I love a good Bundt cake. They are easy to make—often just requiring a mixing bowl and a wooden spoon to mix up the batter. And even unadorned, they’re showstoppers.

A casual drizzle of a simple glaze gives a Bundt cake an elegant look.

This pumpkin spice Bundt cake is moist and delicious. Warming pumpkin pie spice, which includes cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg, adds seasonal flavor.  

And of course, pumpkin purée gives the cake a rich sweetness, keeps it moist. It also adds that beautiful orange hue and pumpkin flavor.

A drizzle of coffee glaze turns this pumpkin spice cake into a pumpkin spice latte cake. It has all the flavors of your fave fancy fall coffee drink in a luscious cake.

What ingredients do you need?

This is a pretty standard cake made from the usual cake ingredients, most of which you likely have in your pantry. Of course, the secret is in the three flavoring ingredients—pureed pumpkin (I use canned), brewed coffee, and pumpkin pie spice.

  • Eggs
  • Pumpkin puree (1 15-ounce can)
  • Vegetable oil (or any neutral-flavored oil)
  • Granulated sugar
  • Dark brown sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking soda
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • Powdered sugar
  • Brewed coffee

You’ll also need a 9- or 10-inch Bundt pan. I like this Nordic Ware Bundt Pan.

How to make pumpkin pie spice with pantry spices?

I love using pre-made seasoning mixtures like chili powder or pumpkin pie spice because they save time in the kitchen. I also love that you can buy them in a single bottle rather than buying a dozen individual spices.

If you have the spices at home individually, you can certainly substitute them. Or whip up a homemade pumpkin spice blend.

Here’s how to make your your own pumpkin pie spice. Stir together:

  • 1/4 cup ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon ground allspice
  • 1 tablespoon ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

This makes about 1/2 cup of seasoning. Keep the seasoning mixture in a tightly capped jar in your spice rack for up to 6 months.

Thai Fish Cakes

These easy Thai Fish Cakes are loaded with the flavors of lemongrass, cilantro, and hot chilies. This recipe uses Thai curry paste, which provides layers of flavor without requiring a ton of ingredients.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound white fish fillet, cut into several pieces
  • ¼ cup cilantro, plus additional for serving
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons red or green curry paste (see note)
  • 1 egg white
  • 4 makrut lime leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced Chinese long beans (or sub green beans)
  • ½ cup cooking oil (or enough to fill your skillet about ½-inch deep)
  • Lime wedges, for serving

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, combine the fish, curry paste, egg white, fish sauce, and sugar and pulse until the mixture forms a thick paste. Add the cornstarch and pulse until it is well incorporated. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the sliced beans.
  2. Heat the oil in a medium, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat, until it shimmers.
  3. Form the fish mixture into balls a little larger than golf balls and then flatten them into ½-inch-thick patties.
  4. Add the patties to the skillet, 3 or 4 at a time. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side, until deep golden brown. Transfer the cooked patties to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat until all of the patties have been formed and fried.
  5. Serve hot with lime wedges, cilantro, and Sweet Thai Chili Dipping Sauce, if desired.

Notes

1. You can use just about any white fish for this recipe. I’ve made it with both cod and catfish. Other options would be haddock, pollock, grouper, or snapper.

2. You can use either red or green Thai curry paste in this recipe, though red is more common. I love green curry paste, though, and think it works just as well in these fish cakes. I tested this recipe using Mae Ploy red curry paste and Mae Ploy green curry paste. One tablespoon of the red was plenty, while I found the green (which is less spicy) required 2 tablespoons to really pop the flavor.

3. Whichever type of curry paste you choose, be careful how much you use. The spice level can vary widely between brands, so start with a smaller amount if you are not used to very spicy food. I usually use Mae Ploy curry pastes, which are very spicy. If I use more than 1 or 2 tablespoons, it is too spicy for my family. Thai Kitchen brand is easy to find in supermarkets, and it is much milder. I would use at least 3 tablespoons of it.
