  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9x5 inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line pan with parchment; coat with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar. Add butter, buttermilk, and vanilla. Whisk until combined. Fold in pumpkin.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients all at once; whisk just until no lumps remain.
  5. Divide batter in half. Add melted chocolate and cocoa powder to half the batter; stir to combine.
  6. Alternately add batters to pan. Using a knife, swirl through batter. Bake 55 to 65 minutes until cake has risen and crackled, and a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Remove; let cool 20 minutes. Invert onto a wire rack and let cool completely.
  7. For orange glaze, in a small bowl stir together powdered sugar, orange peel, and orange juice. Spoon over cooled cake.
