Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake

I'm LOVING this fall season and all of these yummy pumpkin recipes! This bundt cake is super easy to whip up and so delicious. I'm really surprised with myself that I didn't add chocolate chips to this cake but it's so good with the cream cheese frosting that it really doesn't need anything else. However, next time I make this I'm definitely going to try it with chocolate chips because I readily admit that I'm seriously addicted to chocolate!
