Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake with Creamy Pumpkin Glaze
It is slightly intimidating to be writing a post on Amanda’s site. If you know my work at Dine & Dish at all, you will note that cake decorating, cookie decorating, basically any kind of decorating at all is not a talent I possess. My one and only attempt at piping roses turned into what I would call a collection of “cabbages”, looking nothing like the beautiful roses Amanda is able to produce!
I have a great appreciation for beautiful food, especially cakes. Because I lack decorating skills, I like to turn to the Bundt cake for something beautiful without all the fancy decorating. Bundt cakes seem to have a simple elegance without requiring a lot of work.
For this dessert, I adapted my favorite sour cream Bundt cake recipe and added pumpkin to give it a fall twist. I also created a powdered sugar glaze, but included pumpkin and cinnamon there as well. The result? A beautiful pumpkin Bundt cake, perfect for fall. I hope you enjoy it.
Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake with Creamy Pumpkin Glaze
For the cake:
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
For the glaze:
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
For the cake:
- Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt pan (I use Pam Baking spray).
- Add sugar and butter to a large mixing bowl. Beat on low until light and fluffy.
- Slowly add the eggs, one at a time, and continue mixing until well incorporated.
- Add the pumpkin, sour cream and vanilla, mixing on slow speed until well blended.
- While mixer is still going on slow, add the flour, one cup at a time. Next, add the cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Blend until well incorporated.
- Pour cake batter into prepared Bundt cake. Bake for 60 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clear.
For the glaze:
- Place powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk milk into the powdered sugar. Continue whisking until no lumps appear.
- Continue whisking while adding vanilla, canned pumpkin, cinnamon and melted butter.
- Once glaze is smooth, gently pour over the top of the Bundt cake, allowing to drizzle down the side of the cake.
- Slice, serve and enjoy.
Thank you so much Kristen! This cake is stunning and I am so excited to make it for our Thanksgiving celebration!
