heat.
  3. Add the sugar and 2 of the eggs and stir to combine. Add the flour, cocoa powder and sour cream. Stir to combine.
  4. Use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese and remaining sugar in a bowl until well combined. Add the remaining egg and pumpkin puree and beat until just combined.
  5. Spoon the chocolate mixture and cream cheese mixture, alternating, over the base of the pan. Use a skewer to swirl to create a marbled effect. Bake for 40 mins or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 1 hour to cool. Cut into pieces to serve.
