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.
- 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.
