Every year I get super excited because I love everything about autumn. Just one of the things I love about fall is pumpkins! Yes, I admit it. I am a lover of all things pumpkin! Therefore today’s recipe for Easy Pumpkin Bundt Cake should come as no surprise to anyone. I love adding yet another pumpkin recipe to our pumpkin repertoire. 🙂
While growing up on a farm, harvest season was always busy, yet a productive time. Having harvested crops in the bins or at the elevator meant another farming season had come and gone. The cold winter months were for rest and a time to gear up for the next spring planting season.
The growing season also meant that we had plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, not to mention plenty of pecans and walnuts! Every spring Mom would always plant several hills ofConnecticut Field pumpkin seedsand taught mehow to make Fried Pumpkin Blossoms. My whole family LOVES fried pumpkin blossoms because they taste almost identical to fried wild morel mushrooms!
Now let’s talk about this Easy Pumpkin Bundt Cake.
This pumpkin bundt cake recipe can easily be modified to be gluten-free. Therefore it is a splendid option for anyone on a gluten-free diet. The cake is just a little denser than when using wheat flour, although no one will probably ever be able to tell the difference.
1 tablespoon ground flax (*use for gluten-free option only)
2 teaspoons baking soda
3 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 can (15 ounces) pureed pumpkin (without spices)
1 teaspoon butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 to 3 teaspoons milk, or enough to make icing thin enough to drizzle over cake.
In a large bowl, combine sugar and oil until blended.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a separate mixing bowl combine flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, salt, (also add guar gum and flax for gluten-free option only); add to egg mixture alternately with pumpkin, beating well after each addition.
Pour into a well-greased 10-inch bundt pan.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 60-65 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack.
Remove pan and cool completely.
In a small mixing bowl combine butter, vanilla, confectioner's sugar and milk; drizzle icing over cake.
This cake is great served warm with a scoop of vanilla bean, cinnamon, butter pecan or caramel ice cream.
