Pumpkin bundt cake with chocolate glaze
Easy pumpkin bundt cake. Moist, soft, spongy and spicy. I am talking cinnamon, ginger, cloves. Mmm, our home truly smells divine right now. We just took it out of the oven and the aroma of the kitchen is literally screaming Christmas. This is our very first pumpkin cake recipe on the blog and our very first marble bundt cake recipe on the blog, so you can only imagine how incredibly excited we are about it. Pumpkin and squash season is pretty long so it’s good to have as many pumpkin recipes as possible in your back pocket. When we tested this recipes and gave it to our family to try it, the first thing they said was “oh, but this tastes exactly like gingerbread cookies.” Yes, it absolutely does and that’s why this wonderful bundt cake is perfect not only as a weekend treat served with tea of coffee, but also as a celebratory dessert. For Christmas, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, New Year’s and birthdays. It’s super easy to make, the preparation only takes about 15 minutes (+ 60 minutes in the oven). However, even though this recipe is so simple, the cake is glamorous, rich and incredibly tasty too.

 

A quick description of this wonderful pumpkin bundt marble cake? Combine everything together with the mixer, bake, let the cake cool, then cover with chocolate glaze and chopped almonds. Why the chocolate glaze? Well because it makes this cake richer and more fabulous and it also makes it perfect for all kinds of celebrations. However, you can leave the chocolate glaze out and only dust with icing sugar. Whatever you prefer.

Jernej and I are both huge all things pumpkin or squash fans. This year we’ve already make pumpkin gnocchi, then pumpkin gnocchi with chicken and veggies and stuffed squash with chickpeas and lentils. There was a delicious new dessert missing but that all changes today.

If you are expecting guests over the weekend, lets say Sunday, but you want to make dessert ahead, than this is a wonderful choice. Make the cake on Saturday and when it’s completely cool, cover it with a large bowl (so that the sides aren’t touching the cake), then serve when you guests arrive. This wonderful pumpkin bundt cake is moist, rich, spicy and truly reminds us of all things Christmas, warmth, homey, hearthy. We love it and we hope you will love it too. Happy baking.

METHOD

  • Pumpkin bundt cake batter

    Preheat your oven to 180 °C / 350 °F. In a bowl combine all-purpose flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and a generous pinch of salt. In a separate, large bowl, combine melted butter, sugar, light brown sugar and Molasses Sugar using an electric mixer. Mix for about a minute.

  • Pumpkin bundt cake batter

    Add the eggs, pumpkin purée and a teaspoon of lemon zest to the butter mixture and mix until you get a nice batter. Now add the dry ingredients and mix to combine. The batter has to be nice and glossy as seen on the photos. Grease a bundt cake tin (approx. 25 cm / 10-inch in diameter) if you like you can also gently dust with flour. Add half of the pumpkin bundt cake batter to the prepared cake tin, and stir the unsweetened cacao powder to the rest of the batter. Stir to combine and add the rest of the batter on top of the batter in the cake tin. Make a couple of swirl using a rubber spatula to create a lovely pumpkin - cacao texture.

    Tip
    Tap the cake tin to the working surface to get rid of any air bubbles.
  • Bake

    Place the cake tin with the pumpkin bundt cake to the oven and bake for about 50 - 60 minutes at 180 °C / 350 °F. When the cake is baked, when it’s still a little warm turn over to unmold over a wire rack and let it cool for at least 30 minutes.

  • Chocolate glaze and serve

    Melt the chocolate and butter. Stir in the chopped almonds. Pour the melted chocolate over the pumpkin bundt cake and let the chocolate to set, then cut on desired slices and serve. Enjoy.
