Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake with Vanilla-Cinnamon Icing

November 24, 2013

I made this cake for Ashley’s Thanksgiving Feast at school and only wish I could have had a slice. I loved the scents wafting through the kitchen while it was baking – so mouth-watering!

I thought, I’d share the recipe in case you are still looking for a last-minute idea for a Thanksgiving Day dessert. This would make a great substitute if you are not a pie lover (like me) and prefer something a bit more cakey!!!

pumpkin spice bundt cake with vanilla-cinnamon icing


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter – melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon gloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin


In a large bowl combine sugar and melted butter, mix with electric mixer until well blended, add eggs, one at a time, mixing each one well. Add pumpkin until well-blended. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, gloves, ginger and salt in a separate bowl. Add the mixture slowly, mixing well after each addition.

Transfer to a greased and floured bundt cake pan. Bake at 350º degrees for about 60-65 minutes. Let cool completely before adding icing.

For the icing: Combine 2 cups confectioners sugar with 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1-2 tablespoons milk, mix well until smooth, spoon on top of cake and let drip down sides. Wait until icing has dried completely before covering!!!
